Winter land based fishing

Postby self amused » Sat Dec 31, 2016 11:47 pm

I know that the best way to find out how to catch certain species is by trial and error but all land based dishing I've done has been for snook and tarpon during the summer months and mullet run. So I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction in terms of pompano, sheepshead and any other good tasting inshore species and where I can find them and how to target them. Any information would help so thanks in advance. I'm located in boca but any area in south Florida would help (I don't mean spots I'm just talking generalized area)

Wherever you decide to fish, just find the oldest local bait store in the area. Ask them where the action is and what you have to buy from them to get into the game. Amazing the Intel people are willing to share with Mr. Green. Crew at Juno Bait are top shelf.

you can find big sheepshead on the sea walls of the intercoastal. maybe use fiddler crabs or barnacles.

go to a pier or surf fish early morning for pompano and use fleas

My girlfriends daughter is renting a home on the inter-coastal just north of Hugh Taylor Park by about 1/4 mile - The grand-kids (5&9) are coming and I thought it would be a great thing to try some fishing, crabbing, shrimping with them but I know zero about this type of fishing - I do off the beach with my kayak for all kinds of fish but never here - they will be here in March for school break - any and all help is welcome

Thanks in advance guys & girls

well I know that the intercoastal of this area has a nice amount of blue crabs in those waters. Take your shot at them with chicken drums or ham hocks (tied extremely well) on a line. once you see the line has tension pull it in at a nice steady pace and scoop em up with your net. You can tell if its a crab because you can feel it pulling back and moving around. As for fish, there may not be much maybe some jack crevalle, stingray, snook, or occasional mangrove snapper moving through but generally speaking theres not much. hope this helped, GOODLUCK ! :thumleft:
