What's Biting Now

South Snapper Bite

Florida Sportsman member: miami mutton The mangrove bite has been great from Fowey rocks to carrysfort light. We did catch some real nice size ones. The current was perfect to the north both trips, one trip we caught a bunch of nice ones and a couple of muttons. On the next trip, We caught two huge ones, before I noticed the boat was filled with water and we were about to sink.

South Florida Inshore

Florida Sportsman member: lemaymiami Daytimes are for the Everglades either out of Flamingo or Everglades City. Our most recent trip there was over on the Flamingo side for two days and the fish were biting…. I had Steve Benson, his 13 year old son Kobe, and Kobe’s friend Luke aboard. These two young men are already accomplished anglers, ready to go heads up with anything we found for them.

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

The Nervous Rex is similar in size to a magnum spook

Soft Plastic Topwaters

When bass are tight to cover or buried beneath it, getting a lure in front of them can be difficult. Plugs with treble hooks are suited for nibbling around edges of cover. If fish are active such an approach may work well. However, when bass hunker in places inaccessible to most lures, as they often do, a weedless offering is a must.
