What's Biting Now

Surf Fishing Sharks

Surf Fishing Sharks

Florida Sportsman Member: MuskyChaser We dropped baits an hour before sunset and right after the sun went down my 50w started screaming. A short ten minute battle later I had a decent 6.5′ lemon shark on the sand.

Sanilbel Sheepshead

Sanibel Sheepshead

Florida Sportsman member: larrywitt The light rod and line is doing its job. He lands his first 17″ to 18″ sheepshead and boy is there a smile on his face now. We ended up with 14 sheeps from 14″ to 18″ in the box, we released a large amount of legal size ones to get a little bigger, two nice pompano, and one nice flounder.



A Step Above the Others

Fly fishing for summer tarpon from a unique perspective. I’ve caught many fish from the comfort and stability of my ladder long after the sea breeze swept waves have chased the others away.

Trolling for Speckled Perch

On lakes big and small, in rough water or calm, trolling is a great way to catch speckled perch, a.k.a. black crappie.
