Hernando Fishing Report

Capt. Josh Fritz
September 6, 2016
Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well hurricane Hermine is gone leaving a lot of flooding and damage to the Nature Coast of Florida. I'm sure a lot of you anglers are wondering how the waters are. Well the water is black close to shore from all the fresh water run off and there is a bunch of floating debris from docks, trees, buckets, styrofoam, offshore past the tri pod is murky with more floating debris.

Sunday I did a charter and honestly was not expecting much activity from all the rain and winds but the bite was very good. My clients caught over 20 snook, 4 red fish and I lost count on how many Jack's we caught. It will take a week or so for the waters to be back to crystal clear. The water temperature is now 80.4 degrees and the fish are active, red fish are hanging close to structure rocks, oysters incoming tide was the best action with live green backs and pin fish. Snook are holding around pot holes and mangrove shorelines live green backs did not last long and the snook were on them. Trout are holding in 3 to 7 feet on grass flats, live green backs free lined or under a float is a sure bet. Top water plugs and subsurface lures like the mirr o dine 17mr in the 808 and 50 color works great to. Spanish mackerel are holding around the shallow rocks along with a bunch of tasty grunts and mangrove snapper. We are catching grouper but we will see a better bite with the gags as the water cools down. Book your trip ASAP.
