What's Biting Now

Big Fish on the Bottom

Florida Sportsman member: The BEAST We did another fun trip with family and friends down in Key Largo. They had fun swim fishing for hog fish and schoolmasters. We went after some muttons with the only 3 live ballyhoo we managed to catch. We got 3 nice muttons, 8, 9½, and 17 pounds.

Hot Bite in the Bay

Florida Sportsman member: Tidesright We had to force my buddy John on the bow as he is always quick to jump on the poling platform. He got a shot and the line started to peel off the reel as the fish screamed across the flat. A couple tense moments later and Permit was in the boat!

Bug Light: Popular Artificial Reef and Live Bait Spot Demolished

South Florida anglers got a shock this past weekend when they went to catch live bait at perhaps the most popular artificial reef in the region: Bug Light, a decommissioned navigational marker in Biscayne Bay off Cape Florida that has served as a haven for bait fish and roosting sea birds for decades, was gone.

How-To

Redfish like this one caught by Jerry Coleman can be sight fished via kayak by standing and poling the flats.

On the Spot

Feel the urge to hunt? Now’s the time to give standup redfishing a shot. When kayakers ask about sight-fishing for giant Indian River Lagoon spotted seatrout, most recommend they stay seated and content themselves with casting. Redfish may be another story.
