Winter Fishing in Florida

Quick Tip to Florida Fishing in the Winter

Fishing in the colder months in Florida can be a little hard.  Not that we really get a "cold" winter, but fish do tend to change their normal behavior when the weather changes.                                                                                                                                                                                         Fish are cold blooded so therefor the water temperature regulated the fish body temperature.    When a cold front is coming down, fish become more active and feed more, but when that front passes over, well, the bite is off.   The cold front will cause the fish to become slow and sluggish, in other words, they do not chase after bait.  If fishing after a cold front, you have to make sure the bait is right in front of them and let it sit.  If the opportunity is there, the fish will bite.  Their body doesn't digest food quickly, so no need to eat as often.                                 If your out on the lake and recently had a cold front, look for the deeper areas.  Fish will go deeper to find warmer water.  ...

What to expect on an Airboat tour..FAQ

I've been asked a lot of questions about our tours and I think we can help many people with this question and answer blog.  If I forget to cover any questions you have, feel free to comment and I will get right back to you. One of the most common questions is, "do we need bug spray?"  Short answer, no.  We haven't had any issues with bugs and because we are off the water before dark, no mosquitoes.  So, you are welcome to spray on the bug spray, but its really not needed. Sunscreen, YES!  Most of our airboats are not covered right now, it's so pretty out and we would like our guests to see everything that is in the water and in the air.  Since it seems like Central Florida sits 3000 miles closer to the sun than the rest of the world, sunscreen is your best friend here!  Us Floridians, when we shower in the mornings, it's not water coming out, its sunscreen! Can you eat on the boats?  Well, as long as you want to share everything your "trying" to eat with the people sitting behind you and the captain, it's not a good idea.  Our boats can get up to 35 mph on the water. Can we take an umbrella on the boat so we can be covered?  Unfortunately, the only thing taking an umbrella will do is turn inside out.  Imagine driving in a car, roll down the window and hold the open umbrella out.  Yep, that's exactly how it is on an airboat. Rain gear?  We offer rain gear in our office ant check in, or you can bring your own.  We do go out in the light rain, but no lightning.  When it rains, we get to see some wildlife become very active.  The fresh water hitting...
