January Fishing Best Bets

By: Terry Gibson


Start the year off right with these great January fishing adventures.

Check out the Spanish mackerel bite off Stuart. Millions of fish gather inside a barrier reef off the Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge. It's great action for parents and kids. These things peel off a lot of line. Plus Spanish mackerel are delicious cooked fresh and awesome smoked.

Go sailfishing out of West Palm Beach. Sailfishing history all but started here, and most of the advances in tackle and techniques were refined here. Become part of a proud legacy of sportsmanship, and enjoy the best sailfishing in anyone's memory.

Go pompano fishing in the Indian River Lagoon. From Sebastian down to Stuart and through Jupiter, pompano move inshore making exciting and delicious targets for fly fishermen and light-tackle anglers.

Enjoy a cool night in the Everglades under the stars crappie fishing on the Kissimmee River. There's not much more relaxing than catching a mess of tasty crappie under the moon, on a cool January evening.

Go redfishing in Flamingo. Vast schools of redfish stack up on the flats close to the Flamingo Marina, in Everglades National Park. Fly anglers love this time of the year, but all you really need to do is be able to throw a jig or spoon 60 feet or so to hook one of these bruisers.
