Florida Spanish Mackerel action on Blue Fox Stipple Spoons.

Posted on December 4th, 2014

italo_mackerelWe are taking advantage of the excellent southwest Florida weather and fishing every day for a variety of saltwater fish species. Yesterday we started by targeting Spanish mackerel by casting Blue Fox Stipple Spoons over the flats in Lemon Bay, Fl and hooked lot’s of fish. The Rapala Shift freshwater outfits perform well fishing for shallow-water, saltwater fish, especially loaded with Sufix 832 braided line which really helps to cast far, feel all hits and get excellent hook-sets!

pat_mackerelWe were able to locate the mackerel by trolling our spoons at 4-5 mph, and once located we would stop the boat, lower the Minn Kota Talon and cast to feeding fish.

stipple_spoon_mackerelThe Blue Fox Stipple Spoon casts well, is almost the same size as many of the saltwater baitfish like pilchards and has an excellent flash/wobble action that mackerel can’t resist!

ladyfishAnother fish that feeds in schools, loves to strike spoons and fights like a miniature tarpon is the ladyfish which are abundant on the shallow-water flats. We caught our share of those as well while targeting Spanish Mackerel.

gruntWe also took a run out in the Gulf of Mexico to check-out one of the reefs to see if some of the bluefish had migrated down the coast. No bluefish, but we did catch some nice-size, eating grunts!

Back on the water this am and hoping to catch a mix of tasty saltwater fish.
