What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: surferjs01 Surprisingly, we have been landing a lot of bulls lately. As well as tips, spinners, and even lost a large hammer a few nights ago. Sharks are averaging in the 6 foot range, yet we’ve been catching them up to 7.5 feet (bull). Bait of choice has been live/ freshly cut ray.
Tricks to take big bream on fly. Several years ago, I caught a mixed bag of four dozen bluegills and shellcrackers during a single, glorious afternoon. While that was practically all the law allowed, the real kicker is that these fish weighed close to a pound apiece.
