Inshore Gulf fishing

Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Welcome to my world. Lucky for us we have backwater to fish for. In our area the wind has kept me from offshore fishing. Thankfully we are still catching trout in seven to ten foot of water in the Anclote area from the power plant to Anclote Island. To my surprise along with the trout came giant Sea Bass which were caught on jigs.

For some reason the Porpoises are over populating these waters. Thinking out loud… I came to the conclusion we still have clean water here, drawing the porpoises to our food supply. I truly was saddened to see the news stating that water quality is doing poorly due to the oil spill in the northern part of the Gulf…hopefully Mother Nature will fix man's mistakes.

Fishing out of Hudson this past week I brought out the fly rods. My clients caught jacks, lady fish, lizardfish and Sea Trout. The redfish and snook were just too spooky in the clear water. Bayport fishing is still about the same fishing north to Homosassa, we are catching redfish, trout, bluefish, large sea bass and grouper, most caught on Saltwater Assassins. The grass floating makes it hard to fish with lures that have treble hooks, so I do not try, I bet if you did use your favorite lure you would catch fish also.

Here is a report from Rodger Maler and my fly fishing club The Tarpon Coast Fly Fishers. (Ray Cannata and Jon Markey). A short story... Jon hooked a big snook the day before and broke it off. Ray caught the same fish the next day with Jon's fly still in his jaw! A great trip put together by Jon...Many thanks to him!
Well till next time (Tight Lines)
