Spanish mackerel arrived in Sarasota!

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Spanish mackerel showed up in Sarasota this week! My clients encountered them in the middle of Sarasota Bay near New Pass on Mon and Tuesday. We went in the afternoon to avoid the fog and very low tides in the morning. Spin anglers caught them on Rapala X-Raps and spoons while a fly angler did well using a white D.T. Special and Clouser patterns. I also heard reports of them out on the inshore reefs. Jacks and snook provided action early in the week, but that slowed up as the water warmed up. I finished up later in the week fishing the Myakka River. Action was fair with several snook and bass being caught on #10 X-Raps. Again, the warmer weather probably did not help that bite.
