Showcasing Florida's Best

On the water and in the field Florida is a tropical wonderland like no other.

Come along as together we Showcase Florida's Best.

10:00 AM Friday morning July 23, 2021, due to red tide live pinfish are not available. Let's try live shrimp for the elusive Hog Fish:



We do not catch too many Hogs on the Florida Middle Grounds, but the ones we do tend to be trophy sized:



Before we test the Sunshine State water's let's take a close look at another highly sought after Florida trophy, the mighty boar hog.



Watch the video closely as I release the awesome power of my Marlin Stainless .45-70 Guide Gun:





Now, back to on the water.

As we go from near shore to deep-sea, let's take a look at some recent catches that showcase why Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World:































And now one of the most sought after fish to ever swim, the American Red Snapper:















Will has been first mate on the Florida Fisherman ll for over ten years. He is one of the best of the best.

Will is a dedicated family man with a loving, fish catching, wife, and a precious little daughter. Madison is the daughter any father would be proud to have:



This is what Florida is all about:







On the water and in the field Florida is a tropical wonderland like no other.

"Are you able to go on these trips anymore, Bob?"
After fishing with Hubbard's for over 40 years a couple of years ago my legs got so bad I was forced to quit. At 79 I walk with a walker.
The Marina sends me the raw videos & photos. I process & share. Love doing it. Makes me feel like I am still part of the team.
Miss being on the boat terribly. This is the next best thing.
Have also been hunting my entire life. Now I am forced to go with an outfitter.
Hope to go hog hunting soon. Will share!

I have a friend that uses a walker. Once he's onboard, we help him to the rail. He's kind of a VIP, and he puts fish on the deck.
Hope you get to fish again Bob

The last year I fished I used my walker. My legs got so bad that it just hurt too much,.
I have been balancing on boat deck & charging through swamps for 70 years. Now I am paying the price.
On a limited basis I still do this...
