millart82 posted a topic in Florida FishingI've seen a lot of content on fishing the bridges, and I know that January is not the best month -- but that's when I'm free and that's when I'm going. Can anyone offer some January-specific DIY fishing advice for the Keys? Pretty much interested in tangling with anything of size that pulls, so not ashamed to pursue sharks, barracudas and jacks in addition to the more "desirable" species. Not looking for meat, just a good time with a buddy. So where should we go in January? What should we target in January? How should we target them in January? Very much appreciate any advice that folks can offer or direction to a thread that addresses this, if I may have missed it.
All, I'm taking a trip to the keys in June and will be targeting tarpon, primarily under bridges, all from shore. I have a Penn Slammer 3 6500 that I just used in the Caribbean. Big fan. My fishing partner is convinced we will need 500 yds of 80lb braid to catch big tarpon. So, what exactly should we be using? We will be throwing artificials and bait. The Slammer I have can hold 350 yds of 50lb PowerPro. Is this going to be sufficient if I hook a decent fish? I am worried about line strength due to the structure, but I'm also worried about capacity for obvious reasons. Will my reel be sufficient, and what line/capacity would be enough? Thanks so much!
