  1. Hey hows everyone doing? just stoping by to check in. Im from Belmar NJ a little beach town on the east coast up north, spent a better part of youth chasing down seagulls in the hunt for real striped bass and bluefish but life happened and havent fished in a few years untill this whole lockdown thing. So as far as fishing in Florida im looking to gain as much knowledge as possible. Up north fishing is honestly much more simple than down here, sure anyone can catch a fish with a sinker, a hook and some bait but thats boring to me. Im used to surf fishing with large plugs/ stick baits and jigs for 2 of the 6 possible fish you might actually want to take from fresh water. Here in florida their are so manny different species and finesse tactics im not used to. Recently I've been fishing the hilsborough river (right by hillsborough ave) because I live quite close to it, weve only pulled out gafttopsail and hardhead catfish regaurdless of what we used as bait(castnetting for shiners or whatever little bait fish are around, squid, gulp products and lots of artificials.) Every night Im out I see these juvenile tarpon but cant get them to hit anything its killing me. I've also tried platt street bridge tons of activity there just no luck and courtney cambel causeway by the first bridge past the boat ramp(snagged a snapper accidentally while fishing a DOA swim bait. ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED. I havent fished for 5-6 years and literally in the past month Ive fished 4 times a week with little results so im looking to change that through hard work and research on here.

  4. Hello TOF Crew, Glow Tail Snapper Field Test Results Want to personally thank Dylan Hubbard and the entire Hubbard's Marina family for the chance to test our new glow tails in Florida's cool summer darkness. I was joined by NBJ Pro-Team Member John Masters. Capt. Garrett & his knowledgeable and friendly crew put us on some nice shows of fish, time to have some fun. Had the pleasure of meeting and fishing with Marc Bonanno. He has had some seriously good luck fishing NBJ. The glow tails charged quickly and illuminated the dark, so down they went. It wasn't long before the fish started coming over the rails. . Scored several undersized Red Grouper including one that Shattered my previous record. This RG stretched the tape out to 3-1/2 inches and almost covered the entire length of my palm. Landed some very nice sized Grunts & Porgies plus Scamp & Lane Snappers. The rest of boat were landing some keeper sized Gags that were quickly released, see you soon. Some very nice sized Mangrove Snapper were also thrown in for good measure. It was cool watching Dylan fish, every time I turned around he was putting the boots to another one with his 2 speed. Never says anything, all you hear is the sound of fish meat hitting the deck and then see the crew adding another one to his stringer. Our fishing partner Marc Bonanno scored the Big Daddy Mango with his late scoring & Prize Winning Mangrove Snapper. Congrats Marc. We had a great time with great people. Made some new friends and got to test the new glow tails. We have more field tests to follow and if your interested I will continue to post our results for all to see. Thanks, Dylan & Mark Hubbard, Capt. Garrett & Crew, Marc, John and Team Hubbard's. Cheers TK
  5. Nekid Ball Jigz Pro-Team Offshore Report - John Masters "Went out of Miami and headed North towards Ft. Lauderdale trolling around 15 miles offshore looking for Mahi-Mahi. At around 8am three rods went off. One was a miss, the second was a Cow, Dave quickly brought her in. The third rod I grabbed was a 39lb Bull. As I was fighting the bull I see a peanut jumping over and around my line. Start thinking to myself.... If that little $%^#$ cuts me off I'm gonna explode. About this time I see Dave is using my Redbone rod and there was an NBJ tied to it. Woooo Hoooo Fish On! Watched the Dolphin jumping over and over, figured it weighed about 15lbs The fight didn't last too long on the 10lb test, it went into overdrive and is now swimming free with a Polar White/Crystal Flash Lip Ring. Dave quickly grabs another rod rigged with a 1/4oz Polar White/Crystal flash, it only took a few seconds in the water before the line starts ripping off the spool, only to end in a quick break off. Maybe there was still some nicked line that was higher up the leader that got missed getting trimmed off, Always check the full length of the leader and the last few yards of your main line. Looked like the biggest fish of the day. Now that we have the Big Bull in the boat. We re-rig and begin trolling again. After about 10 mins, we spot 5 Frigate birds circling and diving, so we head that way and all four rods go off. We were in a LARGE school. I quickly land my fish so I can grab an NBJ rod. This time the rods have on 1/2oz Hot Pink/Orange Shrimp. There are still two fish being fought on the stern, so I chooseto go amidships and drop it strait down. It didn't get 10 feet below the boat before it was engulfed by another 15lber,and then a second one on the next drop. After the fish were landed, we drifted for a few minutes so we could re-rig, I made another cast out and caught another just short dolphin. Back she goes! After the guys finished rigging, we trolled for about another half hour and filled our limit. Then it was time to go home, wash the boat, clean the fish, take a shower and Pass Out." JM Great Report John Cheers TK
  6. Hello TOF Friends, Wanted to share this mornings adventure with you, got out on the water this morning around 6:30 just as the tide began to push in. Joining me was my good friend and NBJ Pro-Team member Bryan Holton.he is an 8th generation Floridian and as today would prove a great choice for a partner, We got set up along one of our favorite St Joe Sound beaches and began riding the drift parallel to the beach. Throwing 1/4oz Hot Pink, Chartreuse Yellow & Polar White NBJ's, it wasn't long before I had the first strike when a jumbo ladyfish greeted us with several big jumps and then off she goes. It was Bryan's turn next, and again and again, well you get the point. He was on a roll, species after species came over the rail as he put on a beach clinic. It was fun seeing him hook up one after another and the best part was we were just getting started. Every time we reset to begin the drift again, Bryan was on them...Pompano, Trout, Jacks, Whiting, Silvers, Ladies and even a remora joined the parade. Bryan has been a Major supporter of NBJ from the very beginning and with his help and Jeannie's, I have been able to take Nekid Ball Jigz from out of the garage to around the country. Thanks Bryan & Jeannie, Cheers, TK

  11. Hey, I've lived in Florida my whole life, and have always loved fishing. However, no one would ever take me growing up. So know that I'm 17 and got a truck and kayak; I'm ready to go. I live in St. Petersburg and would love any help/tips. I will mostly be fishing flats from my kayak or wading from shore. I really want some redfish, pompono, flounder, mackeral, or snook. Need help with locations and bait. I've also saved some money and now I need help picking a rod and reel combo. Thanks, -Carley
