Targeting Cobia In The East Central Region With Capt. Jim Ross

April is usually a little late for the cobia run in my region, but over the last couple of years we’ve had warm winters, which means the cobia action has been late and ran well into the month. This year is setting up to be exactly like last year, so I expect April to be an outstanding time to chase cobia in my region.

How To Choose A Fishing Guide With Capt. Geoff Page

Not all fishermen are created equal, and the same goes for fishing guides. Some are better than others, and many of them have a specialty species they understand better or have more success when targeting, so you want to find the best guide you can for the species you want to target.

Targeting Bass In The East Central Region With Capt. Jim Ross

Florida is a unique state when it comes to bass fishing, because our lakes for the most part are shaped like a shallow bowl, with very few having super deep holes and ledges. The exception in my region are the lakes in the Harris Chain of Lakes, which have freshwater springs that are deep and push in water at a constant temperature of 72 degrees, making them a gathering point for fish in the cooler winter periods.

Targeting Bonefish in the Southeast Region With Capt. Jimbo Thomas

Captain Jimbo ThomasOne of the most popular inshore gamefish in my region is the bonefish, and we’ve got some of the largest bonefish you will find in North America here in the Southeast Region of Florida. The flats of Biscayne Bay from Key Biscayne all the way south to Angelfish Creek hold bonefish of all sides on both the inside and outside flats.

Targeting Piers and Jetties In The Central West Region With Capt. Geoff Page

 

We have the longest fishing pier in the state with the old Sunshine Skyway Bridge that’s now been turned into a fishing pier across Tampa Bay. The Skyway Bridge stretches from Manatee County to Pinellas County and you can fish either the north or south span. The Skyway Pier produces everything from mangrove snapper to king mackerel, cobia, tarpon, grouper and sharks. It’s really a remarkable place to fish from shore.

Targeting Snook In The East Region With Capt. Mike Holliday

The fall harvest of snook opens on September 1 across Florida, and anglers are looking to catch a fish for the table after a three month closure. In many areas of the state, the fish are still spawning, so they’re schooled up in the inlets and passes or along the beaches. By late August, the fall mullet run will be starting to kick in along the beaches of the East Region, and the snook will be shifting their focus from the herring species like threadfins and pilchards to mullet of all sizes.
