Steady action continues in Sarasota

Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Click to Enlarge Photo

Unseasonably warm weather persists even though the calendar says that it is autumn. Temperatures are still in the low 90s with water temps 86 at the end of the week. The bite on the deep grass flats remained the best bet for anglers on Sarasota fishing charters that were seeking action and variety. Speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, ladyfish, and other species kept the rods bent. Jigs and live bait were both productive. Jigs work best when there is a little wind present to keep the boat moving. Snook are still in the passes and starting to migrate into the bays. Spanish mackerel schools were spotted off of Pt. of Rocks on Siesta Key, a good cold front should really kick off that fishing.
