Leaving Them Biting

Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton I started chumming in 65 feet and slowly brought the fish to visual distance and after a few test I did, to determine the best way to catch them, we started slowly picking at these nice size yellowtails. The current got better, after the wind dropped and the fish, turned on real good, letting us reach our limit and we left the big ball hungry for next time.

October in the ‘Glades

Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami Redfishing has been good most days and we usually find them with small snook. The big surprise has been the number of sawfish we’ve encountered while working bait for those reds.

Features

Slick calm days are fewer than in summer, but the average fish is bigger. This one's 130 pounds, taken by the Three Buoys crew off Palm Beach County.

Warming Up to Winter Swordfish

Many of the largest swordfish of the year are caught as they migrate through our waters in winter. Each year as the weather turns cold, Florida east coast anglers begin targeting sailfish as they migrate south with each passing cold front. When chasing sailfish, the best fishing usually occurs on the leading edge of the cold front when the wind is blowing the hardest and the seas are rough.

Spoon Fly: Catch Florida Redfish and More

This imitation of a successful lure works just as well when tied as a fly. All veteran redfishermen are aware of how effective weedless spoons are on reds. Jon Cave knew this as well and wanted to transfer that success to flyfishing.
