Kissimmee Chain of Lakes/West Lake Toho
With most of the hydrilla topped out this time of year, your best bet to fish the edges of the hydrilla patches. Plastic baits are a good choice - Zoom trick worm, Flukes, and the Vibe are the most popular. The Summer showers are producing flow out of shingle creek. Best Bet is right at daylight. Goblins Cove has been producing very good quality fish. Most fish are hanging deep ...more

Anna Maria Island March 2 Fishing Report
Wow, what a couple of days make. The weather has turned for the better and the 10 day forecast is sunny everyday and in the 70’s; it may even get into the 80’s a few days. We had decent fishing this past week, but we had to work for it with the cold, windy and foggy weather. We still made it happen though. We even landed a Snook just shy of 40 inches a couple days ago. ...more

Reel Till U Feel Charters fishing report for Tampa Bay.
With the Rain, Wind, Cold Fronts & Small Craft Advisories has made getting out on the water difficult. On the days I was able to run my charters the morning bite was rough with the bite turning on in the afternoon as the water temperature had time to rise.
On one trip we fished the outgoing tide around a Oyster bed with great action, Trout, Sheepshead, Ladyfish, ...more

Captain Darin and mate Steve were busy today with back-to-back fishing charters off Ft. Lauderdale. Their anglers had great fun catching a giant greater hammerhead shark and some bonitos during the 8 12 pm morning trip. The shark action continued during the 1 5 pm afternoon trip as their second group of anglers caught a scalloped hammerhead shark. Some blackfin tunas and a nice mahi-mahi were also ...more
Get Em’ Early Or Get Em’ Late! Posted Jul 25, 2014 4:18 PM by Nomad
Now that the fireworks have come and gone it’s time to get out and do some fishing. Since the last I’ve done several trips in between family vacations. Unfortunately, it seemed to rain for almost two weeks straight when I returned forcing me to reschedule some trips. A few days ago that all changed and we have now settled into our typical summer pattern and fishing again.
On my last trip before leaving town ...more

Hello fellow anglers. What a great fishing trip, a wonderful day on the water with a lovely couple in from Mississippi. Mrs. Cindy, recently in all the way from Afghanistan, came to enjoy some of the best fishing anywhere in the world. Von gave a plan of attack and he wanted Cindy to tussle with a big Redfish before she was planned to deploy back to Afghanistan on Monday morning. First we needed some fish for a fish fry ...more

Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing has been outstanding for big speckled trout the last 2 months. The spring and summer months are great for fishing top water plugs and lipped diving crank baits in deep drop offs along the St Johns River. I have had the most success using "walk the dog" style lures such as a Zara Spook and Skitter Walk plugs in the early morning ...more
Most diving plugs right out of the package don't catch fish. Some do, but most don't, they need to be tuned. Tie the plug on as recommended by the manufacturer. Usually a snap (not snap swivel) or an open loop knot is best. Once tied on, let out a few feet of line and pull the plug through the water at the rate that you will be trolling or retrieving the plug. Make sure you can see the plug in the water. It needs to run straight, perfectly straight! If it turns on its right side, turn the clasp on the plug to the left. If it runs left, turn the clasp right. You won't need to turn the clasp much to make the adjustments. Keep pulling the plug through the water and making adjustments, make it run straight as an arrow. Test your plugs after catching a fish or getting snagged, both of these things can make a plug run out of tune. You'll hook more fish with a finely tuned plug, take the time and do it. The pro's do.
