Homosassa Inshore Fishing Report with Captain Toney

By Captain William Toney Posted on April 7, 2020

In my line of work I am very fortunate, blessed, and work hard at what I do. To be able to spend most of my waking hours outside has helped me to be able to see some exceptional wildlife on the Big Bend.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve witnessed some cool stuff on the water and land that I feel is only because us “humans” have had less of an impact on the environment recently than any other time I can remember in my life.

One thing is noise. It’s so quiet.  Jets are less frequent in the sky and traffic hum is nonexistent. I know this won’t last forever but it’s necessary, and in their own strange way the fish, fowl, and fur like it too.

Heck, I even had a wild hen turkey at my boatyard near the river in downtown Homosassa!   

Trout are out at the 8-foot mark near the Foul Area.

Redfish are eating live pinfish north of the Homosassa River and gold spoons south of the river.

A few triple tail are showing up on the nearshore buoys.

Offshore keep an eye out for cobia heading north.

Incoming high tide will be in the afternoon this Saturday, and Sunday is Easter.
