hot day in Florida today. in the 90's and very sunny. even that bass were trying to stay cool. slow day all around, bass chilling under the thick weeds, not ...more striking at the frog. threw on a senko on Texas rig. spotted hole in the weeds and pitched my worm 3ft past it. dragged it back to the hole and let it sink. one twitch got this guy to nail it.

calm day on the water. went out on high tide. fishing from the boat about 15 yards off the jetties. first cast I got a high slot snook. but broke me off. free ...more lined a shrimp about 5yards of the jetties and this slot flounder nailed it. I was getting most strikes about 5yards off the jetties. if you cast too close you'll get caught on the big rocks. love jetties, they hold a variety of species.

rough day on the water. really choppy and windy so I decided to anchor the boat and hop on the jetties. using shrimp, threw some weight on there because of the rough ...more water. key was to cast 20 yards off the jetties and let the wind/ current bring the shrimp back toward the jetties. this snook apparently liked my technique. hard to keep it off the rocks as it continually tried to cut me off .

fishing in a backwater brackish water pond, if you didn't know better it looks like a freshwater lake but a canal feeds into it. the pond drops off to about ...more 10ft.

nice slot redfish that I saw scavenging a oyster bed. not a lot of action on the grass flats but as tide was coming in reds started to head onto the oyster beds. ...more the key was to toss a shrimp right where the oyster bed meets the sandy flat so you don't get hooked up on the oysters. 84°F and sunny. high tide, fishing in about 2 1/2 ft of water.

Awesome day on the flats. low tide, and strong wind pushing me down the flats. while drifting in about 2ft of water I noticed a water bird get scared, immediately ...more seeing this red right behind it I casted a shrimp 5ft in front of it. felt a few taps on my line, then the fight was on. baitfish were in sand pockets and usually a red would be close by. most reds were in 2-3ft of water. 80° and sunny.

today I started off with working a senko, which is a bait that I started to stray away from and I don't know why. bass can't resist these baits, and are ...more lethal when rigged weedless when you are in heavy brush. these baits attract all sizes of bass, so you might go through a hand full of small bass before you get a lunker. caught 7 bass all in all. sunny and high of 85°. slight breeze from the S.
