Homosassa SheepsWritten by Captain Dan
A tough one yesterday and about as good as it gets today; you just never know. I was at the Homosassa fishing club today with fellow Homosassa Guides Association Captains Mark Zorn and William Toney for a full day of chasing down some sheepshead, I had the Sinkler family on board and we had an absolute perfect day. With calm seas, I ran offshore to the 15ft range and targeted some of my favorite hard bottom structures and the fish were there. Spanish mackerel, grunts, grouper, porgies, black sea bass, and numerous sheepshead, made for some fantastic action. Using live shrimp on the 1/8th oz Hank Brown jig head was once again our tackle of choice. We had over 20 keeper sheepshead and a couple were over the five pound mark, with the big one just under 10lbs. Captains Zorn and Toney did great as well with some great mixed bag varieties and it was just a great day to be on the water. Here's Allison with the big one of the day, a beautiful Homosassa sheepshead... Capt. Dan
