Crystal River And Homosassa Fishing Report
09/19/14 4:21 PM
Capt Kyle Messier

The Shallow Water flats off Crystal River, Ozello and Homosassa will be the epicenter this month for some of the best inshore fishing and scalloping action found anywhere in Florida. With limited amounts of rain and a majority of our days featuring beautiful sunny weather now is as good of a time as any to visit the Nature Coast. Not to mention with our area featuring over 20 different targetable ...full report

Tampa Bay August 21 Fishing Report The heat is on, that’s for sure, but so is the fishing. It can be tough this time of year to last a whole day of fishing. Sometimes when the sea breeze comes to a standstill it can feel as if you’re melting. The good news is it’s not often that we don’t have at least a light sea breeze by mid day and the even better news is the heat doesn’t seem ...full report


Crystal River And Homosassa Fishing Report

Capt Kyle Messier

Looking back on every fishing report I have ever wrote for both Red Hot Fishing Charters and Florida Fishing Adventures I have always found myself remaining extremely positive in regards to Florida weather. Unfortunately, that streak of positive talk will be out the window for this September 2014 fishing report. Since the start of September both the meteorologists and myself can not quite figure ...full report

Anna Maria Island July Fishing Report Wow! Do we have a lot of Tarpon and I mean a lot. There are Tarpon by the thousands in passes, on the beaches and in the bay. If you can’t find a Tarpon to cast to in five minutes you must be blind, they are everywhere. We had a great week on Tarpon. It’s really nice to get out of bed in the morning, hopping into the boat just knowing you are going ...full report

Happy Independence Day to all! With the passing of one of the most celebrated holidays in the country comes another celebration for the openings of both Gag Grouper Season and Scallop Season.

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

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
