Homosassa - Saltwater Fishing Report

This was one heck of a very memorable fishing trip. We had two beautiful days. Visiting from Iowa was our son, John and his wife Tanisha. My daughter, Courtney, Myself and Capt. Randy Cribbs made a boat full.

With the tide nearly high, my son, John landed his first of many more snook. These were 28 & 32-inches. This was a special treat because they are not as common in these waters as trout and redfish.

After two hours the trout started hitting our cork rigs and the 4 of us each landed a trout ending with a good mess for a fish fry. Now the pressure was off our Native Guide.

At one honey spot, Our Guide let the Powerpole down close to a small island made of limestone. On the first cast, the largest trout of the day was landed in 2 feet of water by my daughter-in-law, Tanisha. using a live pinfish. The trout looked to be 5-pounds and put up a great fight. We let the female go(the fish.) All my kids can cast and don't need any help and that is really cool for the guide and their Dad:-)

Heading down the river, we could have been anywhere in the jungle world as our guide plyed down the river to the huge body of water called the Gulf of Mexico.

On the way in we saw an eagle, several manatees and a school of 4 dolphin. They were corralling a small school of mullet which jumped to evade capture. In 1-foot deep muddy water it was no use for the mullet to get away. With their built-in sonar, they raised their heads out of the water a caught them in mid air. It was a sight to see. Detecting us, they scurried off like rockets, only to turn around and follow and lead the boat, rolling the whole while. It was spectacular.

The weather was perfect. No too hot. Sunny and blue skies. Plenty of fishing fun. We succeeded because my kids can cast and know how to fish and of our very experienced guide, Captain Randy Cribbs. 352-464-4867 Tell him I sent you.(Pictured Right)
