Hernando Beach INSHORE fishing report

Capt. Keith Tomlinson
January 31, 2009
Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

With the cold water temperatures and these stiff cold winds out of the north it has been difficult to get out and find fish. The days I have been out the BITE has been decent considering the elements. Jenkins Creek has been producing trout that are hitting small pinfish and shrimp placed under a popping cork. A variety of jigs and bucktails have worked also. We have seen a few snook but getting them to bite has been a challenge. Out at Cutters rock the blue fish bite is excellent on shrimp and small silver spoons. Aripeka area is holding redfish that are being caught on cutbait and a variety of lures as long as they are worked slow!!
Lure selection is important but don't forget to try a variety when on the water. Not only try a variety of colors (gold,brown,white) but try a variety of lures(spoons,jigs,lures) and use them a variety of ways (fast,slow,really slow). When you find something that works STICK WITH IT until it stops working. If the lures are not working then do not forget to try a variety of baits (cut bait,white bait,pinfish,shrimp)!

Grouper season pretty much closes until April but there are still plenty of fish available to catch. I would rather catch a 26" redfish on 12 lb. test anyway but hey, inshore is my love. Best wishes and tight lines!!
