Hernando County, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Hernando Beach

Fishing is HOT… HOT … HOT .. with the cooler weather were getting. It seems fish love the cooler weather just like people do. The Redfish, Trout, Bluefish, Grouper and most species are actively on the move, looking for anything to eat. On a trip yesterday I caught a 26" & 27" Redfish on cut bait, with a high tide, I searched the grass flats in about 1 – 2 foot of water. In this shallow of water, I was able to site cast these fish. This is one of the most exciting ways to fish ( along with a topwater hit ) To see the fish, make a perfect cast, watch the fish come to the bait, take the bait and then the fight is on, is enough to make even the seasoned angle excited ! Don't forget Oct. 5 th is when the crab traps will be dropped, this means thousands of chum will be just off the Nature Coast. I believe this brings many fish closer in, which means Grouper, mackerel, kingfish, cobia and sharks will be all over the nearshore areas. The cooler weather also makes it a lot more comfortable to be on the water, so get out and enjoy what most people only wish they could do.. fish Florida !
