What's Biting in Homosassa Right Now?
March 2018 Homosassa Fishing Action
March this year is predicted to be a bit better than usual. When we have prolonged or colder than usual winters, when the fish come back - they come back hungry. We saw the start of this last month and plan to continue to see this trend throughout the rest of spring.
Redfish are still popping off with a great bite and in great sizes. The winner this month will be the sea trout bite however. This is the month that sea trout come out on the grass flats with a vengeance.
Another great species that will start making appearances is cobia. Though not as prolific as redfish and sea trout, if you want a shot at a cobia - this is the month to start getting that chance.
April 2018 Outlook
I know I just sold you on redfish, sea trout, and cobia for March - but April will see even higher activity with the three species. This month begins a 3 month pattern of the absolute best fishing for them. Making entry will also be snook and some resident tarpon - in small numbers (but we are getting there!).
