Fantastic flase albacore bite in Sarasota!

Capt. Jim Klopfer
December 4, 2017
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Action was excellent once again this week for clients on Sarasota fishing charters with the highlight being the continued fantastic false albacore bite in the inshore Gulf of Mexico. Albies fed aggressively on the surface all along the beaches, particularly near the passes and off of Pt. of Rocks and hot Bass Assassin jigs, plugs, spoons, and flies. A few small Spanish mackerel were mixed in and we even saw a pod of tarpon! This is great sport on light tackle and may continue for several more weeks, weather permitting.

Inshore, action was very good as schools of large bluefish (4 pounds is a nice one here) and ladyfish were encountered on the deeper grass flats at Marina Jacks and Middlegrounds, with quite a few speckled trout mixed in. Structure in Big Pass held grouper, snapper, grunts, and more and were caught using frozen shrimp.

River fishing charters produced plenty of hard-fighting jack crevelle, though a trip on Saturday was slow. Upcoming cooler weather should get fish moving.
