Steady action in Sarasota, though wind was an issue.

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Click to Enlarge Photo

I was up in north Georgia for several days on a little vacation before the summer fishing season. I did get in one trip on Friday, after I returned home. I took out locals Doc Dojutrek, Bill Kish, and John Englander, and they had a solid charter. Bill started off hot with a 16" mangrove snapper on the first cast, then landed a decent snook a few moments later. Doc pitched in with several more snook. We were casting Rapala plugs along shorelines in Robert's Bay. The bite slowed when the sun came up, so we moved to Big Pass and caught ladyfish, jacks, and a decent Spanish mackerel using chartreuse pompano jigs. I picked up some live shrimp and we did well on speckled trout to 20", bluefish, jacks, and ladyfish at the Middlegrounds and Buttonwood. Saturday was forecast to be breezy, so we decided to reschedule.
