Good bite in Sarasota despite the weather and red tide. - Weather was definitely an issue in Sarasota this week, as we had two separate fronts move through, bringing wind and rain.

snook, jacks, trout, and blues in Sarasota this week. - I started to transition from using live bait to casting jigs on the deep flats throughout the area, though chumming will still work on snook for a couple more weeks. As the water cools off into the low 70s, bait becomes more scarce and fish are more more...

Decent bite in Sarasota, despite the wind - The key to success on charters this week was dealing with the wind. Still breezes out of the northeast made fishing parts of Sarasota Bay impossible.

Grouper pleasing inshore anglers in Sarasota - I was on vacation out west and returned mid-week. Action was steady this week, despite some challenging conditions.

Decent action in Serasota though red tide is a factor - Fishing was productive this week, despite the scattered red tide that is in the area. Persistence and the ability to adapt to ever-changing conditions are the keys to success. A spot that produces one morning might be dead two days later. Bait fis more...
