This emerging fishery in South Florida promises a little adventure and a great dinner.
By SaltWater Sportsman’s George Poveromo
Deep Rewards: The waters off Miami, Florida, have a vast network of natural and artificial reefs, one of the best in the world. These reefs attract bait and predator species, providing excellent bottomfishing, which attracts pelagics as well. But a little farther offshore lies a fishery that only a select few, knowledgeable captains take advantage of: the tilefish fishery. Tilefish typically make their homes in 600 feet of water or more. This highly productive fishery is just another in a long list of outstanding opportunities found right in the shadow of one of America’s largest urban areas, only minutes from downtown Miami. And of all the skippers who can find them, no one knows Miami bottomfishing better than Capt. Bouncer Smith. Read the rest of this entry →

Fishing is about as wholesome and pure as it gets in the world today. I personally was introduced to fishing at a young age when my dad took me down to our dock and waved a fish in front of my face. I have been hooked ever since, not just on fishing but also on anything related to the outdoors. I still thank my Dad as often as possible for helping to instill that passion in me. I am also grateful for the bond that it created between us and the many great memories neither one of us will ever forget. As a parent, an introduction to the outdoors is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give to your child.
It is very important to know where to start if you’re thinking about getting yourself or your family into fishing. The best way is by taking a trip to your nearest Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. At Bass Pro Shops you will find yourself surrounded by the cutting edge in fishing and outdoor gear as well as all the products that a beginner would need to get started.
