Homosassa - Saltwater Fishing Report
At 42 degrees on land, you can bet the gulf temps have dropped. The positives to a cold front is much of the water gets blown out, leaving the flats dry and fish scurrying to the holes. Plus trout will stick around a little longer before heading out to spawn.
The negatives are some of the best guides have to sit it out because of the wind. It is simply not safe. But the positive is much needed time off and a Spring break.
Recently, I had the honor to fish with my friend Walt, once again. It was opening day and both of us got into the big snook and jacks using jigs. What an exciting fish to fight.
My guide friend Marrio C. got into them yesterday. "Lots of quality fish for us today. 8 trout and 16 sheepshead with a few small groupers too. 4 of the sheeps were in the 10 pound range. All catch and release except for 2 of the smaller sheepshead that were invited to dinner."
On the fly fishing scene, I have several Fly Fishing classes lined up this week to help new anglers to join the fun way to catch fish.
In freshwater, bass action is heating up in Lake Griffin near Fisherman's Cove in Tavares.
