What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: BryanC That was pretty cool to see, and I thought we were kind of lucky to land it with 10 pound mono & no leader. A couple minutes later his line goes off again, and it’s another permit! After that everyone started to copy what he was doing and we ended up catching a total of 5 permit over the span of 45 minutes.
Florida Sportsman Member: ericf Live blue runners, frozen sardines, regurgitated whatever from caught fish picked off the deck of the boat, nothing lasted more than 20 to 30 seconds. We limited out in about half an hour, and released a few fish after that. It was mayhem, totally crazy.
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.
Dogfish Tackle Company was established in 1985 by owner Bob Martin when he started selling tackle at the Wagon Wheel Flea Market.
Consider these tackle shops in the West Central region the next time you plan a fishing trip.
