Steady bite this week in Sarasota

Capt. Jim Klopfer

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing was good this week, though on most trips we did have to work a bit for them. I would characterize the bite as "steady" this week for clients on Sarasota fishing charters. We did a pretty even mix of drifting the flats and bottom fishing. Bass Assassin jigs and Gulp Shrimp produced decent bluefish, speckled trout to 21", and plenty of ladyfish at the Middlegrounds, Bishop's Pt., and Buttonwood. Rocks in Big Pass and docks near Bird Key and Siesta Key were quite productive, pleasing anglers with nice sheepshead, redfish, snook, mangrove snapper, flounder, and gag grouper. Live and fresh dead shrimp fished on the bottom fooled them. Strong current prohibited fishing the pass later in the week, but tides are more favorable this upcoming week.
