Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney
On the Big Bend if we had to pick one tide to fish on, I know I would choose the incoming. There is a time when it can be too much water, like this past week’s tropical system. That tropical system put some extreme high water on the inshore coastline.
As we push into our summer high tides, especially around the full and new moons, incoming tides can help redfish and snook become out-of-reach to anglers. They will move into the interior of a key for the safety and cooler water that the shade of a mangrove provides.
I like to position my vessel so the moment that the tide turns, I can intercept the fish as they make their way to the comfort of the key. It is a short window but can be the most productive part of the incoming tide during the summer.
On the offshore waters, it could be the same scenario except the high profile structures will hold snappers and groupers. They provide protection from rough seas and fast-moving tides.
Last week’s planned Cobia Big Fish Tournament will be held this weekend at Crumps Landing in Homosassa after being canceled last weekend because of weather.
High incoming tide will be early morning this weekend.
