Miami Live Baiting

Florida Sportsman member: Ghostrider In short order we managed to sabiki only a few threadfins and got a net full of ballyhoo. We made it to the edge and put the baits out, a few minutes later we missed a small dolphin that tried to eat a large ballyhoo.

Road Trip to the Glades

Florida Sportsman member: SLW Urocane We used a combo of live shrimp under a cork, topwater, Gulp! swim baits and chunks of ladyfish. Caught 10 species throughout the weekend, including snook, redfish, trout, tarpon (small), bonnethead and blacktip sharks, ladyfish, jacks, tones of small mangos, catfish (surprise!), and sheepshead.

South Florida Peacock Bass

When you hear the word bass, most think of sparkly boats, baitcasters and big tournament payouts. But for fisherman in South Florida, the peacock bass is the staple in the local freshwater systems. With their aggressive eats, strong runs and beautiful colors, these fish have become prized gamefish.

How-To

Ambidexterity

It pays to become a proficient caster with either hand, but until then, here’s a shortcut. The redfish materialized at 2 o’clock. I told my fisherman where they were and started turning the boat. He couldn’t wait.
