What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: SonarSup Around 200′ we noticed a decent amount of scattered weeds. We got bit on mid-distance centerline from the boat with a pink and white islander on pre-rigged ballyhoo with wire. We saw a flash of blue, but no acrobatics. We cleared the other lines, and got the fish to the back of the boat and saw the zebra. As soon as he saw the boat, he took a smoking run. We barely got him back up and in the boat.
Florida Sportsman member: SLW UroCane Hugged a few mangrove shorelines and released ten small snook and three reds. Again using live shrimp on 1/8 ounce HookUp jig, but floated it from a popping cork. Then went South along the East side of the river. Water was clear and the pompano were skipping! Caught four fat ones, used Goofy Jig, 3/8 ounce.
An east coast skiff guide divulges his secrets for locating and catching beach-run tarpon. Good numbers of tarpon are off the beaches in east/central Florida from late-May through October, as they are along Florida’s Gulf of Mexico shores.
Sapp decided to slow troll live baits and run the boat to sailfish spotted from the tower of Liquid, a 39-foot Sea Vee. The run-and-gun approach paid off. The Liquid team released nine more sailfish on day 2 to edge out Reel Easy by one fish and win top boat in the 79th annual derby with a two-day total of 11 releases.
