Blue Fish

Blue fish arent that good for eating. They are just a fun fight and make good bait. Some people eat them long as it is the day you catch it and you bleed it out good it can be done. I rather just keep them for the sharks. Many people don't know but blue fish have size regulations and bag limits. Mak...

Depending on where you are fishing dictates how you should fish. With that being said these tricks work good at where we fish.

Posted On : 2021-Mar-01

Vampires are real when it comes to being a small pin fish. The vampire they fear is a speckled sea trout. These predators are the real deal boogy-man to a small bait fish. They love canals, grassy beds, and green dock lights. You can usually find them if you just watch the water they will smack the ...

Black tip sharks are very abundant in our areas at certain times of the year. We sometimes catch 10+ of them in one night : making for lots of fun on spinning gear. This is my true past time where it all started. I never jumped right into big reels fishing for the biggest fish I can find. I...

Rocky (left side of photo with arm tattoo) was such a awesome character I wish everyone had the chance to fish with him once. A outgoing personality that enjoyed being outside on the water. If he could live on his boat full time he would without hesitation. Me and Rocky would go 30 to 70 m...

"Going For A Bait Run"

by: #TeamDorsal

Posted On : 2021-Mar-01

Bait is something we all need when shark fishing. You can buy all the fancy gear you want, but without bait you can't fish. Some people go to local tackle stores and buy bonitas for shark bait. Nothing wrong with that, but we enjoy going on our bait runs. It is a pass time that we enjoy doing to...

  Our winter months are some of the best fishing. Us locals get the moment to reclaim our beaches and not be harassed by tourist. We get to shark fish at day instead of night because nobody is swimming. It is my favorite time of the year. Winter months can also be very rewarding with large...

Florida Beach Nurse

Nurse sharks can actually get pretty big in size. They don't fight that much when reeling them in but to see one and touch it is a different feeling. They don't have the typical skin of most sharks they feel more like a leather. Some say nurse shark is very delicious and one of the best tasting shar...

Thump thump..... Thump thump.... If you have ever caught a large drum you know the sound. The beat of a drum is such a awesome thing to hear. The largest the fish the deeper the sound. Large black drums can have the coolest drum beat around. Capable of hearing it from many yards away. A remarka...

Large bull sharks are one of the most territorial species out there. They have been known to attack kayaks while a person was paddling out a deep drop.

Parents don't frame pictures of their kids playing video games. Go Fishing! Raise them on the water with a fishing pole, not in a house on a gaming console. When the beach is choppy and nasty we like to go inshore wade fishing. We tend to go about hour and a half before sunset. Pe...

We hit the sand around 5pm that day. The wind blowing south made chop but not bad and just enough movement to stir the water up. Clarity was murky exactly how a big predator likes it to be. These are the conditions we look for when catching massive fish. To catch these smart creatures ...
