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!

It’s Fair Fishin Off The Levy & Citrus County Coast

slick-charters-saltwater-galmour-shotFishing off the Levy/Citrus County Coast remains fair for this time of year. Lots of Sea Trout in the flats, although the majority have been small.

During the summer months most of the larger specs caught are in the deeper waters. We typically fish in 7 to 10 feet of water, and although the numbers are down, the size is up.

The Redfish bite has slowed a bit over the past few weeks, but I expect it to improve as we approach the next new moon.

The Scallops have been a big hit this year. Plenty for everyone, and reports of limits being caught in just a few hours. Try around the bird rack off of Homosassa.

For best results get out on the water as early as possible, during the extreme tide days.

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