Good action on the deep grass in Sarasota

Capt. Jim Klopfer

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing was outstanding this week for clients taking fishing charters with me! Sarasota Bay is loaded with baitfish and just about every grass flat in 5' to 8' of water has bait and gamefish on it. There were a lot of fish breaking on the surface, especially early in the morning, and clients did well casting glow/chartreuse Bass Assassin jigs. Middlegrounds and Buttonwood were the top spots. When the jig bite slowed, a switch to chumming with live threadfins got them going in short order. Spanish mackerel to 3 pounds made an appearance this week, probably due in part to the drop in water temperature, it was down to 83 on Saturday. Along with the macks, anglers landed speckled trout to 20", bluefish to 3 pounds, jack crevelle, gag grouper, mangrove snapper, and ladyfish. Live bait produced best on the flats near Big Pass.
