Hernando County, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Hernando beach

Fall is here and the fish are on a feeding frenzy. As our nights get cooler the water temperature will slowly be dropping making for some of the best fishing we have to offer all year. Inshore the red fish are schooling up a good numbers 10 - 30 fish in a pod. Live green backs or pin fish are the bait of choice. Fish a moving tide for best action. Snook are also chewing good you will find these silver bullets around mangroves and points with a good current flow, live green backs rigged with a 30 pound leader is all you need. Trout are in our shallow waters 2 to 5 feet on grass flats and rock bars, live green backs or mirr o lures 17 mr plugs are great trout baits.

Now for our shallow water grouper action is great we have a bunch of gag grouper inside of 9 miles making for a short boat ride and you are on the fish. Big live pin fish or green backs are my go to baits for grouper. We also use a lot of plugs such as the Rapala FMAG 18 in a few colors, mullet, red head white body, orange, and fire tiger and very good plugs for grouper.
