Redfish are famous flats prowlers -- known for working in schools in shallow water in every corner of the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Keys, and the East Coast from Florida to Virginia. But, you don’t have to be in 6 inches of water, out on a flat, to catch redfish. There’s a whole other world of exciting redfish action in the backcountry creeks and rivers -- especially in the Homosassa area.
We just marked the start of Fall, and with that comes the outlook for fishing in Homosassa, Florida during this time of year. Locals actually look forward to this time of year as the temps get more comfortable and the waters get a little less busy. But what does that mean for the fishing?
Planning a fishing excursion can mean many different things to different anglers. Maybe you’re flying to exotic locations catching species that top your bucket list, or maybe you’re booking that offshore fishing charter targeting sweet tasting seafood or maybe it’s several days in your own backyard that you’re looking for. Perhaps those plans include your family or maybe it’s just a guys’ trip with a handful of your closet fishing buddies. Well regardless of what YOUR ideal fishing excursion may be, let me tell you how to have a truly unique experience here in the most beautiful areas in the world: Homosassa. Oh, and did I mention that it’s a world class fishery to boot? I’m talking about booking your own private island right here in the gorgeous waters of Homosassa with Southern Slam Outfitters.
