Its Spring Time in Hernando County Florida. The weather is great and the fishing is even better, right now we have a wide verioty of game fish to target.

January Fishing Report

Posted by Capt. Josh on January 20, 2019 at 11:35 PM

Shallow water grouper

Posted by Capt. Josh on November 26, 2018 at 4:50 PM

November and December is shallow water grouper time here in Hernando Beach Florida. During this time of year the water cools down and the gags come in shallow 6-12 feet of water. There are many different ways to target grouper but here are my two favorite ways, free lining live green backs and pin fish is probably the most effective way to get a fast bite. Anchor up wind and current at least 75 feet away form the spot take a few live baits and chum the rock watch the water for boils or pops f...

Snook are also chewing good you will find these silver bullets around mangroves and points w...
