HOMOSASSA FISHING/ DIVING REPORT DECEMBER 2011

INSHORE FISHING REPORT FOR HOMOSASSA

The trout are spread out, although most of the larger trout
are either in the creeks or off on the deeper flats.  The redfish are on the inner islands and
creeks; look in the potholes on low tide for small schools of reds.  There is still a lot of action on the inshore
rock piles; they are loaded with small grouper, sea bass, trout, and
Sheapshead.  While fishing the inshore
rocks use live shrimp or gulp for the best results.  The fishing is starting to heat up in the springs
as the water temp on the flats drops below the water temp in the springs, the
snapper and Snook have already started to show up and the trout and reds won’t
be too far behind them.

 

OFFSHORE REPORT FOR HOMOSASSA AND CRYSTAL RIVER

Amber Jack and Red Grouper are what to look for
this time of year, as it is about all you can keep, unless you’re willing to
jump in and shoot some Hogs or Mangrove Snapper and the rocks from 40 and
out.  I have been catching some nice
Amber Jack on wrecks and large rocks deeper than 55ft. And the Red Grouper are
all over the rocks and live bottom from 50ft and out.  Spear fishing has been really good on pretty
much any structure from 40ft and out; expect to find large hogs on almost every
spot.
