River fishing produces big snook in Sarasota

Capt. Jim Klopfer
February 18, 2023
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Action was steady this week on the grass flats in Sarasota Bay. Unlike the last few weeks where fish seemed to be all in one spot, most of the deeper grass flats provided some action. Speckled trout and ladyfish were fairly plentiful and readily took Bass Assassin jigs. We found some nice sized Spanish mackerel to 3 1/2 pounds towards the end of the week and they wanted a fast moving Rapala X-Rap. I did a little bottom fishing in Big Pass and caught a bunch of undersized snapper, not sure where the sheepshead are. River charters are giving patient anglers the opportunity to catch a trophy snook, like this one that hit a Rapala.
