The inshore fishing in South Florida might not be the best but if you know where to go the bass fishing is top notch. Friend of The New Angler, Mike Caprio, has been bitten by the largemouth bug. Here he is with a couple of his latest catches…
So as a regular working guy, who lives in a regular working world, on a regular working guy’s budget I always perk up when I see anything going on in the fishing/boat world that seems to be a reasonable deal. Recently I stumbled across a boat that came out late last year from a small builder here in Florida that seemed to have potential.
If you’ve ever seen the site before you might have gathered that part of The New Angler posse is from the home of your Florida Gators and birthplace of some great music, a little University town I like to call Gainesville Rock City, USA. Here’s a relatively new joint from Hot Water Music that we dig.
Saving money and waiting for the perfect deal on the perfect boat started to get unbearable so I decided to get into the kayak game. I figured for a few hundred beans I could have something to curb my appetite until I could get the boat I’ve been waiting for. Plus they come in bright yellow.

I’m primarily a fisherman. I’d much rather fish than any number of activities you could name off. I have been to a few dove shoots when I was a younger fellow, but hunting had never really been on my radar. I’ve wanted to sit in a tree stand and kill a buck. I’ve wanted to shoot a hog. I’ve even wanted to bust a few ducks from a blind. There are two things that have consistently stopped me from doing any of these activities and they would be 1.) Money. Adding hobbies gets real expensive, real quick. 2.) I like to fish too much to devote any amount time to other endeavors. Read more>
I got a call from B.J. telling me that Frenchy (Jon French) was coming into town late Thursday night and that all three of us should hit the Gulf on Friday. I hadn’t taken a “personal” day at work in some time, so I figured what the hell. The tides were absolutely horrible. Low tide was around 11:30 am and high tide wasn’t until around 6:15 pm. Read more>
