    Homosassa 4/10 it' deep drifting time?

    Well almost drifting time......Today my daughter and grandson joined me as well as my nephew and his son. So it's me a 4 novice fisherman on the boat. I tried to hit the 5' flats and fish corks but it just wasn't happening there other than one trout and a shark. I pulled the plug ten ran out to my south drifting area in 12' and set up with carolina rigs and cut bait. The seabass were so thick that the trout didnt stand a chance but the kids were loving the constant action and when the 30" sharks hit it was a real fire drill and big smiles all around. When the tide changed the trout started to hit. I moved north and there were a few trout up there as well. 4" gulp shrimp on a carolina rig cured the sharks and took some keeper trout and keeper seabass. We moved in on the points to see if the reds were biting and they were but landing them was a bit tough. My nephew Mark did take a nice 23" trout there as well as a couple smaller reds. We all had a blast and caught plenty of fish to boot!

    Great report, I much prefer catching seatrout sans cork.

    Help me settle an argument with a friend, what species of shark are those? I said they're sharpnose but someone I know says they're juvenile blacktips...



    Q: How much fishing equipment can a man have before his wife throws him out?
    A: I do not know for sure; however, I believe that the experiment is almost complete!

    They are Atlantic sharpnose sharks.

    Way to go Kyle.

    Any signs of gumbo in either offshore area?

    Magot you are correct but unfortunately the rib eyes were a bit small...we did manage a couple keepers and now that you mention it I think the seabass are the reason i like this season so much. As for the hat you would really like my son...he fixes the sins you pilots create! (Navy air frame mechanic)
