Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on April 14, 2020

We have some very good days of fishing ahead of us.

So far every angler has been following the guidelines that have helped to keep our area boat ramps open. Together we can get through this and help keep folks safe.

The nearshore waters around 3 to 6 feet are producing trout. I start each client with a different color soft plastic and see what color is working best. As of late, it’s been glow/gold flake or watermelon red flake, and sometimes even the color of the jighead can make a difference. If there a little chop on the surface do not hesitate to put the jig under a popping cork at about 18″ to 24″. 

Offshore, look for cobia to be moving through on large structures like wrecks, springs, and rockpiles. A heavy spinning outfit with a live pinfish will get the bite.

On this same structure, there will be some mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, grunts, and catch-and-release gag grouper.

High incoming tide will be in the morning this weekend.
