Spring on the Nature Coast

Capt. Frank Bourgeois
March 13, 2014
Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Mother Nature is confused this year. Seems we are not the only one fighting with cold fronts. The fish are confused with the water temperature changes. I was fishing in Crystal River last week and the fishing was wonderful but Sunday the water temperature changed so much the fish buried up again. In my experience I found the fish are OK with cold water if the temperature stays the same but when it changes a lot they don't eat.

Inshore fishing in the area of Chasawiska has been wild if you like catching mackerelů trips with over 50 fish has been caught. The trout fishing has been slow in the deeper water due to the mackerel but inshore near the mouths of the rivers fishing for trout has been much better. Redfish started moving out of their winter haunts, then returned very fast when the water dropped to fifty seven degrees. As I am typing this report the weatherman on TV said we might even get as low as the upper thirties on the Nature Coast. I guess we will just have to wait a few day's for the weather to settle.

Offshore fishing is usually more stable as the water temperature in the deeper waters just about stay's the same. Most fish finders only check the surface. We have been catching offshore non keeper redfish (too large), sharks, grouper, sea bass and gray snapper better known as white grunts. Let me tell you a story about white grunts. If your boat is worth $100,000 then they change the name to gray snapper, up to $500,000 they are silver snapper and over $1,000,000 boats, they become platinum snapper. You can (LOL now) Remember have funů
