January Fishing Report

Posted by Capt. Josh on January 20, 2019 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Old man winter is here in Florida but the fishing is great. Our fish we target at this time is Speckled sea trout, Red fish, Sheepshead. Sea trout are holding in very shallow water 1-2 feet deep on hard lime stone bottom, fish these guys on a incoming and first part of the outgoing tide. We are doing great with soft plastic zoom baits in white, Arkansas shad, Albino, and watermelon red. Rig these baits weedless with a 4/0-5/0 skip gap worm hook tied with a loop knot for more life like action,...

Shallow water grouper

Posted by Capt. Josh on November 26, 2018 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (0)

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...

Hernando Beach Fishing Report

 

Inshore fishing action is good red fish are working into schools now instead of singles and doubles. We are seeing schools of 12 to 20 reds in a school and should continue to get into larger schools going into September. Incoming tide seems to produce a better bite with the reds, live or fresh cut bait is doing the trick. I like to use live white bait and fresh cut mullet for cut bait. Rig a 25 pound leader and a 2/0 circle hook look for ...
