Homosassa Inshore Fishing | Last Week of the Year

Entering the last week of the year, things I've accomplished or failed at I always reflect back on at a ritual I've practice since my kids were old enough to open presents at Christmas. After all the paper tearing, box ripping part of the present party is over in the morning, I look forward to burning all the cardboard, paper and non plastic leftovers that usually is in a mound taller then the gifts that held them. I would never burden the garbage man with all that stuff and I find it enjoyable however weird some may think, butterflies be damned. 


The last week of grouper for the fish box is here. Most the offshore guides I've talked to before the warm up were working hard to get a limit. Things should improve because of the weather and getting away from these full moon tides. Depths from 12 to 30 feet are good, anglers have been getting them on trolling plugs, live pinfish and cut mullet. One thing about the cut mullet it will put out more scent in the cold water then most baits. The trout bite will be good if you concentrate on shallow edges of deeper channels and holes. The trout will be sunning in the shallow depths. The river fishing will be good also with live shrimp on the bottom. Sheepshead, mangrove snapper and blackdrum are the most prevalent species.Deep areas on the north sides of the bank are best. Incoming tide will be in the morning this weekend.

    Fishing Boat Houses for Fall Bass

    There are many ways to fish boat house with many different presentations. I have many favorites, but I start with a rattle bait or a square bill, so I can cover water quickly and accurately. Work all the way to the front edge of the walkway coming out from the boat house as many times in the fall the bass are up against rock edges or stone walls.

    Slow Pitch Jigging | The Art of the Presentation

    Slow pitch jigs lift and kick the jigs laterally, like an injured fish struggling to swim upward and away from the bottom prior to wobbling back during the free fall. Predators will instinctively attack an easy meal even if if they do not have the feed bag on. Injured bait fish make random and erratic movements, they dash and stop, dart in irregular directions, shed scales and make flashing actions as they fall to the bottom.

    Fall Muskie Fishing | Collins River with Dwayne Hickey

    Clear water fish respond better to fast moving food in my opinion. Don't give the fish time to investigate, make her think that food is getting away! Shallow crank baits work extremely well using this method also.
