Happy Mothers Day!
This week on FlatsMafia Radio, we go over the roasting James took at the boat ramp and some tricks for Cobia. The Cobia are literally all over the flats right now. Look in all of the manatee spots and you will find them. Typical rig for these fish are 40-60lb leader and a 3-5 circle hook, we recomend using a large pinfish with a cork. Have the bait ready to fly while your searching for cobia. Other tips are: enough space to store the fish after you catch it, have enough ice to keep the fish cold, and make sure you have a gaff on board. Tarpon are also starting to show up, have the same rig for tarpon as well. Best bait to use for poons are crabs and thread fins. Happy hunting and keep it classy.
We are happy to announce that FlatsMafia Radio is now on 102.5 The Bone. We are pumped up to be apart of the 102.5 family. We have also added Paige Coffey to our offical crew.

This last week we had another great show with "Reel BBQ" stopping in and bringing us some food. (It was chainless). We also go over how the redfish in Tampa are chewing everywhere. James and Glenn fished 2 different areas and wore the reds out. Fish are eating cut bait, caught with the best fisherman on the boat"Rod-Knee" or AKA (The Rod Holder). Cut up some pins or threadfins or greenies chum the water... bait up, stick it in Rod-Knee and sit back and wait for the rod to bend. It can at times be very boring but once it goes off its worth it. There are also some snook and trout around if thats your target. Snook are near structure, look for the rocks near bridges and trout are still in the grass flats in Georgetown and Rocky Point. Next week we will be LIVE at Seminole Heights General Store on Hillsborough and Florida. Stop by and see us.. we might just have some giveaways! Tightlines and 2Fangers.
