I know I made a fishing thread once, but I can't find it! Anyways, I know there's some fisherman here on BYC. I mostly bass fish here in Central FL, but nothing beats heading down to the Florida coast for some surf and brackish river fishing. (Mosquito lagoon specifically) Biggest largemouth to date is about 10 pounds, and this year has started off good. I still need a new fishing spot, since without a boat I'm stuck with small bodies of water, all these pubic lakes and ponds I fish have so much pressure from anglers that anything over 3 pounds rarely bites. Bass are in post spawn and pre spawn this time of year, it's pretty mixed up in Florida. Since they are finicky this time of year, most luck has come off a 1/4 black/blue bleeding jig from strike king, and a yum chunk in matching colors for a trailer. Gotta work it sslllowww...which is painful, I'm use to fishing aggressive jerkbaits and spinners. Like every year, the family and I will be heading down to New Smyrna beach for a one week fishing/relaxation trip. We only go once a year, so I spend 80% of my time fishing on the boat docks and down at the surf, whether the fish bite or not. Last year I nailed an 80 pound shark off the beach, on a teeny tiny sand flea! I knew they were out there but this teenage kid pulling in a nearly 5 foot shark drew some attention. Took me a good 40 minutes to reel it in, since I was fishing with pompano gear. Looking to do a little more surf fishing this year, but of course the trout fishing down at the docks is always great. The mangrove snapper really hit it off last year too, and they tasted great!
