winter Hernando County fishing

Hernando Beach - Freshwater Fishing Report

Welcome to winter fishing in Florida. There are a lot of opportunities to catch fish here in Florida. Let's start in Salt Water. The creeks and rivers are loaded with fish as most of them contain freshwater springs producing warm seventy two degree water allowing the fish a happy environment to eat and stay at the comfort zone they like. For instance fly fisherman can catch lots of mangrove snappers in all the rivers here on the Nature coast. Boaters with real shallow drafts boats can catch snook, redfish and sea trout deep in the back waters. Flats fishing, from shore to about ten miles out here on the Nature Coast, in the winterů is very hard to find fish, as the water temperature is not stable. Rapid changes in water temperature causes the fish discomfort so they either go to the backwater of deeper offshore where the cold nights will not affect the water temperatures. Deep water fishing is best at this time of year for most boaters.
Bass fishing is interesting as the last days of 2015 produced many Bass but the cold has hit the whole country changing everyone's patterns. We can only wait till conditions settle down to catch fish regularly. Fish will react to slow baits in the back waters or rattle baits in the morning offshore in the lakes.
