Fishin Is Good

Yankeetown Fishing Guide Captain Nick BozmanFishing off the Levy/Citrus County coasts has been good over the past few weeks, although most of the fish are on the move as fall begins and water temps drop.

Recently the larger ‘Gator Trout” aka big speckled trout have moved from the extremely deep flats to the more shallow and warmer waters. Look for them around the outermost oyster bars of the Withlacoochee reefs.

The Red Fish have also been frequenting these spots, typically just before and after the high tide. I’ve heard several reports of good sized Black Drum being taken in the skinny water (airboat country) around Porpoise Point.

The Red Fish are preferring cut Mullet, fished on the bottom, and the Trout can’t resist that new penny jig fished under a Cajun Thunder rattling cork.

Good Luck & ‘Til next time…see you on the Gulf!
