Red tide subsiding, Capt Jim going on vacation!

Capt. Jim Klopfer
September 3, 2018
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

As is usually the case when red tide is present, the key to achieving angling success is finding "clean" water devoid of the pesky algae. Of late, this has been the area south of the Siesta Drive Bridge, down to Blackburn Pt. This stretch is pretty far from the passes. Also, we have had a lot of east wind, which seems to have helped move it out.

Catch and release snook action should be good. The FWC has made reds and snook catch and release until they determine the effects of the red tide. I applaud this move. Clients this week had good action early in the morning on snook, jacks, and snapper casting white #8 Rapala X-Raps near seawalls, bars, and shorelines.

I am heading to N.H and Maine to cool off and catch a few brookies and stripers. I will be back at the end of Sept, reports will resume then, Capt Jim
