Good Action in Sarasota for a Variety of Species

Capt. Rick Grassett
September 12, 2021
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB's Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action catching and releasing trout, snook and juvenile tarpon in Sarasota with DOA Lures on several trips recently. Ross Tornabene and his daughter, Gianna, from Naperville, IL, caught and released several nice trout on CAL jigs with a variety of plastic tails and DOA Deadly Combos on a trip in Sarasota Bay with me. They also jumped a couple of juvenile tarpon and caught and released a tarpon and snook on a DOA TerrorEyz.

Red tide has cleared in Sarasota Bay and fish are returning to normal patterns. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, jacks, blues and more. Since heat is still an issue, fishing dock lights for snook and juvenile tarpon before dawn is also a good option. Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, toxic spills, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don't kill your limit!
