Good action in Sarasota over the Easter holiday

Capt. Jim Klopfer
April 20, 2017
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Clients on fishing charters with me had good action this week, landing snook, redfish, jack crevelle, flounder, mangrove snapper, speckled trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and loads of ladyfish! As is the case during the Easter holiday, many of the trips involved children and novice anglers. Big Pass provided fast action for anglers drifting live shrimp and casting jigs. Ladyfish were plentiful along with bluefish and the occasional Spanish mackerel. The deep grass flats at Marina Jack, Robert's Bay, and Middlegrounds were productive as well, with speckled trout, bluefish, mackerel, snapper, and ladyfish hitting Bass Assassin jigs, plugs, and live shrimp. I also had a couple of trips with more experienced anglers, and we spent some time targeting snook, with pretty good success. Friday morning was particularly good as we landed a dozen snook along with several nice snapper, jacks, and a 21" flounder using plugs and live shrimp.
