Sarasota Florida Fishing Report
By Capt. Bob Smith

For the last few weeks, we have been enjoying some good action along the beach and on the bay. The artificial (I) reefs in 25 to 30 feet of water have been holding plenty of nice size Spanish mackerel. We are also catching barracuda, bluefish and sharks both large and small. Live pilchards or sardines have been the best bait for the macks and the mackerel are good bait for the cuda and sharks. We have been finding plenty of live bait both inshore and offshore.

On the bay, the Ringling home grass flats have been hopping at first light. The flats are covered with baitfish most of the day, but at first light, 6:30AM, the birds and fish are tearing them up. Most of the fish are ladyfish but in with them you will find bluefish, mackerel, trout, small grouper, jack and snapper. Live shrimp or pilchards have been working well. D.O.A. shrimp is doing the job for me and with all of the pinfish returning to the bay, it is hard to keep live bait on the hook. Redfish and snook are also being found around the bay by more patient anglers.

The bay is now loaded with baby gag grouper, snapper and hordes of pinfish. This is a very good for the bay but may coast you more bait. It is well worth it seeing the bay come back. Only the sea trout and flounder seem to be scarce at this time.
