February Inshore Review

Florida Sportsman: Matt822 The trout bite has been really good as well with some fish in the 24-28″ range. I’ve been getting them on zman paddle tails, bouncing the edges of the pot holes in one to five feet of water. They usually hit it on the drop, so be ready.

Small Lake Bass

Within minutes we boated a fat 3-pound bass, and that was the start of a steady parade of fish. By the time an early afternoon thunderstorm ended our day, we had tallied over 20 bass. The best was pushing 7 pounds.

How-To

Sight-fish Sailfish Like a Pro

Sapp decided to slow troll live baits and run the boat to sailfish spotted from the tower of Liquid, a 39-foot Sea Vee. The run-and-gun approach paid off. The Liquid team released nine more sailfish on day 2 to edge out Reel Easy by one fish and win top boat in the 79th annual derby with a two-day total of 11 releases.
