Saltwater Fishing Report for Sarasota, Florida.

Capt. Bob Smith
January 31, 2000
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past week has been nothing but wind, rain and cold with the passing fronts. A few people did get out and managed to catch a couple of fish but it was not good. By fishing what protected water they could find south and north of the bay, they did catch a few redfish and trout. Most of the time but not always, "Bad weather bad fishing" is a rule I go by. After a front moves through, the fishing will drop off. Then it is a matter of how severe the weather is as to how long it takes the fish to get back to normal. Some fish take advantage of the dirty water, like our saltwater catfish. Where do they all come from and where do they all go when it clears up? I really don't want to know where they go :-).

This weekend the weather should start calming things down. We should start to see the pompano in the passes and the grouper and snapper should still be offshore. It is just a matter of handling the ride out to get them. It will take a little longer for the (I) reefs to clear-up enough to be fishable. We need some Easterly winds to speed this up.

Enjoy and Protect!


Thank You,

Capt. Bob Smith
