Fishing Report: Fishing on the Nature coast has been a bit of a challenge. As in all summer outings you must try to be comfortable while youíre fishing. Venturing out in the morning hours is my preferred time to go fishing. The evening hours has proved to be a bit of trouble.
I do not go in the Gulf when there is even a slight rumble from our afternoon thunder storms. Now mid-day with ninety-five degree temperatures the only advices I can offer is fish slow and deep and bring plenty of water.
Fishing Hudson and south is the area I fish for redfish and snook in the summer. Plenty of both are caught but I usually catch my share of small fish in the daytime hours but good size snook in the evenings. I have to admit if you can throw a cast net your chances of catching bait like whitebaits is your best baits for catching fish in the summer.
Lots of small trout are being caught around the grass beds with Spanish mackerel chopping off your lures if you donít use a wire leader like tyger leader which is a stainless stranded wire with soft plastic coating, making it feel like mono. Just off the Cottee River with George Lytle from spring Hill we did very well catching Cobia.
North to Hudson I have been doing well catching redfish in Fillmons Bayou as well as trout and Black tip Sharks just west of Hudson. Just west of Hernando Beach at a place called Richardsonís reef I have been doing real well on Spanish mackerel. Bayport is where I launch most of the time I have been fishing for sharks and good size trout in about thirteen to fourteen feet of water.
Chassahowitzka fishing has been not bad even as the water temperature rises. I have been fishing the many pot holes the area has to offer. Salt water Assassin has a new plastic shrimp I have been using in the pot holes and doing extremely well on them. Homosassa and Crystal River is always doing well except for the scalloping this year has been off.
Tight lines till next time
