Homosassa Fishing Report February 8th 2018

Spring is in the air ! It's been a nice change in the weather these last couple weeks .With water temps rising the bite is getting better every day . The red fish are still in there holes in the backcountry every trip has been producing many fish over slot with a whole lot of reds within the slot .  Live shrimp free lined back to the holes has been working the best, soft plastics are also holding their own working them real slow in the holes . The trout are also being caught right along  side of the reds in the backcountry . Trout on the outside are really starting to heat up ! Working the yellow bottom on a incoming tide has been the trick this week throwing Miro-dines is my absolute favorite way of fishing them this time of year. Fishing them with a 1/8 ounce jig head with a white or a watermelon soft plastic will also get the job done . Sheephead are all over the nearshore rocks with limits coming in everyday. They also are quick to take shrimp and jigs . Set up upcurrent and set a chum bag this will get them in the mood . I Have have found that a outgoing tide has been producing the best bite with the sheephead. Tight Lines Captain Carey      Southern Slam Outfitters
