The Trout Are In The Grass Flats

My apologies for the way over due salt water fishing report. Honestly, over the last few months we’ve had few salt water fishing inquiries, likely due to the spill, and or the economy. Fortunately, the fishing in our area was not effected by either.

We made a short re-con trip on Tuesday, 10/12, and found plenty of Trout on the grass flats just north of Yankeetown, although most of them were small. This area just off the Levy County Coast is south of Cedar Key and is well known for Sea Trout, Red Fish, Tarpon, and a wide variety of non-targeted fish.

We concentrated our efforts around “Eleven Prong”, just south of the Waccassasa River entrance, south to the “Trout Stake”. We didn’t set any records but did manage to locate the Trout, and the depth they were feeding in, shallow (between 2 and 4 feet).

I have had a few reports of huge Snook being caught offshore. I plan to check it out in the next few days.

Stay tuned for further updates!

Till next time?see you out there.
Good Luck

Coming Soon a September Improvement

slick-charters-saltwater-glamour-shotRecently, lots of Reds have been caught in a variety of near shore locations up and down the Nature Coast/Big Bend Region.

From Eleven Prong, just south of Wacassasa Bay, to the Homosassa River entrance, reports of good numbers of Reds keep coming in with two things in common, tide and time of day.

The vast majority of these fish have been taken in the early a.m. hours, and just before or after high tide.

I expect that soon the water temps will be decreasing and the fishing in general will be improving.

You can also take a look at last years September Reports to see what was going on then.
