13th DOA Outdoor Writer Festival - Day Two

Capt. Ryan 'Banks' Floyd with a dock snook
Great weather greeted the guides and anglers who left River Palms to complete the fishing activities at DOA camp. The night before saw the DOA jam band groove from sunset and well into the night. Martin County, Florida is the setting for the DOA Outdoor Writer's Festival, and even though times might be tight for the outdoors industry, DOA Lures rolls out the welcome mat as always. With new baits in development all the time, this event gives DOA a chance to share the latest and greatest developments. Armed with a box full of DOA Lures, Capt. Ryan Floyd of Off The Banks Charters, took me over to the St. Lucie River to cast under some docks for fish. Snook and trout were caught and released after a few photos, and then we set up shop at the old Roosevelt bridge for monster snook and tarpon.While the big ones did not comply with our plans, Capt. Floyd is a go-getter who is not afraid to try and drag out a quality gamefish from underneath the docks, which is always a good game plan - whether fishing during the day or at night.
