Homosassa Fishing: Ring in Spring 2018

With winter coming to an end, Florida’s version of cabin fever does as well. Though we admittedly love winter for the waterfowl hunting, our true passion lies in the fly and light tackle fishing action that this place is known for. Though good all year, spring and summer bring us aggressive and large sized fish to target. This year, we are already seeing an awesome bite – but everything will only get better. 

As we get into sight fishing for a greater number of large redfish, patrolling the grass flats for gator sea trout, and we even start to get snook back in action among the mangrove systems and spoil islands – one thing we are already getting pumped for this this years coming tarpon season!.

We are getting our ducks in a row for the mighty Silver King, but we simply cannot wait. We plan to be booked all season long, so if you plan on targeting tarpon this year in Florida, get to Homosassa. The tarpon fishing is awesome, but unlike most other areas -we simply do not have the crowds on the water. And if you’re a long rod guy looking to roll tippet out on a rolling tarpon – this is where Captain Brian Sawyer is your man.

But, let’s not get too side tracked – this spring anglers should expect to see peaked activity for redfish, snook, and sea trout. You will also have shots at cobia, with that peak season happening in the spring.

If you are looking to fish the nature coast with a inshore guide that is in tune and pumped up to guide you there, then contact us here at Old South Expeditions.

2018 is going t be epic.
