Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on November 25, 2019

Looking at a week of Thanksgiving, we have a lot to be thankful for on the Big Bend; one is a good fishery that must be maintained and protected for our future generations, two is plenty of area for anglers to stretch out and find some space (even on busy weekends), and, three is that it might get cold but we aren’t drilling holes through ice to catch some fish!

Look for trout to be in the creeks near deep water but sunning on the edges during the warmest part of the day. Glow soft plastics with a chartreuse jighead is a good choice of bait.

Redfish are very near the same location and, as I’ve written about in the past, looking for jumping mullet won’t help you find them now. There will be a few mullet jumping here and there but most of them have the spawn on there mind, so, as they school to make the annual run offshore it has nothing to do with a good redfish spot.

I like to fish keys on the incoming high tide that run east and west. The reason is that a key like this will block a north wind and collect the southern sun. Coves with a dark bottom will heat the cool water and create a wintertime bite.

Offshore the gag grouper bite is strong at 30 feet. Live bait or sardines will get the bite.

High incoming tide this weekend will be very early morning or late evening.
