Fishing Report for Homosassa, Florida

Homosassa - Saltwater Fishing Report

East Winds Gives This Captain Writers Cramp

Hi ya'll, not much happening; just a bunch of east wind. This is crap to fish in. But we have managed to do ok.

On Friday afternoon March 23rd Bill and Marcie Buck of St. Louis enjoyed some pretty good redfishing along with their daughter Julie and son-in-law, Tom. We left from MacRae’s at 2:00 P.M. to catch the afternoon high tide.

We played with a few trout first waiting for the water to get right. Winds have been out of the east for more than a week causing some tough conditions in the minds of most guides including myself. On the west coast we have a saying when the wind is out of the east, the catching is the least.

We overcame those conditions on this day as the last spot of their four hour trip produced some fun and rod bending action. Some of the reds were big enough to pull the drag out and make it sing a bit.

The group kept their redfish and released several each. About 20 were caught in the period of an hour. The Bucks’ always enjoy the nature part of the tour that always includes an array of birds with white pelicans and blue herons being top rated to see.

On Thursday March 22nd David and Royal Robbins also of St. Louis enjoyed a successful day on the water. Again it is all about getting the water right this time of year. The first half of the day only produced a mackerel, bluefish and a few smaller fish like rock bass and lizardfish. After a lunch break, the trip back out proved to be a trout catching event for both David and Royal.

Royal landed 4 nice spotted sea trout between 18-21 inches. David did equally as well and it was really a toss up on who’s was bigger. An even dozen trout were kept for a fish fry. Mrs. Wainwright would prepare back at the house on the river.
