Catch & Release in Homosassa...

Written by 
Picture perfect weather and it felt like spring again. It was back at Tarpon Key Lodge for fishing the Green party and myself, Capt. Zorn and Capt. Toney were the hosts for the days charter and afternoon shore lunch. Merritt and Jeff were on board with me today and since the gang is flying back to Atlanta tomorrow, today was just a catch and release day. There was a stiff NE breeze for the early morning hours and it was pretty "skinny" running the flats. We started the day using cork rigs off the keys and did well catching six keepers to get the day going. As the day warmed and wind calmed, we made a quick 2 mile run to about 6ft of water and made a long drift over some spotty bottom. Excellent trout action and a mixed catch of pompano, Spanish mackerel, blue fish, grouper and sea bass filled out the day nicely. We totaled 16 keeper trout "which all were safely released", before we ran back to the lodge and prepared a fantastic shore lunch. A great time today with you both and here's Merritt with a keeper trout that posed for a quick picture... Capt. Dan
