Hernando County, Florida cooling down

Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing on the Nature coast is a lot of fun when you get the weather to cooperate. The tidal movements will determine if you're going to have great fishing or not.
Fast moving tides at this time of year tend to make the fish go to their hiding places to get out of the way of fast moving tides. If you have good fishing spots located were fish can hide and not expel a lot of energy like cuts and passes use them instead of fishing open water. Near shore Hernando beach, the trout bite is great one day and bad on another. Bayport to Homosassa is producing large and small trout, great red fishing and surprisingly decent snook fishing.

On slow moving tides I have been doing great in the open waters about nine miles out of Hernando Beach for large sea trout and shallow water grouper. On fast moving tides I have been working the underwater barrier islands trying to locate their ambush spots. Some large schools of redfish are approaching many of our fishing areas as well as snook harboring around the mouths of cannels. To the south of Hernando Beach we are catching reds, snook and larger trout but still in the deeper water. Marker 10 which most people relate to that fish the area off of Hudson ... (you can locate it on any chart)... fish all the shallow rocks in the area of Marker 10 you might catch a shark and some keeper grouper. Crystal River is about the same except some nice silver trout are being caught

I have been getting a lot of e mails asking if I am going to stay in the offshore business, (Yes I am) but looking for someone to buy and join Always Fishing doing the offshore trips with my guidance and clients as well as their own. Call me for details.
