"Picking out the signs"
Knowing how to "read" the water and pick out fishy signs is a learned art that is huge in catching more fish. The untrained eye looks at the picture as just some water and sky. The trained eye picks out the large school of mullet cruising the top of the wave...about to be blown up on by a hungry tarpon!
"Soap box time..."
As South Florida continues to fill up with people fishing spots are becoming more and more limited. Compounding the problem is a total disregard of decency by many anglers for the few spots left.
As I walked over a local bridge to check out a snook spot last night; I was disgusted to see a dead bluefish, numerous mullet, lure packages, soda bottles, broken bottles, and other trash laying all over a sidewalk that had JUST been cleaned by city workers.
People wonder why we are running out of fishing spots...it isn't too hard to figure out when you look around at the few spots we have left. Time to clean things up before it's too late!
“Everyone should believe in something; I believe I’ll go fishing.” –Henry David Thoreau
When fishing dark tannic stained water few colors perform as well as Mirrolure's 808 (Black Back/Orange Side and belly). Available in similar patterns from other lure companies, "808" is deadly on snook and tarpon in tannic water situations.
