    Palm Beach and Jupiter Saltwater and Freshwater report PhlatsInshorefishing 02/19/20 05:30 PM
    The inshore fishing this past week has been fantastic, great top water bite for Snook and Tarpon. The weather has been great and south Florida lots of sunshine few days a light rain but typical fun in the Sun.

    The snook fishing has been fantastic around docks, Sewalls, and mangroves shorelines. Snook have been striking Rapala skitter walks, making for great explosive top water action strikes. The bigger snook have been lurking in the shallows while docks have been holding schools of snook making for great rod bending action.

    The tarpon bite has been great on the first of the incoming and last of the outgoing tide in backwater bays and canals. The tarpon can be seen rolling on the surface, DOA BaitBuster and live mullet have worked great creating strikes. The deeper canals and passes have been holding the bigger Tarpon the bite should get better and better as the warm weather continues.

    The grass flats have been holding plenty of croaker, drum, jacks, blue fish, ladyfish and many other species to get the rod bent. These areas are great to take kids and novice anglers to get them warmed up for the highly prized game fish.

    The freshwater action has been great for sunshine bass, peacock bass, largemouth bass, and clown knife fish. The channel edges, docks, bridges, and seawalls all great areas to locate these species. Rapala crankbaits and live baits have been the choice baits.

    Well that is the fishing report for the past week. Hope you all enjoyed, remember you can catch them from the couch, So get out there and get hooked up. Tight lines!

    Sunny south Florida has a great Inshore nite going on. Snook, tarpon, drum, snapper, jacks and many other species are chewing.

    The snook fishing has been outstanding near mangrove edges, channel edges and around docks. Top water rapala skitter walks are creating explosive strikes. Snook are schooling up along channel edges making the DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail the perfect bait to get the strike. Match the baits in the area and the bite is on.

    Tarpon are being found along mangrove shorelines and drop offs. The DOA Terror Eyz has been the go to bait for the silver king, small profile slow presentation is the key to getting the strike. The tarpon have been averaging 5 to 30 pounds in the back bays.

    The channel edges and deep holes are abundant with a variety of species mackeral, jacks, pompano, bluefish, snook, snapper and many others. Jigs tipped with shrimp will get the drag screaming.

    The freshwater bite has been good, peacock bass have been hanging on deeper holes and near bridge pilings. Clown knife fish are also beer deep edges and bridges. Largemouth bass and sunshine bass are being caught near shad schools using small rapala crank baits and DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail.

    Well that is the fishing report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch. So get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-4371. Visit us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.com

    The past week anglers have enjoyed great snook fishing action, in back bays and canals. Cooler weather has the snook schooled up seeking muddy bottom for heat.

    The mangrove shorelines, docks and deep channels have all offer great snook fishing for angler. Live baits and DOA Terror Eyz have been working great. Small baits have been key as cool water temperatures have the snook lurking near the bottom. The average size of the snook has ranged from 20 to 35 inches.

    Tarpon fishing has been great on low tide and the first of two hours of outgoing tide. Live baits or DOA Terror Eyz I’m in Pearl color have created many strikes for anglers. The tarpon are in schools ranging in size form 5 to 30 pounds in the back country and 25 to 80 near inlets.

    Freshwater fishing has been stellar, largemouth bass and sunshine bass have been abundant near channel edges. Live baits or small crank baits get the drag screaming. The clown knife fish and peacock bass are staging near seawalls and bridge pilings. Jigs and twitch baits Entice strikes, mid day do to cooler weather best time to target the peacock bass.

    Lowrance Pro Angler John Cox Wins FLW Event at Lake Sam Rayburn

    Lowrance®, a world-leader in fishing electronics since 1957, dominated the Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) event on Lake Sam Rayburn in Brookeland, Texas, January 23-26. Lowrance Pros took nine of the top 10 spots, led by John Cox, who claimed the tournament title with a total weight of 65-pounds, 15-ounces. Cox led the event wire-to-wire, having the highest weight on all four days of the competition. Of 154 boats in the field, 106 were running Lowrance electronics.


    In this event, the full field of 154 pro anglers competed in the two-day opening round Thursday and Friday. The top 30 pros, based on their two-day accumulated weight, advanced to fish on Saturday. Only the top 10 pros continued competing on Sunday, with the winner being determined by the heaviest accumulated weight from the four days of competition.


    Cox capped the tournament with a 12-pound, 9-ounce haul on the final day to earn his fifth career FLW pro-level victory. Each of those five victories have come from a different fishery and a different state.


    The Debary, Florida native began his FLW career in 2004 as a co-angler. Since then he has five FLW career victories and two runner-up finishes in the FLW Angler of the Year race. In 2016, Cox made history as the first pro angler to bring home the FLW Forrest Wood Cup in an aluminum boat.

    Longtime Team Evinrude Angler Tommy Skarlis Inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame FFF Staff 01/28/20 10:36 PM

    Longtime Team Evinrude Angler Tommy Skarlis Inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame


    Evinrude announced today that Team Evinrude Professional Angler Tommy Skarlis was inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame at the Northern Illinois Sports Show on January 18th at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois. Executive Director Emmett Brown from Hayward, Wisconsin made the official induction personally.


    An Iowa native, Skarlis honed his fishing skills on Clear Lake, the Mississippi River and its backwaters, as well as the small lakes, farm ponds, and expansive reservoirs throughout the Midwest. Skarlis’ knack for stalking Walleyes turned into a tournament-fishing career, which took roots in 1991. From 1993 to 1998 he fished the Masters Walleye Circuit (MWC), and along the way earned Team of the Year and Team of the Year Runner-up honors. In addition to qualifying for the MWC Championship six straight times, Skarlis also reeled in a Big Stone Lake Champion title in 1996 with partner Chad Kinkade.


    In 1996, Skarlis joined In-Fisherman’s Professional Walleye Trail (PWT). He has since thundered through the circuits; winning the prestigious PWT Angler of the Year title in 2004, snatching 23 top-ten finishes, capturing several biggest fish awards and qualifying for the PWT Championship thirteen straight times. Skarlis earned the nicknames “Mr. Erie” and “Mr. April” by winning the first PWT events, in 2001 at the Detroit River and in 2002 at Lake Erie. In fact, his total weight of 138.28 pounds for 15 fish at the 2002 Lake Erie event set an all-time world-record for total tournament weight in a professional event. In July of 2003, he became part of an elite group by winning his 3rd PWT event, held on Lake Erie in Dunkirk, New York. He advanced that status a notch or two by winning his 4th PWT event in April of 2004 – setting numerous records in the PWT. In 2008, he won the most prestigious title in Walleye fishing, the FLW Walleye Tour Championship. Skarlis continued his winning streak by winning the inaugural A.I.M. Pro Walleye Series Tournament in Saginaw Bay, Michigan in 2009. In total, Skarlis has qualified for 29 straight national championships.


    To be considered for induction into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame, nominees must have had a “lasting national or world impact to the benefit of fresh water sportfishing; are considered persons who have developed a unique communication means or avenue which was instrumental in introducing fishing to the public or in maintaining public interest or awareness; and have gained, by their expertise and professionalism, a status of credibility and immortality judged so by their customers, the region and/or their peers.”


    “You know, a lot of people asked, ‘When are you going to make the Hall of Fame?’,” said Skarlis. “To me, I never expected to make it, I just dreamed of it. So now it’s time to springboard off of this recognition and use this accolade as an opportunity to inspire more people to go fishing. My life was changed for the better through fishing and if I had to pick what I wanted my legacy to be, it would be for my fishing to help change other peoples’ lives for the better.”


    The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum is the international headquarters for education, recognition and promotion of fresh water sportfishing. Its mission is to develop and maintain the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame and its museum for the preservation and display of historical artifacts of fresh water sportfishing. The Museum strives to conduct and maintain a program for the recognition of persons, organizations and institutions who have made significant and lasting contributions to the sport and heritage of fresh water fishing. They also conduct and maintain a program for qualifying, compiling and publishing all fresh water sportfishing records.

    Palm Beach Jupiter Salt and Freshwater report PhlatsInshorefishing 01/26/20 07:09 PM
    Cool weather had infiltrated south Florida this past week. Cool air and cooler water temperatures had the snook piled up in deep holes and along channel edges.


    The snook were schooled up holding tight to the muddy bottom and structures. DOA Terror Eyz on light leader got the snook chewing as well as live baits. This past week we caught all four different species of snook making the trips more gratifying.

    The tarpon have been active along channel edges on the outgoing tide, live baits freelined and DOA C.A.L. 3” shad tail in green back get the rods bent.

    Drum, jacks, snapper, moonfish and a few pompano have also been caught this week by anglers. Always nice to have a plethora of species to target.

    Freshwater the cool weather had the peacock bass deep, holes and feeders were the area to locate the peacocks. Clown knifefish and Florida sunshine bass were abundant along shorelines and bridge pilings. Bait school were a good sign fish were in the area.

    Well that is the report for the past week hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! PhlatsInshoreFishing.com 5616444371. Visit us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
