A Whole Different Animal - Wild Cats that Got the Cream

MOST ANGLERS HAVE STRONG BELIEFS ABOUT WHAT HULL TYPE IS BEST. Running hard in rough water requires a seaworthy platform with the strength and stability to keep you safe, comfortable and dry. Among the different trends that have consequently become evident from the evolution of center consoles, boat builders are cornering a new niche of complex and competitive catamarans harnessing more outboard power than ever before. Breaking the barrier with innovative hull designs and deck layouts, the newest catamarans offer unobstructed fishability while providing increased fuel economy and speed per applied horsepower.

Secrets Of Sargassum

EXCLUDING FRAGILE CORAL REEFS, aging shipwrecks and massive seamounts, the ocean is a rather featureless expanse. Off the coast of Florida and across much of the tropics, fish migrations are largely dictated by prevailing currents. Caught in the same gyres, floating ecosystems of sargassum seaweed are the basis of life that provide structure and sanctuary for a host of predators and prey.

Full Steam Ahead

I RELOCATED TO FLORIDA FROM MARYLAND about a year ago and cherish the year-round opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Although I have fallen in love with saltwater fishing, I miss crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay.

Mesh Network

REMAINING RATHER UNCHANGED for thousands of years, cast nets appear to be simple tools. Toss atop a school of baitfish and haul in your bounty. However, cast nets are available in a variety of sizes and styles comprising minute differences to suit a host of species and water conditions. Delivery is important, but it is the sewing of panels, lead line weight and mesh size that determines a net’s performance.

WHILE IT’S TRUE THAT SOME PEOPLE DREAD visits from out-of-town family, every winter my wife and I look forward to hosting my sister and her husband for a long weekend in South Florida. To be honest, I don’t care for the fancy restaurants and $20 cocktails that end up in our plans when we all get together, but my annual fishing trips with Ron are always enjoyable.

Double Stack

INNOVATIVE ANGLERS HAVE DEVELOPED several tactics and techniques to effectively present offerings deep below the surface. Popular options include planers and trolling weights. However, these devices come with a bit of guesswork in regard to their exact depth of deployment. Downriggers are much more accurate and also provide anglers with the opportunity to fish with lighter outfits.

Beacons Of Bait

BAIT FISHING IS JUST THAT. Even for the most experienced anglers, climbing the food chain can be challenging. It seems absurd, but it is truthfully harder to pattern sardines than it is to catch sailfish. Fortunately, making bait can be simplified by understanding how various forage species relate to their surroundings.
