Holy Flounder Attack!

Just wait until you see some of the strikes this flounder/fluke angler John Skinner caught on film!

It sucked me right in after the first hit at the 35-second mark.

If you like catching flounder, the intel in this video is priceless (to help you understand just how aggressive these fish are).

This epic underwater footage of flounder fishing with bucktail jigs was captured in 25 ft, which makes this video even more impressive.

In addition to the bucktail jigs, a 2nd bait used was a jighead with a Berkley Gulp on it, so make sure to stick around for the full video.

You can definitely learn a lot about flounder behavior and how they eat by watching this awesome flounder footage.

Enjoy the video, and great job John!

Let us know when you have more underwater footage like this.

Note: All footage in this video was done in Long Island Sound.

Slob.

Lunker.

Mogan.

Beast.

Pig.

No matter what you call it, landing a 40+ inch snook is something special…

And it’s a fish that drives many inshore anglers crazy.

Why?

Let’s just say there is a reason a snook reaches 40+ inches…

It’s been able to outsmart, outswim, and survive many years of anglers throwing plugs, live bait, and flies in its face.

Not to mention, avoid being eaten by sharks and dolphin…

So it’s no easy feat to get one of these monsters to inhale your lure or topwater plug.

Just ask Capt. Archie Hager…

He’s been down near Boca Grande chasing slobs for years.

Wait until you see the video he, Jeff Thompson, and Mac Hoover put together.

Snook STRONG!

Enjoy and well-done gents.

So what’s your biggest snook?

Well, here’s some proof that it doesn’t need to be warm in order to land a slob snook on a topwater lure…

In fact, it was sub-60 degrees according to angler Lawson Lindsey who caught this really nice snook on a topwater red/white Heddon Spook.

Watch as Lawson stays perfectly calm after a few missed strikes and sets the hook once he feels the fish on.

Well done man!

The biggest mistake many anglers make in a situation like this is trying to set the hook during one of those misses.

This will make any fisherman want to throw on a topwater and go after some lunker linesiders.

Enjoy and Fish On!

Even though Florida and Louisana get most of the credit for the best redfish states in the south, don’t forget that Texas has its fair share of red drum.

To me, watching a tailing redfish never gets old.

It’s up there with watching a good campfire.

Check out this awesome tailing footage that angler Will Myers captured on film.

All of it occurred on mid-coast Texas flats.

Enjoy!

Holy Redfish Fillets!

I’ve seen some anglers clean a redfish pretty quickly, but this guy takes it to a whole new level.

Keep in mind these aren’t small redfish either. These are bull reds.

Now before you get your waders in a wad, remember that Louisiana anglers are allowed to keep bull redfish up to a certain amount (what we refer to as “over slot redfish” here in Florida).

And this is what a Louisiana redfish cleaning facility looks like.

Note: this is also was a razor sharp knife looks like! Wow.

Clearly, this fisherman has been cleaning these bull redfish for quite some time as he literally fillets both sides in less than 20 seconds (and from the look of his cuts, he is getting the majority of the meat).

Ever seen anyone clean a redfish quicker?

Let us know in the comments.

Enjoy.

First of all, huge thanks to our friend “LifesaBeach” for sharing this with us on Twitter.

Secondly, the pictures below might be too graphic for any of you that can’t stand seeing one of the many dark sides of nature…(warning disclaimer)

If you are still with me, what we have here is a redfish (known to be opportunistic eaters) that made the mistake of trying to eat a turtle a little too big for his mouth…

According to user “23Sailfish” on the Charleston Fishing Forum that stumbled upon this redfish laying belly up in the water:

“This 32” redfish had eyes bigger than his stomach. He had tried to take on this large turtle and it was all over from there. The turtle was about 10″ long from tail to head and when the redfish tried to consume him, the backside of the shell got stuck in those few little upper teeth that redfish have and the turtle got stuck. The redfish choked to death on his last meal that he never got to enjoy.”

Well, unfortunately, this redfish that attempted to eat a turtle didn’t end well for either of them. We hate seeing two beautiful animals die, but we also remind ourselves that this is just part of everyday nature.

However, unlike humans, I doubt any redfish learned from this mistake…

Here’s some proof that even the jungle snook of Panama can’t resist a bucktail jig!

Check out this cool footage from angler “Sam the Man” while fishing for Snook up a Jungle River on the Caribbean side of Panama.

I’m curious to how deep the water was. It looked like the snook went down quite a bit, but then again the water was jungle dirty!

Either way, this video is just one more reason to head to Panama.

Enjoy.

Poppers and Pumpkins…

Doesn’t get much better than this.

Check out the hungry school of redfish these guys came across in the Gulf of Mexico.

Jordan Whiteman and his buddies had a blast catching these as the redfish were fighting for a chance to grab their poppers.

Well done gents.

Enjoy.

Ever caught a leopard redfish before?

Chances are good that most us of haven’t.

Well, this week Capt. Eddie Berthelot Jr. of Golden Meadow, Louisiana had the catch of his life!

A very rare “Leopard Redfish.”

As you can imagine, an inshore fishing captain in Louisiana like Capt. Eddie has caught a ton of redfish in his life.

But never anything like this.

In fact, he had this to say in his recent interview to the Louisiana Sportsman:

“When I set the hook on him, he jumped about halfway out the water and I almost threw up because I was so excited,” said Berthelot, who operates Spots and Specks Charters. “I’ve been waiting for a good redfish mount forever, and when I set the hook I knew it was a mount — that’s how much of his body came out the water.”

After landing the leopard red and taking it in for taxidermy, they took the time to count all of the spots.

  • 342 on one side
  • 328 on the other side
  • For a combined spot count of 670 redfish spots!

Enough to win any redfish spot tournament in the country!

Awesome catch!

Notes from the captain:

  1. The fish was caught using live cocahoe minnow on a Kahle hook under a popping cork.
  2. He was fishing in less than 3 feet of water
  3. The temp was around 40 degrees
  4. The leopard red came in at 28.5 inches long
  5. Estimated 9 pounds
