Tarpon Action Heating Up in Sarasota Coastal Gulf

Capt. Rick Grassett
June 24, 2019
Sarasota - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fly anglers fishing with me, out of CB's Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action with tarpon in the coastal gulf during the past week. A persistent west wind for most of the week made conditions tough and a couple of trips were cancelled. Despite a big swell and choppy conditions on several days that we fished, some tarpon schools were high in the water column and several tarpon were jumped. Jeb Mulock, from Bradenton and Jeff Handlin, from CO, fished with me on Friday. They had lots of shots and Jeb landed a fish. Great job!

Look for tarpon in the coastal gulf. If conditions are poor in the gulf, you may find them in protected inside waters where fishing mangrove shorelines for catch and release reds and snook may also be a good option. Night fishing for snook and more is a dependable option and a good way to beat the heat. Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don't kill your limit!
