Hernando Beach Fishing Report.

 

Spring fishing action is in full swing. We have a wide verity of game fish to target right now, red fish are all over the outer islands and mangrove points. Look for good structure and mullet schools for big reds, incoming tide ha produced the best action. Live green backs rigged with a 1/0 or 2/0 circle hook and a 25 pound leader is all you need. Snook are also holding in the same areas live bait is also the way to go for snook. Sea tro...

Hernando Fishing Report

Fishing is good in back water creeks and bays, target red fish, trout and black drum around creeks, Springs, mud bays and oyster bars. Live and dead shrimp is working great. Red fish are holding on islands with hard lime stone bottom and oyster bars, live shrimp or fresh cut mullet rigged with a 1/0 or 2/0 circle hook and a light 20 pound leader is my go to rig. Fish a good moving tide for reds and look for the mullet schools they are always a key sign of reds being close by.

Winter Time Fishing

Fishing is just absolutely great right now in the back country waters. Red fish are holding tight to lime rock bottom and oyster bars fish the last few hours of the incoming tide and first of the outgoing tide. Live jumbo shrimp or pin fish has been the bait of choice. Rigged with a 20 to 25 pound leader and 1/0 to 2/0 circle hook, cast your bait up current or ahead of the activity and let it sit. Most of the reds are ranging from 18 to 26 inches.

Trout are thick in 1 to 3 feet ...
