Hernando Beach to Chassahowitzka

Capt. Larry Roderick
August 10, 2007
Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Stillwaters of Summer

Today, the water was like a mirror. Every wake or ripple from a fish swimming near the top of the water could easily be seen from great distance. It made sight fishing very easy. Todays charter, Laura and Tara Black, mother and daughter from Tampa, caught a variety of fish on an all day trip. Trout, ladyfish, small gag grouper, catfish, bluefish, sea bass, Key West grunts, small black tipped sharks and a 5 foot wide leopard ray kept us busy. We fished the flats off Chassahowitzka point and out to 14 foot of water.

Yesterday, my son and I took advantage of an early morning incoming tide and fished the backwaters of Chassahowitzka River. The sun was barely up and we were fishing the outside islands, throwing top water mirror lures and Castaic jerky Js. Within an hour, we caught and released 3 slot redfish, 2 large trout, and several 3 pound+ yellow tailed jacks.

The day before I caught a flats slam north side of the Hernando Beach channel. The sea trout, snook and redfish were all caught on white Castaic jerky J lures.

A word of caution-be sure during these hot days to consume plenty of water or Gatorade. 30+ sun block, polarized sunglasses and a hat are also a must. Get out and enjoy the fishing, but most of all be safe.

Tight lines and screaming drags, Captain Larry Roderick. (352) 835-3785 www.flatsslamfishingcharters.com 8/10/07
