Homosassa Fishing Report:
Redfish in the keys, action on the near shore rocks and tarpon in the middle. Red fishing has been good lately on the incoming tide in-between Homosassa and Ozello. The western facing points have some fish on them but most are small with a couple keepers over the 18” mark mixed in the school. The larger slot size reds are being caught on Eppinger Rex gold spoons by covering more mangrove shoreline during the incoming tide.
On the near shore rock piles out to 12 feet, a good mixed bag of sea trout, black sea bass, blue fish, spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper and grunts can be caught on jigs. The best areas have been north west of the Bird Rack, west or south west of marker #2 from Homosassa channel. Best jig tails have been the silver mullet D.O.A. C.A.L. shad or MirrOlure LIL Johns in bourbon. The jig head that I use is a chartreuse D.O.A. 1/8 oz. with a short shank hook.
To the south of Chassahowitzka Point there is a good push of tarpon. Daylight is one of the best times to see them rolling but if it is a calm day on the incoming tide you can see tarpon most of the time. High incoming tide will be mid morning this weekend with a full moon.
