Bradenton - Saltwater Fishing Report
After the first major cold front of the year has come and gone throught the Bradenton and Sarasota areas, the fish have moved closer to their wintertime haunts. The fishing has been really good this past week with the trout fishing stealing the show. Upper slot trout and trout over 20 inches have been the norm on our fishing charters lately. The trout are in the 1-3ft grass flats and are eating whitebait and shrimp. Fishing wiht a popping cork is one of my favorite ways to locate trout and get them fired up. Along the edges of the flats and into some of the deeper grass flats we have also been encountering a lot of bluefish and ladyfish that have helped to keep the rods bent. We have been catching a good amount of snook.
Tripletail are still a good option to fish for out in the gulf just a couple miles off the beach. There has still been some kingfish being caught but the cold front pushed the majority of the kings south.
The fishing is still good and we are reeling them in, if you are looking for a fishing charter in the Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, or Sarasota area give me a call at 813-220-8725.
