Florida “crabby” Sheepshead Action.

Posted on December 13th, 2018

Late fall and winter is one of the best times to target Sheepshead in southwest Florida waters. Many Canadians spending a holiday in Florida and packing a fishing rod can buy live shrimp and use small hooks and some split-shot sinkers to catch these fun and tasty fish right off bridges and piers.

My favorite bait for these fish are small fiddler crabs fished on a #6 light-wire hook and fished as close as you can to a barnacle-studded piling when the tide is moving slower. Sheepshead have a very toothy-mouth and hard crushers on the upper and lower jaw which doesn’t leave many areas to hook them up.

Once you do hook a sheepshead you have to get them away from the piles as fast as you can or odds are good that your line will get cut. Not only are these fish plentiful through the winter and great fun, they are delicious grilled or deep-fried!

Florida Spotted Sea Trout action.

Posted on December 11th, 2018

I have been enjoying spending most of Nov. and now Dec. fishing the shallow southwest Florida saltwater flats for a variety of fish. One of my favorite is the Spotted Sea Trout that can be caught by anglers just wading off the beaches and shorelines and fishing live shrimp or a variety of shallow artificial lures on the plentiful inter-coastal grass flats.

This late fall temps have been colder than usual with stronger northerly winds that has made for a magnified low tide. We have been targeting slightly deeper flats and fishing soft-plastic paddle-tail swim baits just under the surface.

The key is to locate a school of feeding fish when the tide is moving and fishing minnow imitating grubs quickly just below the surface.

One of the best ways to catch sea trout is by jigging and swimming a Lunker City Shaker grub on a 1/4 oz. jighead.
