Do I need a saltwater or freshwater license?

So a common question that FWC gets asked is when to use a saltwater fishing license or a freshwater fishing license So if you are fishing in brackish water, for example, and you catch a freshwater species, you would need a freshwater fishing license to keep that fish

You may catch red drum in brackish water for instance, which is considered saltwater so therefore you would need a saltwater fishing license For more information or for clarification you can visit MyFWCcom/Fishing

Saltwater Question of the Month: Drag on a Reel

Hi I am Pat from Vero Beach and I was wondering why is it important to set the drag on a reel and then, how it is done? Thank you for your question

Drag on a fishing reel is like the brakes in your car What it does is it puts pressure on the spool of your reel and it helps you bring in the fish What happens is there are discs and stuff in here that help when you tighten this down it puts more pressure on that spool When you loosen this on this spinning reel you can see that the spool gets real loose and there is less pressure on that To set the drag, I tell folks it's kind of a thing that takes a little bit of experience for what fishing you are doing and the best thing to do is to set it to where you think there is enough coming off but its not really too tight

It's coming off nice and smooth with this type of a pole and if you cast out to fish if there is too little drag what happens is the fish will take your bait and it will actually drop the bait or the lure If you have too much drag on for instance, what happens is the fish will take your lure or your bait and you can see that no drag comes out and it will most likely whip that lure or the bait out of the fishes mouth so you would need to adjust it accordingly

EP Style Baitfish Fly – Underwater Footage – Saltwater and warmwater streamer fly

EP style baitfish have become staples in many saltwater fishermans boxes This tutorial will offer some tricks on how to tie them more easily

For a hook, I really like this Gamakatsu SC15 and this size 1/0 works well Start your thread near the eye of the hook You will want a strong thread, like this danville 210 flat waxed Bring your thread to the bend of the hook with smooth wraps, then rotate your fly upside down Cut a few strands of red krystal flash and tie them on in the center of the clump, right under the bend of the hook

Fold the strands angling toward the eye backward, and tie them in as well with tight wraps Then cut them off right about at the end of the hook shank length Rotate your fly to the upright position and clip some strands of fine pearl flashabou and tie them in the same manner as the krystal flash Now clip a very small amount of the top color fiber, cut it in half and save one of the pieces EP fiber or the more affordable Congo hair both work very well for this fly

Tie in your fiber on top of the hook shank in the same way you tied in the flashabou rotate your fly upside down, cut a small amount the under color fiber and tie it in under the fly This time though you will want one part on one side of the hook, then tie the other side of fiber to the other side of the hook And make sure you bring your thread up the hook shank a bit Rotate your fly to the upright position again, then take the other piece of top color fiber you cut and wrap it around the under part of the fly angled up and back

And tie that in Rotate the fly upside down and do the same thing with the under color fiber Pull back the fibers so they are angled back and out of your way Bring your thread up the hook shank slightly once again and rotate your fly once again As you can see, tying it this way allows the fiber to cover the hook shank a bit

You wont see the tie in spots Ok so we are going to do this again multiple times Try to end very close to the eye of the hook I generally do this about 4 more times on each color You really want to use very little fiber in each tie in, because it builds up quick

Keeping this sparse and see through is desirable You can smooth out and build a small head on this fly before whip finishing it Now we are going to trim the fiber to a baitfish shape like this one here To get the fibers spread out, shake out your fly before starting You want them to fan out like so

Now make a cut straight back right below the hook Turn your fly over and make another cut straight back about the same depth Round off the front corners and trim the back to length carefully Shape your fly by stroking the fibers back to know where you need to make trims, then fan it out again and trim Do this multiple times throughout the trimming process making sure to make even cuts on both sides You will end up with the fibers squared off at the cut when you are done, so I like to trim the fibers slightly on an angle to make the fly more natural and round looking

But this is not necessary, and can be tricky So be careful if you do this Once you trim your fly to the correct size and shape, you can start adding the eyes I like adding a drop of zap-a-gap “goo” to my bodkin, then using the bodkin to place the eye on the fly This drys a bit slower than super glue and allows you to move the fly around for a few seconds to get them into the correct place

Try to make your eyes as even as possible as that will help in the fly’s tracking when being stripped This is not necessary, but I like to add a UV curing resin to the head and eyes to really lock everything in place I am using a product by Solarez called “bone-dry” It can be applied with the built in the cap brush and cures very quickly The first coat, you want to paint on the head of the fly, and barely get the eyes

Then zap it with your curing light Then I add a second coat, this time covering the eyes completely, and up over the top of the eyes I leave the bottom alone on this coat to insure that the fibers on the underside of the fly don’t harden and get in the way of the hook set And there we have it, and EP style baitfish fly While it does still take a while to tie, I believe this technique to be slightly easier

These move wonderfully in the water, and really do look like a small baitfish Hey, thanks for watching! If you like this sorta thing, please subscribe! Check out my website for more video’s at wwwMcFlyAnglercom now go catch some fish!

Mullet Run Inshore Saltwater Fishing for Snook in Stuart, Florida

Today we're fishing in Stuart, Florida it's a gorgeous morning and we just got to the boat ramp at Sandsprit Park, I just threw my net, one cast and we got some bait there's some live mullets everywhere Ok, so the first thing I did with this morning was catch the bait i've got probably a dozen two dozen small little finger mullet and live well so that's a good thing and now what we're doing is we're doing a little bit of topwater action this morning usually when the sun is first coming up that's the best time to throw topwaters and I'm throwing a mullet popper and Captain pad is throwing a lure that walkie walks the dog with along the surface for trying to get those surface bites first thing in the morning and that usually shuts down as soon as the Sun starts to come up so we're going to this for a few minutes and then we're going to switch our tactics ok so we've left inshore we tried the top water thing this morning no luck from Captain Pat he got a bunch of hits I got a couple hits but we didn't actually hook up on a fish so we decided to head off shore it's a beautiful day today this is the first time we've got our flats boat offshore on the beach and it's absolutely gorgeous as you can see flat calm so what we're doing is we're looking for mullet pods on the beach headed south and I just saw some tarpon rolling so we're just checking out the area of seeing if we can see some mullet and some tarpon and hopefully snook as well and just enjoying the area and you're learning more about it about eleven o'clock in the morning give you guys a little update we haven't caught any fish still at zero we are in Stuart the capital of the world for fishing here in Florida especially during the mullet run and I don't know why we haven't caught a fish but getting a little bit frustrated and we got our live bait out we're seeing plenty of huge snook seen a bunch of tarpon already seen all kinds of the fish snapper lady fish you name it I've seen it and the fish are just not eating with putting our baits right in front of them and they are not touching it for whatever reason the currents not moving that fast yet so we'll see what happens but hopefully we can try to catch one fish today that's the goal now yeah he's going to keep at it and hopefully we're going to change spots here soon alright so we moved to a different location which is a good idea and we came up to spot where there's a nice sea wall here and we ended up throwing our finger mullets captain Pat caugth some more finger mullets for us and all of us are fishing live bait and I'm just had this bait on the surface and it got slammed by a big snook and he's gonna jump I think No cooler, no ice, we suck nice fish that's a slot please don't break my thirty well that's a nice fish so pretty (splash) (splash) he's looking good looking real good that's a slot fish fish Here's 30 that's 31 Gorgeous slot fish here total length of 31 inches I'll take it awesome fish and he's really really pretty as you can see put up a great fight and I think we're gonna go catch more fish go ahead and release him (music) (music) (music) Darcie hooked this Jack but her arms were so tired from her last snook that she decided to let me fight it

Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll just come off There's other ones with it nice (splash) Hard lil fighter Hold 'em up

Get out of here You're the jack king of Stuart Look at this, Capt Pat turned his back

Captain Pat Pat turned his back on me so I wouldn't see him with that Jack hahaha He's shy He's shy (splash) nice! nice (splash) (splash) There's a big one with him, look at the huge one looking for something to eat There was a big one with it maybe it was going to eat it (splashing) (music) we're going under people's docks

(whisper) I'm ready for a cheeseburger Cheeseburger in paradise? Winding down our trip, we're going out to lunch with Darcy's dad today and somehow I got roped into buying Capt Pat lunch Oh yea, he put gas in the boat So we're trying this one last bulkhead and then we're going to wrap it up stay tuned Captain Pat is, I don't know, seems like he might catch a fish (music) Alright so we're back home wrapping up the day and we had a beautiful day fishing in Stuart Florida I ended up having some lunch with my father, it was a great time spending some quality time with him and eating a delicious lunch so we're back home now overall the fishing was great

It was a little on the slow side you know the full moon is showing up tomorrow usually that slows down the bite the fish bite in the nighttime when it's light out So today we ended up catching that slot snook, Capt Pat from Swamp to Sea Guide Service caught a small jack and a nice snook and overall the fishing was a little on the slow side but I'm blaming it on the full moon and you know at least we got to experience the area take our flats boat up there for the first time and just explore new waters and we're looking forward again to get back up there again for some more fishing and i'm actually headed to Naples Florida tomorrow, I'm going to be doing Take A Soldier Fishing and I've been invited by The Coastal Angler Magazine, Naples edition and i'm going to be fishing, I'm going to be part of the tournament I'm going to be at the captain meeting and dinner party any awards ceremony as well as fishing with veterans and we're going to be going off shore and I think targeting groupers and stuff So I'm looking forward to that event, should be a great event, it's for a great cause and basically until the next adventure, follow your dream and keep on catching! yeah

Part 2 – Mullet Masterclass – UK Saltwater fly fishing

Hi Im colin macleaod Ive been invited to this year's UK saltwater fly fishing festival down here in st mawes to give advice on mullet

I started off fly fishing for trout, and spent many years doing that, but when I moved to the south of england, it was really the sea that caught my attention, and the wild fish that inhabit it Started off fishing for bass as most people do Catching small bass for several years, but after a while you look for something larger That's why I turned my attention to mullet Plenty of large mullet around but the problem is "How to catch them?" So, I took up the challenge

Very little information available when I first started on the internet or in magazines, so it was really a suck it and see type situation The first mullet I ever caught was on a flexi-floss blood worm, which is pretty much a trout fly and I caught that on my very first cast From From that point on I was really quite hooked, every bit as hooked as the mullet were It took me probably another five months to land my second mullet and that gives you an indication of just how tricky they are to bring to the net I was fortunate enough to be asked by Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Magazine, to write a monthly saltwater column and that gave me the opportunity and impetus then to experiment and spend quite allot of time fishing

Luckily there was a mullet hot spot within a mile or two of my home, so I was able to visit regularly, and get the practice in So how do you catch a mullet? The first step is to locate fish, if you can find a location with a good population of mullet there, then you are well on the road The approach to mullet depends on the type of mullet you have found the most common mullet are thick lipped mullet They are most likely to be found around the mouths of rivers or estuaries

Typically, they feed on the incoming tide in the current created by the river as it runs into the sea So, the tactic for them is very very simple, its a dead drift technique, which simply means you use a floating line, and you present the flies up currcent from the mullet and let them just drift in the current towards the fish keeping the fly line tight, look at the end of the fly line, and if you see any movement, or the fly line stops, then give a gentle strip strike to set the hook Don't lift the rod as you would for a trout because you won't set the hook, the mullet has a very tough upper lip and hook won't penetrate it and after the first run you will loose the fish almost certainly So, dead drifting towards an approaching shoal is as simple as that The flies that we would use, good drifting flies are diawl bachs, the diawl bach is a very traditional trout pattern, the difference about this fly is that it has blue peacock feathers as a tail and two red glass beads to form the head

Thats what really sets it apart, and for some reason the mullet take that fly very readily indeed If you have a shoal of feeding thick lips, and you drift these flies toward them, its almost certain that they will take the fly The ghostbuster is another very useful fly, it has a foam body so it will float in the water and if the fish are feeding in very shallow water as they tend to do, in any case thats the fly So, if they are feeding in 6 inches of water or less, a ghost buster is a good fly because it just drifts over the weed and stones and avoids getting snagged The spectra shrimp, is a fly that I created a couple of years ago

It is a very bright, blingy fly, and I was a little concerned to begin with that it might scare the fish rather than attract themThe first time I gave it a swim it had instant success and it is one of the few flies that if you pull it in front of feeding mullet, they'll actually chase after it and take the fly, so it is very useful in that respect Another fly that mullet will chase, is the red tag, again thats a traditional fly from the 18th century, and they will chase that as well So, these are the two of the very few flies that mullet will chase You need to retrieve the flies in front of mullet that are feeding in still water where there is no current, so ideally its dead drift the flies towards them, in the absence of a current, then a very slow retrieve with a spectra, shrimp, red tag or even a diawl bach, thats a good fly as well

The second most common type of mullet are the thin-lipped mullet Their preferred habitats feeding is over mud banks on the flooding tide Also, they are found well up tidal rivers that in Sussex for instance, you'll find them six miles upstream, even more So, they're are quite happy to be an environment where there is more than just a drop of fresh water, in fact the fresh water seems to attract them When they feed over mud, it's a very simple approach as well

You just find an area where thin lips come in on the flooding tide, as the water comes over the mud flats, the fish will rush in to eat shrimps called mud shrimps, their latin name is Corophium Volutator, so theres a very limited period of time for the mullet to claim these shrimps before they return to the safety of their underground burrows So, thats why you will see thin lipped mullet with their backs out the water really rushing in to shallow water to grab these shrimps before they escape to their burrows So, there's two flies to imitate the mud shrimps, one is the flexi shrimp, obviously brown, and that's because shrimps in that sort of environment tend to be brown The other fly is imaginatively called the mud shrimp or Corophium volutator is the latin name The approach for these fish as they are feeding on the shrimp in the very shallow water, is to stand in slightly deeper water, you've got to be careful when mud is involved, you know, don't go in a soft muddy area, safety first, but where there's mud banks, there tends to be areas of gravel between them where the water scours through, and you can stand on those quite safely

So that gives you a good vantage point behind the fish, you can see them as they progress over the mud hunting the shrimp, simply a case of drop the flies where the fish are feeding, in amongst them, let them settle for a few seconds and then a few quick strips is usually all it takes The problem then of course is you've got anchor ropes and chains where yachts are present because they tend to feed around yachts on mud banks you have to be ready for the first run for the nearest anchor rope of chain So it makes it very exciting to hold the fish back and see it jump and they give a good fight Thin lips tend to be in the 2-3lb range in that sort of environment Up rivers, I had my first experience with that a few weeks ago, somebody contacted me to say that they had found shoals of thin lips well up river but they were having difficulty catching them

So, we met up and tried with the normal tactics of diawl backs and spectra shrimps, but we got no response at all, even though there were quite good shoals present We then hatched a plan based on a technique to catch thin lipped mullet using mepps, spinner tipped off with rag worm and the flexi worm has accounted for many mullet for myself over the years, and its been suggested by quite number of people that that represents a ragwort or harbour rag it's called specifically, which is a small red ragworm So, we popped one of those on the point fly and next cast we had interest straight away And a few casts later a fish came and took the diawl bach that was on the dropper, so it was almost as if the flexi worm acted as an attractor in some ways They started to pull at the flexi floss legs as well which was quite annoying, but we managed to get success and thats a technique that seems to work

The 3rd type of mullet that's available to us in the UK is the golden grey mullet, they tend to be found on sandy beaches, mainly in the South of the country, South coast of England, Cornwall, Devon, South wales is a real hotspot Hampshire and Sussex, we don't have sandy beaches there to any great extent, but even a small sandy bay 30 meters wide, they will come and feed there because sand is what they look for The best technique for catching golden greys, is to enter the water behind the shoal, again they will feed on the advancing tide, right on the edge of the tide As the waves break over the sand, they're just behind, because the sand stirs up the food and they are ready to pounce The angler takes up position behind the golden greys, maybe 15 yards behind

Probably the best fly in that situation, again is the flexi worm, because as I've explained it's taken as some kind of marine worm Thats a very good technique – if it's not working or if there is insufficient waves to generate food for them, then the will simply patrol on the flooding tide, maybe for an hour or so until they eventually find food, then they'll start to feed and quite fervently In that situation, the diawl bach that we looked at earlier is a good fly, the spectra shrimp as well, in other words you're starting to pull them slowly in front of the fish, rather than allowing the worm fly to just roll around in the wash and be discovered by the golden grey So thats the three environments that you'll traditionally find these fish in and the techniques for catching them There's been some advancements in the last year or so thats produced some really exciting fishing under some quite different circumstances

One was on a surf beach in wales, typical golden grey type surf beach, but the difference with this surf beach is that all three species of mullet can be caught there at the same time The reason for that is the presence of an algae, which forms as the water warms up That algae is common all round the British Isles, the North Sea, so lots of european coasts have it as well It's usually seen as white foam, but once it blooms, algae blooms like a flower, after it does it it dies Once it dies it turns brown, and the brown decaying algae is deposited on the sand, and it's very easy to see the areas where the algae has been deposited

As you walk down the beach, and these beaches tend to be three miles long, or more, you know beautiful long surf beaches, pristine white breakers smashing on to the beach, every hundred years or so you'll see a 20 yard wide strip of brown water, and that water is caused by the presence of the algae Wherever you find the algae in the water, you'll find fish without a doubt It can be any of the three species, it just depends on which shoal you come across So you have a very good chance of a mullet grand slam in a situation like that So that's been tremendous fishing

We've tried and failed at producing an algae fly, a fly that looks like a bit of the algae, typically it's probably the size of a 10 pence piece, it's brown and bubbly a bit like an aero bar, and it floats on the water as the tide comes in, it picks it up and the fish follow and eat on it So, you'll see thousands of fish basically 2o yards from the shore eating on this algae but if you've spent all day covering them with flies and slowly stripping them through you'd probably catch one or two, maybe miss a few more and it's wonderfully exciting as well, very visual But the most effective technique has been discovered by a Welsh guy called Darren Jackson, and he ignores the fish that are 20 yards off shore and instead he targets the fish that are within a few feet of the edge of the water, in water thats six inches deep As the surf pushes in the waves, you get these water tables forming, which are maybe 20 – 30yards wide and 6 inches deep or so, and in there often concealed are good numbers of decent fish The first time most fishers realise they are there, as they walk in the water and spook them and they just go shooting off into the surf, so Darren came up with the technique of ignoring the fish further out, looking along the wash for little groups feeding on shrimps rather than the algae, and he'll creep along often on his hands and knees for the last few yards to take up position

As the water goes out and leaves dry sand, the fish go with it, they will then come back in within seconds, there's a new wave forms and a new table pushes up, and then you need to be in position waiting for the fish to come back in on the table and then it's sight fishing from that point of view You can see which way they are moving, and you just drop the flies in front of them The flies which are really successful there again are the spectra shrimp, the ghost buster, its good in the very shallow water, they'll take a ghostbuster as well, and the diawl bach The diawl bach is practically the same as this one here but we put a sparkly tail on, instead of a feather tail we put a bit of crystal flash on and give it a rib of crystal flash as well and that seems to make a difference in these conditions The fish will take a sparkly diawl bach more readily than a normal red headed one

The other fly that we've had some success with is the romy's shrimp, I created that one during the winter specifically for this festival to fish over sand for golden greys I trialled it in Spain in June and it caught mullet straight away, so it's done well And it has caught fish on a surf beach in Wales as well So the message really about the surf beaches, we have sandy surf beaches in many areas off the UK and we have this algae forming, I've done some research and apparently it's very wide-spread, and if there's mullet i the area as well, then the chances are that were you find the algae you will find the mullet The really interesting thing about the algae, is that it's a very common algal bloom, while it's living it appears as white foam, and it's actually toxic to the fish and marine life at that point of time, but once it blooms it's like a massive cell division at which point it then dies

, Once it dies it turns brown and decays and as soon as it is decaying it releases carbohydrates, and sugars such as polysaccharides, so the algae in it's brown form is basically an energy drink, and thats why the fish go looking for it These fish as a result of them feeding on this energy drink day in day out throughout the summer, are wonderfully fit, large specimens of fish and put up a fantastic fight So thats really worth checking out That fishing is probably the most exciting fishing I've experienced ever, it's that good I'm often asked about the sort of equipment to use

Like the tactics we use it's very straight forward and simple Normal trout rods, preferably 5-6 weights are ideal, and it's always a floating line that we use because the shoals are always encountered in shallow water So you need a floating line, especially when you want the flies to drift in the current, obviously a floating line aids that If the line passes over a shoal of fish it doesn't disturb them in any way and they'll simply swim under it If it was an intermediate line, they'd probably touch the line and may become spooked so, floating line

You do get salt water specific outfits, many companies produce 6 weight rods, but a 5 weight at this point in time you'll have to use a freshwater rod, or a river rod A greys Streamflex 5 weight is perfect, quite sensitive and the advantage of using a 5 or 6 weight outfit as well is when the fish are feeding in very shallow water, you want the impact of the fly line to be as delicate as possible If you use a 9 weight, may salt water fishers do, then it's about a delicate as a felled tree falling on the water in front of them and it will almost certainly spook them So go light, thats the best way The leaders I use tend to be 12ft long, and I like to use one dropper, about 3 feet up from the point to keep the flies quite close together

I used to fish with two droppers but I found that rarely if ever caught a fish on the top dropper, and if the conditions are windy, then it is more prone to tangling, so one dropper is a good idea I just tie the leader straight through, no tapered leaders The small flies, these flies are size 12, so they are very easy to turn over You tend to be creeping up on the mullet so there is no long distance casts involved, so if your'e not the greatest caster in the world, then mullet fishing is probably for you Leader, fluorocarbon I prefer myself for several reasons: One is the fact that it is practically invisible in water and less likely to spook the fish

Mullet have some of the best eyesight of any fish that swims, so you don't want it to see the leader The other thing is that saltwater is more buoyant that fresh water, so the fact that fluorocarbon is heavier than nylon or copolymer and sinks more readily, thats in your favour as well You don't want to see the leader, curled up on the surface, catching the sunlight because that really will spook the fish Really that's it, very simple, the tactics sound simple because they are The most important thing is to find shoals, and find shoals that are feeding

When they are feeding, you will see that they suddenly become animated, they'll swim quickly, they'' splash and swirl, they'll turn on their sides and give silver flashes, thats an indication that they are turning to pick up food So when you see that that's the time to get your flies in amongst them and you will almost certainly hook up Good luck!

Pier fishing: What is stealing your bait?

Picture this: You're at a great fishing spot, you've got bait on your line, you and your buddies are having a great time– But you cant catch $#*%!!! Something keeps stealing your bait! *crunching, munching* Something is pickin' these apart and we can't catch 'em! So what do we do? What we do is we try harder! Ha, and longer! Solomon's Island is a great place to fish and crab because it sits right on the Chesapeake Bay

We went there for the famous Maryland Blue Crab, but we couldn't catch anything (You see that crab?) Now get the net, get the net! Ahh! Oh! Nooo! When we watched the footage at home, we realized that our bait attracted all sorts of weird underwater creatures We also noticed that there were a bunch of little, small, Northern Pufferfish enjoying a free meal of free chicken necks These chicken necks actually attracted a whole bunch different kind of little strange fish Like magnets, the schools of spot and other fish were attracted to the bait

This guy caught a spade fish in his crab trap! So, one of the weirdest fish that we saw that day was called the Sea Robin, and the Sea Robin is a very strange looking fish with tentacle-like legs, really big spikes, and fins like wings, where it can actually fly out over the water, but the Sea Robin is actually a bottom-feeder! We also saw a herd of beautiful cownose rays, which weren't really interested in our chicken necks but the weirdest fish that we saw was a fish called the Toadfish, and this is a really slimy, gross-looking, um, squishy fish that was, actually, not eating the chicken necks, but instead it was standing on top, it was floating on top of the chicken necks, waiting for little fish to come by so it would eat the little fish So, it wasn't interested in eating the chicken neck, it was interested in guarding the chicken neck and surprising fish, and eating them

The Toadfish could have been what was keeping the crabs away, honestly, We wound up losing all of our chicken necks that day and had to stop fishing because we were out of bait The pufferfish, I guess, just outsmarted us that day, and I wanna know from you guys, have any of you ever been outsmarted by fish? Well, I know for a fact that fish have outsmarted me actually, they outsmart me almost every time I go fishing One time I hooked on to a snakehead, it was a big snakehead, shook it off right at the boat, and looks at me for a good five seconds before it just swims off Just saying, like, "haha, f*#% you" We're going to bleep that out
