Action slowed a bit in Sarasota - Fishing was not quite as good for me this week, for whatever reason. Jigs produced some trout, jacks, bluefish, and ladyfish, but not in big numbers. Bait was easy to catch, however heavy chumming at the normal spots around both passes never got the more...

Fishing improves in Sarasota as red tide clears out - 8/21/2021:  It has been hot and humid in Sarasota this week! The lack of wind made the bite a little bit spotty.

red tide affecting fishing in Sarasota - Fishing was slow this week with morning thunderstorms cancelling most of my trips. Friday was nice, though hot, but red tide shut down most of Sarasota Bay. There is an area of cleaner water to the south, and bottom fishing produced some snapper. The more...

red tide slows bite in Sarasota - Unfortunately, the red tide that has been plaguing Tampa Bay moved into our area this week. There was not a huge fish kill, but it certainly slowed the bite. It also makes fishing with live bait difficult as and red tide that gets in the well will ki more...

Good fishing resumes in Sarasota after Else - Fishing was good this week, despite tropical storm Elsa moving through. I did not fish Tuesday or Wednesday, but was back out on Thursday to find minimal effects from the storm. The jig bite did slow a bit this week and the best action was had by cat more...

Action and variety in Sarasota! - Anglers experienced both action and variety on fishing charters this week. The strategy of casting lures early then switching to chumming with bait worked well. Jigs caught plenty of fish in the first hour or two. The bait is small, but just large en more...

jigs and bait combination produces in Sarasota - I have eased into my summer strategy of casting jigs early, then switching over to chumming with live bait. This is very effective as anglers take advantage of the low light feeding, when fish are generally active. When that slows, it is time to catc more...

Decent action in Sarasota this week - Action was steady this week, with clients catching a good variety of species. The numbers of fish were down a tad, we did have some unstable weather and weak tides. Still, anglers casting jigs caught speckled trout to 20, bluefish, silver trout, Spa more...
