Fishing Report: Hernando Beach Gulf Grouper Deep Sea fishing Report
Great grunt fishing with superb Black Sea Bass catches lately in the gulf water west of Hernando Beach. We are catching a wonderful assortment of the previously mentioned fish on every trip we have been on this February. Mostly cut bait like squid, spot tail pinfish, and mullet are working well. Chunks of these fish used on a drop shot type rigs have really been productive. The use of multiple hooks can increase you catch exponentially. It is easy to catch 3 at a time; however why would you really want to? One at a time on light tackle is fun. Loosen your drag a little and have fun catching Grunts. Grunts are great to eat, when fried some people prefer them over grouper. Either way they are fun to catch and there is no shortage of grunts anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico reefs west of Hernando Beach.
