Slow jigging or slow pitching is a fishing technique that was developed and used in Japan over 10 years ago.

It now is a craze in the United States, even though it has been around the United States for at least 5 years. The reason the Japanese came up with the idea is to implement some new fishing techniques in areas that were highly over fished.

Since they were able to locate the fish, yet not able to get the fish to eat out of hunger, they worked on a method that would get a reaction strike from the fish, rather then a hunger strike. Speed jigging or butterfly jigging was already around and the success had been good and it all worked on the reaction strike theory. The movement of the speed jigging and the original butterfly jig was a vertical reaction presentation.

But the idea and movement of the lure being vertical was itself was what they wanted to change.

Just maybe the most overlooked and underrated type of fishing in Florida are the spillway areas.

I learned about fishing spillway areas by fishing them, but also by huge amounts of research. I called and spoke to power companies that use them for energy production, professors of limnology and aquatic biology. FWC biologists and many anglers that make a lifetime of fishing spillways.

One in particular older gentleman named Hank who, 35 years ago was about 80 (God bless his soul) was at a spillway every night. I watched him collect moss at the spillway, take the moss and catch Tilapia and a certain species of Cichlids on small hooks at the top of the spillway.

He would then go down to the bottom of the spillway into the saltwater and use the live Tilapia and Cichlids as bait for monster snook in the 50 plus inch range. He also use to catch big tarpon the same way.

He did this consistently day in and day out. I can't imagine if he was alive today that he would show this on the internet.

It took me about a year to convince him to teach me how to do this and I promised no Polaroid pictures of such and bringing others there.

Though the jack crevalle is widely caught and a great sport it is probably the most disrespected of all the jacks. Part of that is because anglers don't see it as a food source. If it were a great eating fish, it would be praised. The jack crevalle is a diurnal predator, which means they are most active in the daylight hours. So night fishing is not the best time to target them. The jack crevalle is one of the most powerful swimmers of fish. Jack Crevalle 101 will teach you all you need to know to find and catch Jacks.

Chumming for fish is one of the best if not the most effective technique you can ever learn or master as an angler. I heard another local paid for subscription fishing source state that chumming is a waste of time and money. Now that is 100% completely wrong. The only way I could say that has any truth is, if you don't know what your doing. So I am going to correct that statement this entire show!  Chumming is also the most widely underused and underrated tactics by many anglers. Learning to chum helps catch fish, learning to chum correctly helps to catch a lot more fish. You don't just randomly chum. You target an area of habitat that is likely to hold the species of fish your trying to catch and create your own feeding station. Chumming can be so effective, you can chum grouper, snapper, amberjack and so more from the deep bottom to the surface and then catch them on topwater or fly.

Fishing can be one of the most expensive hobbies that a person gets into, but that is only if you buy into all the hype! The price of the tackle and equipment can be reasonable. But that is not what we are most likely taught by almost everyone working in the industry. Every where you turn in the fishing industry there is a new and better product from the last one. New designs, new actions, new colors, technology changes and of course with that the prices of your fishing equipment goes up. You might of been told, taught or have learned that you need numerous fishing lures or baits in certain sizes, certain colors, certain actions for each species of fish under the thousands of variable conditions your fishing in. Special techniques and tactics that you need specific rods, reels, line and terminal tackle. We cut through the nonsense and make it plane and simple. Buying a fishing outfit for under $100.00 and much less!

Winter fishing in Florida can be absolutely outstanding if you know where to locate the fish species your targeting and how to catch them. The locations of each species change often because of the inconsistent amount of weather changes and fronts that come and go throughout our state. The type of gear you use will change along with the terminal tackle. The tactics and techniques change. We break it down with general locations and areas to fish for all different fish species. Then we will break that down into micro locations and finally pinpoint actual casting and fishing at the micro locations. What will make these places better then others is the warmer and more stable water water temperatures the type of preferred forage that the particular species wants to eat. Safety, oxygen, water clarity and so much more.

One key is deeper water then most trout stay and fishing the lower water column.

Some Anglers call them by catch or accidental catches, but most anglers don't sport fish for them, even though they fight hard and some are excellent table fare.
