As soon as the weather starts to cool from the First Coast’s first few Nor’easters, the mullet begin to make their journey to warmer, southern waters. Big game fish follow the migrating mullet and feed incessantly, fattening up for their journey south. Flounder are one of these game fish that target the masses of mullet, ambushing them, as they pour from our river out of the inlet. Flounder can be targeted in a variety of ways, from wading to kayak fishing. For the majority of anglers, … [Read more...] about Targeting Flounder in the Fall Months
Guest Post by ProStaffer Keith Krafft Musky are the most elusive fish I’ve ever targeted in my life; they truly are a fish of 10,000 casts. In our area, they’re predominately focused in rivers, such as the New and James River. The musky in these fisheries range in size, from a weight and length of 8lbs. and 28 inches, to upwards of 50lbs. and 55 inches, with a 50 plus inch musky being a great accomplishment. The fish here recently finished up spawning and are beginning to feed up heavily. … [Read more...] about Tales of the Freshwater Toothy: Virginia Musky Bite
A quick post from our Pro Staffer, Bill Bostic. "Attached is a snapshot from yesterday, Friday, 2/13/15........... winter time bass fishing at Lake Ozark in Missouri.

Many people would agree that as far as seafood goes, sheephead are one of northeast Florida's top table-fare. As the water starts to cool down, or warm up (given the last month of brutal cold weather), sheephead should start stealing many a jetty fisherman's bait, thus adding another wrinkle to the well known name of "convict fish." Fishing for "heads" is a type of fishing where, many say, you have to set the hook when you think that the sheephead is just about to bite. There are plenty of … [Read more...] about “Chasing Convicts” – by Zsolt Takacs
My grandparents lived in Fort Myers, Florida for as long as I can remember. Which meant that we got to go and visit, play on the beach, eat mangos off the tree and have fresh squeezed orange juice. It also meant that this wonderful man would fire up his rickety old boat, throw some tuna fish sandwiches and fig newtons (never got those cookies, but we always ate them on our fishing trips!) and cart us off into the mangroves to fish all day long. I don't think that he ever actually fished when we … [Read more...] about My Favorite Fishing Memory, Part 1!
