Sarasota Florida Fishing Report
By Capt. Bob Smith

Spanish mackerel have moved in thick along the beach artificial (I) reefs. Along with the macks are bluefish, little tunny, and jacks. Live bait, jigs, and spoons are all working. Spoons work best when trolling with a small planer to keep your line from twisting. I find Diamond jigs the most durable when casting. A small peace of mackerel belly strip will enhance your strikes. All jigs will reduce line twist if not bent. Free-lining live bait will produce the most and largest fish most of the time. I never use wire or swivels when fishing for Spanish mackerel or bluefish. Wire will slow down your strikes and swivels will get you cut-off by other fish in the school. The following fish thing it is just some scraps dropped by the hooked fish.

The bay fishing is still good for trout, redfish, and bluefish. The variety of fish you may catch is extensive but most are small. I like the live shrimp for redfish around the docks and the DOA artificial shrimp for the grass-flats. The DOA lasts longer and gives the larger fish a chance to find it. If you can net some whitebait and free-line it out, you will get plenty of action from most of the species. However, not from the ones like pompano that only eat crustaceans.

The weather has been mostly good for morning fishing and that is a good time to go.

Enjoy & Protect
