Hernando Today Florida Fishing Report for: Hernando County, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico.

By Capt. Frank Bourgeois
www.alwaysfishing.com

Backwater-to five miles out, inshore-to twelve miles out, offshore November clocks fall back but the fishing goes forward.November has traditionally been one of the hottest months of the year to fish. If history repeats itself watch out for large line stretching grouper in shallow water. This good shallow water fishing should last from November till after Christmas. On recent trips we have boated grouper in as little as eight feet of water to sixty feet of water. At this time of year the only thing that harms the fishing is the weather. Trolling is only good in the deeper water when you get out of the floating grass. I have been loading up on the grouper fishing frozen baits in the stained waters and on pin fish in the clear water. If you want to increase your catches try using buck tails on spinning equipment. Along with the grouper we have been also catching snapper, trigger fish and some nice sea bass. The white grunts are very big at this time of the year and believe me those that eat fish will always take a mess of white grunts home for a meal. The king mackerel have been following the bait schools and if your going out for offshore fishing you will see the schools of bait everywhere. I have found that the bait is bunched up around the floating grass. Trolling is about impossible.

I have been catching the mackerel either on the bottom while fishing for grouper or floating a Cajun Thunder with about six foot of mono leader tied to Tyger Leader then a circle hook tied to that. The new Tyger Leader is plastic coated stainless leader which you can tie a knot in or use a lighter to melt it together. A word of advice always use a wire leader of some kind while fishing for mackerel, yes you can catch a mackerel without a leader, your chances are surely increased in catching a mackerel with a wire leader attached to your line.

Keep a tight line till next time.
