Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on October 5, 2020

A week’s worth of tropical weather may be in the Big Bend forecast, keeping off-shore anglers eyeing the skies. Although when fishing for gag grouper, running out deep may not be necessary with the cooling water temperatures.

Shallow water grouper fishing is getting better, with some keepers being caught by lucky trout anglers around rocks in 4 feet of water. Lucky is the best way to look at it, but for more certain targeting, start out at the 12-foot mark. Live pinfish, sardines, and the shallow running plug will get the bite. 

Snook are in transition from the outside keys to the creek mouths, passes, and rivers. High outgoing tides are best and structures like deep rocky shorelines, down trees, and docks, are good spots to fish. One of my favorite color combinations is a glow soft body with a chartreuse jighead.

A few tripletail are hanging on the buoys or markers and eating live shrimp under a float. Big incoming tide helps push more tripletail in.

High incoming tide will be in the morning this weekend.
