Good action on fly in Sarasota

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

I experienced an interesting and diverse variety of fishing charters this week. 4 of my trips were fly anglers, two in the bay, two in the rivers. I also ran a spin trip inshore. Speckled trout were plentiful, though many were small. The fly trip on Monday was very good, with a relatively inexperienced angler landing 9 species on Closer patterns, including pompano, trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, and ladyfish. Anglers casting jigs caught a lot of trout along with a few jacks, bluefish, and ladyfish. We hit a couple docks with shrimp and landed a few nice black drum, sheepshead, snapper, and a small redfish. Two trips to the Myakka and Braden Rivers resulted in big gar, a very nice bass, snook, jacks, and ladyfish on fly, though unseasonably warm weather slowed the bite a bit.
