Redfish for Sarasota

Sarasota Florida Fishing Report
By Capt. Bob Smith

We had a good day last Friday. The wind was calm and the temperature was just perfect. We anchored up on the first artificial reef just south of New Pass. It was dead low tide and we had non stop fish on for about four hours. We were using live hand picked shrimp, (the larger shrimp of the day) and fished the bottom with a small split-shot. Most of what we caught was bluefish, but we did get a variety of fish. We also caught lots of short grouper, some Spanish mackerel, black seabass and two nice redfish, 26.5” and 24.5”. We had reports of some nice grouper, snapper and king mackerel being caught in deeper offshore water.

After about four hours, we moved into the bay to fish the grass-flats on the east side of the bay. We used DOA shrimp for more fun and to stay away from the pesky pinfish. We caught some large Spanish mackerel, sea trout and had a number of cut-offs. Then we hooked a fish we could not stop. We chased it for about 500 feet before it through the hook. We got the DOA back, but never saw the fish.

There seemed to be plenty of baitfish by the last marker out of New Pass plus I saw carpets of baitfish on “Lost” reef just east of the Lynn Silvertooth reef. I call it Lost because it is not on the charts.
