Good snapper bite in Sarasota

Capt. Jim Klopfer

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Weather was an issue as Tropical Storm Erin breezed through. Thankfully, it moved very quickly and I was back out on the water on Tuesday to find conditions surprisingly favorable. Mangrove snapper were definitely the "fish of the week" for clients on fishing charters. These feisty and great-eating saltwater panfish are plentiful throughout the area. Chumming the deep grass flats near Big Pass produced a lot of mangs, as did fishing bridges and docks with live threadfins. Along with the mangs, many speckled trout were landed, with jacks, gag grouper, Spanish mackerel, and ladyfish mixed in. Mackerel numbers were down from last week, probably due to the water being a bit stirred up, but that action should pick up this week.
