Little update, went to the keys this past Sunday and fished off one of the bridges down there. Air temps were in the low 70’s with wind in my face making it a bit tough on the cast but managed, had 3 runoffs during the day on a crab and could not for the life of me set the circle hook ? Felt the fish on as I reeled in but after a short fight all 3 times whatever I had on got off. Fourth time the charm thinking I had a permit or tarpon I finally hooked something on the crab that ended up being a bonnethead shark. Oh well, moved on to the other side of the bridge so the wind wasn’t in my face as much, and started having non stop action on shrimp from Spanish Mackeral to my limit of keeper fat mangrove snappers, grunts, yellowtails, about 8 gag groupers that were like 12in long lol great day despite the wind, no chum and missing fish on my bigger rods with expensive crabs lol.
Also went to a local spot a few days ago where previously I had seen some big spadefish circling the pilings figured I would give them a shot. Bought some frozen clams and started chumming right by the piling that they kept swimming around dropped my red 1/8th jig head with a strip of the clams foot on it and not even a tap from them tried little pieces of shrimp and not a single tap. I could see them just circling the pilings with not a care in the world for either baits kind of frustrating watching them there just looking at your bait. If anyone has a general idea on where to go without a boat for sheepshead and spades in broward county please let me know would love to scratch these 2 fish species off my bucket list to catch. Not looking to spot steal just some general info on where to target them in this area. Feel free to pm me if possible
Some of the catches
Good job on the cero! It might of just been puffers picking up your crabs.
Thanks completely forgot that the Cero has the lines across and the Spanish have only spots. Darn it could of done sashimi lol. Don’t think it was puffers as my clicker went off like a rocket plus the weight of the fish felt like something of size. But who knows could of been another shark.
