  1. September has arrived and the mullet run will soon begin in the palm beaches. The bite has been great but soon the mullet show will begin. The snook bite has been great along beaches and and in the inlets. Rapala twitchin mullet and DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail have been the go to baits for artificial. Live baits also work for snook. The snook have been ranging in size form 3 to 25 pounds. Tarpon are abundant giving anglers plenty of rod bending action. The tarpon have been talking live baits and DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail. Schooling tarpon can bee seem along the beaches offering great sight fishing for anglers. For those looking for a variety of species to target, sharks, jacks, snapper, lady fish, drum and many others are abundant. Channel edges, docks and mangrove shorelines all great areas to locate species. Peacock bass fishing has been on fire, schooling peas are striking fast moving lures like Rapala twitch baits and DOA C.A.L. Curl tail. Peacock bass can be sight fished near banks and under docks. Anglers sing light tackle and fly gear can expect a great fish with many of the peacock bass ranging in size form 1 to 6 pounds. Well that is the fishing report for the past week. Hope you all enjoyed remember you can’t catch them from the the couch. So get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines!

  2. August is just Plain Hot! Perfect for half and ¾ day runs to beat the heat and beat the storms. Most of our trips this time of year are 6 or 8 hours which allow us bottom fish for a few hours for your snapper and grouper species and finish off with amberjacks since the opener is August 1. Recently we had the Shelton crew aboard The Just Kickin Back, for a Half Day 6 Hour. Plan was to meet at the dock at 8 and push out. The crew being on vacation from Tennessee wanted some meat to take home and to get something pulling some drag. We started the trip in 40’ catching bait this time of the year is easy mark them on shallow hard bottom and use a sabiki rig tipped with squid . Second Stop was 75’ fishing hard bottom. With the crew Using Florida Fishing Products Osprey 4000 reels using a knocker rig with one ounce weight, 25lb test fluorocarbon and a #2 circle, Were pulling up Lane Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Key West Grunts and Porgys faster than I could keep Up. After a solid box we moved off a little deeper to some hard bottom in 80’ looking for some grouper, Seemed that day every Red Grouper was 19 7/8” but we managed to pull and few keepers out along with some more snapper. Since the chores were done and we had meat for the freezer, we moved to a set of ledges in 85’ that hold some smaller Aj’s in the 30-45” range. Once we anchored and started chumming live white bait behind the boat. It didn’t take long at all for the Aj’s to surface and pop at baits on the surface. When setting up to fish like this I like using my 8’ star rods matched with Fin Nor 7500 Offshore Series rods Spooled with braid. Tie the knot of your choice from braid to 40-60lb fluorocarbon ending with a ½ oz jig head. I don’t really care about the weight as much as I care about the hook Strength as you never really know whats going to eat your bait in the chum, be prepared for a cobia, grouper, or tuna. Free line a live pinfish down into the school of jacks and hold on! They wont pass up a pinfish most days. Federal Amberjack Season is a Tricky one never knowing when they will open or close the season. Seems like its something they are still trying to figure out. Book sooner than later is you want to get out and catch some of these fish for the grill.

  4. Going to visit the area of St. Pete Fl. Would love any tips or areas to take a swing by to hopefully catch something memorable. Thanks!!
  5. I am finishing a bare 22 panga hull i purchased new from Panga Marine in Sarasota and would like to fish near my home in Clearwater. I like to catch founder, grouper, snapper (really anything that tastes great). I expect to launch the boat in late January or February. I have a Furuno GPS/Chartplotter and would like to buy the numbers for known public fishing spots to help me get around initially. Does anyone know a good ramp that would be close to Hurricane Pass? THANKS
  6. Been a while since I've posted. In between boats and houses for a few months. Back in the game and took Monday and Tuesday off work to break in the new Key West 1720!! Monday me and my brother in law ran a few miles out of Clearwater to some hard bottom and loaded the cooler with Key West Grunts!! Then hit a little structure on the inshore areas for a nice group of Mangrove Snapper!! Under the Mangroves are about 20 Grunts: ​ Dinner last night: ​ Went out again today for an inshore cruise with my wife for my Birthday. She let me make a pit stop and we added 8 more Mangroves to the fresh fish quota for the week!! ​ ​ Mangroves were all caught near inshore rock piles and structure. Regular live shrimp for bait. Action was non stop! Tight lines everyone!!

  8. Hello TOF Crew, Just got this offshore report from Marc Bonnano " Tough day today, got 5 keeper reds, lots of short reds, remora, snake fish and grunts all with the big jig... Multiple red grouper all on nekid balls... They rock!." Marc Jay Lehman - "Most amazingly productive artificial lure I've ever used." Congrats to Marc Bonnano & Crew for scoring some Big RG's. Nothing Better than "Fishing Nekid !" Cheers TK
  9. After moving last week to ruskin I was able to get out on the water with a friend from work. We targeted snapper before the winds picked up and got on some fish but not like the ones from last week. But free lining them is always fun in my book. In this video I am going to share a couple of techniques that I have learned over the years. We started off with the snapper and explaining the free lining technique and then headed inshore and let you know what I like to look for when it comes to fishing mangrove islands for reds and snook. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making the video!
