Hernando Beach Fishing Report.

 

Fall is in the air the early mornings are nice and cool but heating up quickly giving us a nice taste of Fall. The fishing is just epic and will only get better. 

 

Red fish are schooling up in large numbers 15 to 30 fish in a school. Mid incoming and first part of the outgoing tide is producing a great red fish bite. Live green backs rigged with a 25 pound floralcarbon leader in 1/0 to 2/0 circle hook is my go to inshore set up. 

 

Snook season is here and the snook bite is great, we are catching over 2 dozen snook every day with some monster 35+ inch snook mixed in. Live green backs is the best bait for snook hands down. Any moving tide is producing a good bite, target points and rocks with a good water flow cast baits up current and hold on. 

 

Trout action is great in 3 to 5 feet of water. Soft plastics and hard body lures work great. Mirrolure little jons in white, chartreuse, and root beer are my favorite colors. Top water plugs such as the spook jr and skitter walks are great surface baits. 

 

Shallow water grouper fishing is really heating up we are catching some nice gags on plugs and dead bait in 10 to 13 feet. High outgoing tide is producing the better bite. 

 

Book your trips asap for a awesome fall fishing action.
