Good fishing in Sarasota after storms

Capt. Jim Klopfer

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Mother Nature threw us a curve ball this week as a tropical system moved through the area, bringing rain and wind and shutting things down for several days. I was able to get out on Friday and Saturday, and as is the case after a storm, the key was to move around and find clean water and feeding fish. Clients on charters did well both days. It took a bit of prospecting, but on Friday we found a good trout bite near Selby Gardens along with a bluefish, mangrove snapper, and some ladyfish using jigs and live shrimp. The bite was better Saturday as the water cleared a bit. Clients landed 11 different species free lining live shrimp, including trout, snapper, grouper, jack crevelle, a 20 lb bonnett head shark, ladyfish and more in Big Sarasota Pass and the surrounding flats. Conditions should improve as the water clears and we get off the full moon.
