Florida beach Bluefish.

Posted on January 12th, 2017

We make the most of it when we are in southwest Florida, whether it’s fishing, socializing with our US friends, having friends and people I work with come down to fish and especially when our family is down with our grand-kids.

Most winters Bluefish run off the beaches on Florida’s Gulf coast as they feed very heavily on baitfish that move in and out of the passes. This is when beach-anglers can cast spoons and use live baitfish to catch them literally a few feet off-shore. Recently we were having “beach-time” with the grand-kids and took advantage of catching these feisty fish in 3-4′ of  water right off the beach. If you are planning a Florida vacation this winter and you are packing a rod, make sure to take some 1/4 oz. spoons in addition to your favorite plugs and terminal live bait tackle. You can catch Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish just casting spoons right off the beach, piers, outlets and jetties.
