Capt. William Toney/Homosassa Inshore Fishing Charters

March 19, 2014

“Good catches of sheepshead, The spanish language spanish mackerel, pompano, and ocean trout were around the motorboats from the Homosassa Guides Association earlier this week. A couple of sheepshead were caught around the near shoreline rocks to 10 ft water on live shrimp. In my opinion though, they were a couple of left overs out of this winter’s spawn. The ocean trout bite was good around the outgoing tide within the Sugar Bowl area. MirrOlure MirrOdines were the very best baits. The bite continued to be excellent until a couple of fishermen began motoring with the drift from the other motorboats rather than motoring round the fishing fleet and beginning in the eastern finish from the bay. Around the incoming tide the ocean trout bite moved towards the rocky outdoors, western facing points. Once the water covered the rocks by about one foot, the gator trout bite was on. The very best bait was the D.O.A. CAL 5.5 ” jerk bait in glow color,” reviews Capt. William Toney of Homosassa Inshore Fishing Charters (352-621-9284). homosassainshorefishing.com

“The best places for that The spanish language spanish mackerel and pompano were around Billion Dollar Rock within the Homosassa River, the sandy holes in Blue Bay, and St. Martins River. I made use of an Bald eagle Claw lengthy shank hook with fresh shrimp, free lined using the outgoing tide over the deep holes. Because the tide slowed down, we used D.O.A. CAL Shad tails in glow gold hurry to trap a couple of trout round the surrounding houses. High incoming tide a few days ago come in the late mid-day and evening,” Toney reviews.
