Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

With this week’s rainy conditions, the warm Gulf waters should cool down enough to create a great sea trout bite.

The trout I’ve caught lately have been in near-shore waters in about 3 to 4 feet near bars and rocks. Two popular areas for these are Gomez Rocks, bars in front of the Ft. Island Beach and Black Rock, bars by Crawl Key. The best bait has been a glow soft plastic with a chartreuse 1/8th oz. jig head.

The inshore rocks have been producing some big spanish mackerel, grunts, mangrove snapper and some flounder. The spanish are hitting free-lined shrimp, and for the rest of the fish, use a live shrimp on the bottom pinned to a 1/8 oz. jighead.

Cobia are pushing throug,h so be sure to check the markers on the ride out. High profile rocks and wrecks are the best places to find cobia.

High incoming tide will bee late afternoon this weekend.
