Running the Bay Boat Offshore

Florida Sportsman Member: SouthshoreSlayer After about 2 hours of snapper fishing the flat lines start getting cut off. We didn’t have any wire or long shank hooks, we all rigged our big setups and the king bite was on for the next hour.

Insane Snook Day

Florida Sportsman member: Bassin Assassin I loosen my drag cause I know she isn’t done. She gets to the boat and dives under it. I stick my rod in the water and she makes another long run for the mangroves, then a half-jump. Nice!

Tampa Bay Double – Winter Action

From the duck blind to the redfish flats for an extra dose of cold season action. Ask most sportsmen about the action on Tampa Bay and they’ll say it’s a “blast.” Practically speaking, that colloquialism usually starts with a “cast” to snook, redfish, trout and the like.
