    Homosassa 2/10 trout and reds with friends

    ariker57 Mark contacted me and asked if I would take him and a couple friends out on the flats fishing during thier stay here in Homosassa. I offered to show them around at the begining of thier trip so they would have an idea where to start when they set out on thier own. We settled on a Friday afternoon trip with Bob and his friends Steve and Craig. They met me dockside at 12:30 ready to fish. All of them were able fisherman so I planed a day of chasing trout with artificials (mirrodines) and maybe a redfish or two. Three great guys with on board made the day a pleasure. We worked the deeper cuts to start while we waited for the tide to come up. The trout were thick and hungry with both slot and sub slot fish comming to the boat on almost every cast. Everybody was in on the action right from the start. When the tide started coming in strong we started looking for the bigger bite. The upper slot and over slot fish were a bit more spread out today but were around with each of my guests catching thier share of larger fish. We noved onto the skinny flats and also took a couple reds one being 20 and the other 16. At the end of the day we kept 12 trout and a redfish. We tossed back several slot trout and countless shorts. Another great day on the bay with some first class folk!

    I always enjoy your post Kyle. My fathers girlfriend has a place on the water in Ozello that I can use anytime. I was thinking of heading up for a weekend in April. Maybe I could hit you up for a place to start like these guys. No secret spots just a nudge in the right direction. If you are ever in the Tampa area I would gladly repay the favor.
