Hernando Fishing Report

Hernando Beach fishing report. 
June is here and that means its grouper time, here along the nature coast we have some of the best shallow water grouper fishing in the entire state of florida. Our target depths is 6-12 feet of water, incoming tide is producing the better bite with gags. Live pilchards free line on a 60 pound leader and 5/0 circle hook and a stout rod we use a 8 foot teramar XXH with a finn nor leathal 80 rigged with 50 pound power pro line. anchor up current well away from the structure and slowly chum some live baits. Send a bait or two back to the rock and be ready for the hit. In this shallow water the grouper will fight all the way back to the boat so be ready. We give each rock 15-20 minutes to get a bite going if there is no bite in that time move. Along with the gags we are catching some big cobia on the same rig.
