Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on March 24, 2020

All is awesome fishing on the western Gulf!

The Big Bend is rockin’ out with trout, redfish, snook, jacks, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, tripletail, sea bass, and the ever sporty ladyfish.

Now that’s just what’s happening inshore.

Out deeper is some good mangrove snapper, kingfish and cobia action.

Inshore incoming high tide is the best bite. Some of the best soft plastics are the glow 5.5 (305) D.O.A. jerk baits and MirrOlure LiL Johns in glow or watermelon redflake. The best spots have been the Spoil Banks, west points of Ozello and west points of Chassahowitzka. 

For cobia out deeper, go to structures like old towers, markers wrecks, and high profile rocks.

Heavy spinning tackle that can cast some distance with a live pinfish for bait will catch the surface cruising cobia or just having it prepared when fishing the rock piles can make success happen.

High incoming tide will be early morning or late evening this weekend.
