  • Tripletail Time By - 02/24/2015 by FSFA Past-President Steve Goff My son Brian and I decided to head out nearshore today to fish for Tripletail. We ran across a number of them in the buoy line and the bight. We were seeing 3 or 4 at a time with some nice keepers. Got a few of them for dinner. Then the clouds moved in so we headed back.

  • Peacock Bass in Miami - 02/15/2015 by FSFA member Dan Thompson I was in Miami and had some time Friday morning to go to the house of a friend who lives on a lake in South Miami.  I borrowed his small row boat and spent a couple of hours rowing around the lake trying to find the fish.  I caught five largemouth bass, then found the peacock bass in a spot where I caught them last year.  They didn’t seem to wake up until around 8:30 in the morning.  I caught 9 peacock bass on the new MHX high modulus rod I just built to use with 4lb test.  All were caught on some jigs I tied up on Monday and Tuesday before heading to Miami.  And the largest ...

  • Blowsy Kind of Day - 02/11/2015 by John Dobbins Preachers/Wabasso/Johns IslandInshoreJust a bit windy today, but the wind is your friend. First run was North to Preachers, little brisk running into the wind. The grass in Preachers looks like it is starting to comeback. Nothing happening, just a couple of bumps. next stop the islands South of the causeway. 3 short trout and blew out the electric motor. Now I have 4 dead electrics on the garage floor. Got almost 15 months out of this one. Change of plans for the day, fish areas where I can use the wind. Next stop the islands behind Johns Island. Just have to pole a little. Nice Red came out to look and swam off. Two more did ...
