Business is slow Bite is not!

August into September is usually slow, but I still fish a lot. I fish family and friends doing some R&D. I have fished from N. Biscayne Bay to Key Largo. The fish have been cooperative from Trout and Snook in north end to Mahi, Tuna, Mutton Snappers Yellowtails in the South Bay and Key Largo. Flamingo in Everglades National Park has been very productive. The Snook Bite has awesome as well as Smaller Tarpon. The Goliath Grouper is an exciting catch, the most powerful bite you can get in the Mangroves.

All fish were caught on NLBN lures todays!

I was introduced to Brandon at NLBN he took me through the warehouse and showed me the whole process, it’s Really cool. I appreciated the lesson, and he loaded me up with some of their swim baits and jigs.

I took my buddy Mike and his son Shawn to Flamingo to give these NLBN baits a try.

The sun still wasn’t up, we already had Tarpon in the air a couple of Trout and Jacks.

I was excited but it wasn’t until later that really impressed me. We caught plenty of Snook and a couple Reds up in a mullet mud, but that’s not what got me excited.

The next spot we had 3 Tarpon on the 1/8-ounce Twisted T. But still not convinced!

There was still more to come, we went back toto another mullet mud and it didn’t take long. Shawn had the hot hand all day and was consistently hooked up. I was just watching to see his technique. The 3 of us sat there for an hour and half catching Snook after Snook and a couple 70lb Tarpon mixed in.

I’m totally impressed at a few things. The jigs are totally solid with a corkscrew, this keeps the bait on all day unless a Shark or big Jack eats it deep. The bait allows you to use a lighter weight jig in shall water. It seemed to swim across the bottom pretty good without snagging grass.

I’m totally impressed and will throw this lure on my trips!

Scroll down you will see where I have been, if you like what You see we can do it!
