Steady sheepshead action in Sarasota - The sheepshead bite remained strong in Big Sarasota Pass over the last week. We had to move from the pass itself to the nearby docks and bridges due to very strong tidal flow. The best time to work structure in the pass is on a slack tide. Sheepshead more...

Good bite in Sarasota despite the weather and red tide. - Weather was definitely an issue in Sarasota this week, as we had two separate fronts move through, bringing wind and rain.

Good bite on the deep grass in Sarasota! - Fishing was very good this week on the grass flats near both passes this week. Bass Assassin Sea Shad baits tore them up, catching pompano, Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, and good numbers of bluefish and ladyfish. Several of my clients had never more...

Blues, trout, and a LOT of ladies in Sarasota - Fishing was good this week on the deep grass flats and in the passes this week.

snook, jacks, trout, and blues in Sarasota this week. - I started to transition from using live bait to casting jigs on the deep flats throughout the area, though chumming will still work on snook for a couple more weeks. As the water cools off into the low 70s, bait becomes more scarce and fish are more more...

Decent bite in Sarasota, despite the wind - The key to success on charters this week was dealing with the wind. Still breezes out of the northeast made fishing parts of Sarasota Bay impossible. Working the open flats early when the wind was not as strong, then moving to protected areas as the more...

Grouper pleasing inshore anglers in Sarasota - I was on vacation out west and returned mid-week. Action was steady this week, despite some challenging conditions.
