Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney: Catch a Keeper Snook
If you’re looking for good fishing action, head out to the Foul Area. High easterly winds have been the norm on the Big Bend, so close inshore tides can be low and shallow flats can be hard to navigate.
The open waters can take away the worries of running aground and give you more time fishing. Each day is a little different so have a variety of soft plastics in size and color to zero in on the bite. I have each angler start off with a different color, then we start cutting lines or changing colors to the one that is catching the best.
To put a keeper snook in the boat try fishing your way out of the rivers. Docks, blow downs and rocky points can hold snook right in most of our idle zones. On the outside work the small channels around keys or troughs that have been cut around points with the incoming tides. In clear water you can see the fish if they are in a school. A black area that moves slightly is what it will look like. Use a glow jerk bait or MirrOlure MirrOdine to get the bite or a mud minnow.
High incoming tide will be early morning this weekend
