This Week’s Chevy Florida Insider Fishing Report Features Marlin

This week’s broadcast of the Chevy Florida Insider Fishing Report will focus on marlin. There are two commonly caught species of marlin in Florida; the blue marlin and the white marlin. The blue marlin is the bigger of the two species and can grow to over 1,000 lbs. The blue marlin is one of the most iconic game fish in the history of sport fishing. For those of you who remember your American literature, it is the species Santiago fought in Ernest Hemingway’s classic novel, “The Old Man and the Sea.”

Marlin are deep water, pelagic species most often caught while trolling live and artificial baits. Even if you never get deep offshore you’ll want to tune in to learn about this classic game fish. The show will offer information on the species as well as tips and techniques for catching them in the many regions around the state.

The show also features fishing reports from nine regional areas of the state. The regional reports are given by regular professional fishing guides who are featured each week. They cover both the Gulf Coast from the Panhandle to the Keys around to the Atlantic Coast and up to Jacksonville.

Each week the show highlights a particular feature or game fish each week and also showcases new tackle, techniques, and other outdoors related products throughout the show.

The show usually airs Thursday at 5:30 pm and again at 10:30pm on Sun Sports/FOX Sports Florida. That’s channel 31 if you have Brighthouse Networks in Polk County. If you miss Thursday’s broadcasts, the show repeats again on at 6:30 am and again at 11:30 am and again on Saturday at 9:30am. However, times tend to change in the Tampa Bay region due the Tampa Bay Rays schedule so check local listings.
