Fishin you a Merry Christmas 2017

Well it is a South west Florida Fishmas. Yes indeed. Not all of us have family here and fishing is a great way to enjoy the wonders of being outside and a part of the amazing weather that Florida is famous for. It is not a winter wonderland but it is a fisher-mans paradise. and If you do have family here it makes it even better. Red fish are starting to appear along the flats just south of Ponce and in even better number in front of Bull and Turtle bay.
Some of the best fishing can be found out at the Placida Trestle and along the ICW.
Trout fishing in Lemon bay is very good right now. Scattered bits of red tide around the area. But no real problems.
Triple tail in the near gulf are thicker in numbers and larger in size than we have seen over the last few years.

Anyway From me Fishin Frank and the Pirate crew of bait bandits
We hope you have a safe and fun Christmas Day.

Red fish and Tarpon are the two fish that I would target and the west side is where I would head, The Red fish are holding under the mangroves wherever there is a slightly deeper pocket and they seem to be in groups of 3 to 6 fish. Shrimp with a Rock port head or just free lined,
and the Tarpon are just out from the mangroves or could be on top of the bar.
Plenty to keep you busy but you might have to look a bit, But find them you will or they will find you.

Contest win drunk baits 09/20/17

CONTEST win a bag

Ok send you answer to

What country are the plastic baits from?

the first 10 people to E-mail me {not message} [not reply on F.B. ]

Drunk baits we have been testing and carry a full line of colors, I met the owner in the Shop and we have become friends.
The baits are excellent on Large Mouth bass if you are looking for a bass lure this is it!

In Salt or brackish water they are doing very well, mostly Trout, lady fish, and Mackerel, But a couple Snook have been caught and a Bonnet shark on them.

best way to rig is with a narrow head, jig head the smaller the head is the more extra wiggle you get from the popper style head and the tail is very active
all in all a very good addition to your tackle.
