What's Biting Now
Florida Sportsman member: gettinwet We started in the backwaters focusing around mangrove points and cuts between islands as well as schools of large black mullet. After a lot of short strikes on topwater plugs we did manage to hook up a couple of nice reds.
Florida Sportsman Member:releasegear By the time I got the wire rod down and blue runner on he was out of site so I tossed him straight off the back, 5/0 circle hook, 12 inches of 90 pound wire , 50 pound flouro leader and 50 pound braid on a Shimano Baitrunner. Thirty seconds later the wahoo explodes on the runner, shooting out of the water like a missile.

Consider these tackle shops in the West Central region the next time you plan a fishing trip.
