Guide Story - Capt. Jason Gabriel

What we basically did this trip is what we call running and gunning. We ran offshore looking for birds. Looking for weed lines. We'd find a school on the troll, get them to eat the troll baits and then we'd switch over to the light spinners with chunks and live bait. We'd bring them up behind the boat, and keep them interested by chumming them. My wife has a chum bag in the water and keeps them going, keeps them eating, keeps them happy.

Guide Story - Old Florida Angling

There are few fish that can run drag like a bull redfish, jump like a tarpon, and find structure to cut you off on like a bonefish; and while Florida is known to have all three of the aforementioned species, it also is home to one species in particular that carries all three of these characteristics. Snook are well known for their ability to rock ya on a dock, spit a hook back in your eye, and send anglers home cursing like a fisherman…which if you didn’t know, is far worse than the mouth of a sailor.
