Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on November 12, 2019

We are looking at some significant cooler weather this weekend and that can change up the way we’ve been fishing from earlier in the week.

Strong north winds can blow out most of our inshore waters to some treacherous rocky, shallow, motor-destroying depths.

So how does an angler get their fishing fix?

Well, lucky for us, there are many deep rivers up and down the Big Bend that have fish, shelter, and safe channels. It’s been cool enough to send redfish, snook, trout, black drum, sheepshead, and mangrove snapper to look for warm water. Live shrimp on the bottom is the best bait.   

Each river has its own characteristics, from spring-fed to deep and rocky. The deep stretch near the mouth of the Steinhatchee River is well known for catching winter trout.

Homosassa and Crystal Rivers are well known for winter snook fishing. Even feeder creeks that run off of our major rivers have their own unique structure and fish to catch.

Our tides this weekend will be low and lower with the incoming tide at dark in the morning and dark in the evening.
