Fast action in Sarasota after Hurricane Ian

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

I am happy to report that we suffered minimal damage from Hurricane Ian. I got out Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week and was pleasantly surprised to fine decent conditions and fast action! Despite some "color" to the water, the bite was very steady. Anglers casting New Penny Bass Assassin Sea Shad baits caught a bunch of speckled trout and ladyfish, with a few nice bluefish and Spanish mackerel mixed in. All of the deep grass plats held some fish. Bait is plentiful along the shallow bars and flats and I finished up a couple trips chumming, just to mix it up a bit. Live bait produced similar results (though the action was faster with the lures), including hooking a 60 lb tarpon which we had on for a couple of minutes before it jumped off.
