Homosassa - Saltwater Fishing Report
Well, it will not be too long before Mrs. 217-pound Poon and her tag along(s) will grace us with their silver armor and glorious bodies.
Right now we are catching some trout, macks, blues and pomps. B-o-r-i-n-g when poon fever takes hold.
Yours Truly landed a couple of seabass on an 8-weight today and one measly trout. Well, it was more of a scouting trip for the elusive silver kings. The masses might be a little later than normal this year. I hope this is not the case.
Have trailer will travel south if needed. Heard two good reports that Key West is on fire.
Not much to write home about here except for the delicious shore dinners we have been preparing for our guest.
Redfish are hit and miss but soon we will see plenty as the full moon approaches.
Sorry I do not have any cobia reports as of today. Any day now we should start seeing some.
Limits of trout are being taken in 6-foot depths using a 52-11 Mirrolure, Cotee Jigs and DOA glow shrimp. Bass Assassins are also tricking the larger fish with the longer jerk baits in white, new penny and electric chicken.
Spanish mackerel are coming in by the droves near the Humps, out in the Bombing Range too but the thickest schools were reported south west of Marker 2 in 10 to 12 feet of water. Find the birds and you will find the macks.
Homosassa Fishing Forecast:
West Winds bring warmer water and more bait and the predator fish are on their tails. Spring is getting ready to bust wide open. The air still feels a little chilly in the mornings but look to be stripping off that jacket or sweatshirt by 10 am. Bring plenty of chum for the mackerel and tip your lures with pices of shrimp or buy the Gulp and get hammered every cast by some kind of fish. Save the remains as tip it, it works as well as shrimp tips and stay on the hook better.
Tarpon when they arrive otherwise trout, macks and blues
