Crystal River And Homosassa Fishing REport
04/09/14 8:12 PM
Capt Kyle Messier

Life is Good here along the Nature Coast of Florida as the windy days of March are long gone and the sunny beautiful days of April are on the horizon. Over the last couple of weeks the Gulf Coast waters have been mired with windy yet gorgeous weather. Although this may sound like an interesting weather combination the southerly breezes actually have helped jump start the push of many migratory species ...full report


Crystal River And Homosassa

Capt Kyle Messier

March has always been a month Nature Coast anglers look forward to as it symbolizes the beginning of our Spring Season. Spring is highlighted as a time of year when many migratory birds start making their trips back north but it’s also a time to look to the water as many fish species begin returning to the bountiful feeding grounds found along the inshore waters of Crystal River and Homosassa.  ...full report

Tampa Bay Mar 16 Fishing Report Spring fishing has been very good off the mangrove studded shore lines of Anna Maria. March is typically one of our very best months for flats fishing and so far it has lived up to expectations. The Snook, Redfish and Trout fishing has been explosive. Snook fishing has been the best of all. I can honestly say I am even surprised with the number of large Snook ...full report

anna maria island fishing

Tampa Bay Jan 21 Fishing Report Well we finally got into our winter fishing patterns. I say finally because it can be really tough fishing when the fish get stuck in that limbo stage somewhere between their winter patterns and somewhere between the springs patterns. The biggest problem is when the water temp lingers in the mid 60s; it just scatters the fish because they’re not sure where they ...full report


Hernando Beach

Captain Keith Tomlinson

Our area of the Nature Coast has continued to have a lot of cold fronts move through making it difficult to get on the water. We are getting brief \\\"windows\\\" to get out and fish. The fish have been hard to find at times with the night\\\'s dropping into the 40\\\'s and then getting up into the high 60\\\'s during the day. The winter low tides are also anglers need to plan ...full report

HERNANDO LAKE In Hernando Fl
02/21/13 2:36 PM
caseycourterier

I am new to the area, and have not had much time to fish the lake, but in the past three trips I have been killing the jumbo Bluegills and Black Crappie. I am originally from Northern Michigan so that's what we call them. I think down here they may be called Bream and Specs, I'm not sure though. On 2/15/13 I caught 12 gills the largest on was 12.5 inches long and 6.75 inches from top to bottom. ...full report


Anclote Fishing Pier

We took our kayak out on the Anclote River for some morning fishing. Bites were steady from 6:30 AM until 8:30 AM. We were landing keeper Mangrove Snappers with live shrimp on a cork. We also landed a small Flounder and 6lbs. Sheepshead using Gulp® Sand Fleas on a red jig. From 8:30AM until 10:30AM, action stopped dead, other than pinfish and other small fish stealing our bait. As we were reeling ...full report


Venice South Jetty To Englwood

My clients in the Venice beach area have brought news of Blacktips along the beaches. The largest one this week I have seen was 3 feet long, caught on live shrimp. Large Flounder, the biggest one 20 inches are also along the beaches. The best technique I know and heard used this week was using pieces of squid cut into strips and then threaded onto a jig head, bounced off the bottom with a lift-pause-reel, ...full report

Richie27" Snook6/30/11 Caspersons BeachThe Snook have been hitting on shrimp, Pinfish, small white jigs as well as top water baits during the mornings & throughout the afternoon. Early evening, watch near rock piles and lighted areas such as bridge bumpers where these fish have been holding. Top water baits resembling small Baitfish are the most effective for night time. For Redfish, outgoing ...full report


Pasco County Florida

ESalt

Pasco County waters have been heating up, with a number of King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Trout being caught in virtually any depth of water. The tides have been strong, and so has the bite on live and artificial baits. Movement of the bait has been the key to targeting different species. Faster movements with flashy baits will produce the Kings and Spanish. Slower movement on the top ...full report
