Sportsman's Best 2017 Calendar

Whether you fish inshore or offshore, from a boat or from shore, on any given day in Florida you have the chance to catch that fish of a lifetime. For sure luck factors in at some point in any record or memorable catch, but more often than not the fish you read about or see featured in this calendar are the culmination of lots of little decisions.

For successful inshore anglers presentation and bait selection are more important than rigging. For catching fish offshore, presentation is important, but big baits and big fish mean rigging takes on a more critical role.

As for how you reach the fish, by boat or by land, those decisions to factor into the likelihood of you posting a noteworthy catch. Much like matching the hatch, meaning picking the right bait for a fish, you want to also match the boat to the fish. To make it into the happy side of the 20/80 club, the small percentage of people catching most of the fish, we created the Sportsman's Best Book and DVD series. We picked the most popular species and techniques to catch them to feature. Now we've created the Sportsman's Best calendar as a reminder that you too, armed with the right information, on any given day of the year in Florida can also catch that fish of a lifetime.
