Big Bend Fishing Is Alive And Well!

Instead of “How’s the fishing?”, the first thing most people have inquired about over the last few months has been the disaster in the Gulf, and rightfully so.

It’s hard to turn on the TV or pick up a paper without being reminded of what’s going on, what’s being done about it, and of course, who’s to blame.

Meanwhile, we’ve been experiencing one of the best summer time bites in recent history.

Although the near shore (Redfish) bite has been slow due to high water temps, we’ve had no problem getting our limit of Cobia, Trout, and a variety of non-targeted species a little further out.

The outer markers of the barge canal off the Citrus County coast has produced good numbers, and is an excellent place to troll for Grouper on those hot summer days.

Scallop season is open and I’ve heard reports of good numbers off the Gomez Rocks area near Homossasa.

Yes, fishing on the Nature Coast/Big Bend region is alive and well. “Till next time, see you out there!

Remember, God Loves A Fisherman
Good Luck
