Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on April 21, 2020

Growing up in a commercial fishing community, sometimes it’s easy to forget how hard men and women work to make a living from the Gulf waters.

I’ve found that you will never get rich, and the rewards are far between hardships, but this life is very fulfilling for those who will have it no other way.

One of our local blue crabbers had a tough day this week. He was caught in the river during a tornado and had his boat picked up and flipped over!

A local homeowner ran their boat out and picked him up and got him to the dock.

A local shrimper helped him right the vessel and get it on the trailer.

The crabber drained the outboard, got it running and replaced his safety gear, then readied the vessel for work in the morning.

Three boxes of blue crab were lost back to the river but with his can-do spirit, it’s back to work. 

When you’re fishing for trout on the big tides, the best spots are coastal bays and passes.

If it is low water and calm conditions, the nearshore waters out at 10 feet is a good choice.

Redfish are eating live pinfish on high water and snook around the same western points.

High incoming tide will be in the afternoon this weekend.
