Tarpon fishing in the ocean, looking for them on bait pods, shrimp boat bycatch, or free roaming around lively areas. When you finally see a few big girls up and feeding within casting range, that "it's about to happen" feeling is as exciting as anything I've experienced in the outdoors.

Being north of Marathon. Good chum slick going, mangos steady coming over the rail. Wife and kids having fun. I have caught 24” trout, red grouper, sharks, you never know whats coming up in the slick.
I like any fishing but chasing rays for cobia and scalloping is tops.
I like throwing artificial lures for reds, speckle trout, and hooking up on a snook or tarpon like I did on October last year! I have not found a type of saltwater fishing I do not like. I would like to learn some nearshore fishing techniques, maybe for kings near the beach. I have not fished in the ocean in Jacksonville yet. Always learning.
I like all kinds of fishing, and my favorite is what ever is biting that time of year. I will say the two types I dislike are slow trolling the beach for kings, and running the beach for cobia. I've had plenty of success doing both, but I like to have a rod in my hand, and be actively fishing. Too much down time w/ those two.
Two favorites for me are tournament redfishing (nothing can make me lose sleep the night before than a tournament) and offshore bottom fishing. But, truth be told, I would literally fish anywhere and for anything. I often wondered what I would do if I lived somewhere really cold or with few water sources...
