OS 1232: It’s (Almost) The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

You remember how it felt around Christmas time when you were a kid? Back then, it truly was “the most wonderful time of the year”! But for all of us who love the outdoors, we’re smack in the middle of the holiday season – it’s an amazing time for fishing, and hunting is just around the corner! If you’re into good stories, as well as a couple stomach-turners, THIS is the episode for you.

Sailfish, spanish, tarpon, jacks, kings, sharks (of course) – it has been CRAZY good for First Coast anglers this week. There’s all kinds of bait everywhere, and in a related story, approximately two million mullet have been certified insane as well…exciting stuff!

On the hunting side of things, trail cams are going off non-stop, snapping pic after pic of bucks that are…well, feeling a bit excited, if you know what we mean. It’s going to be a GREAT season!
