Anglers fishing with me last week in Sarasota Bay caught and released trout, bluefish, mackerel, and ladyfish using DOA CAL shad tails and DOA deadly combos.
We concentrated on the deep grass flats near the passes with moving water. Bay water temps are in the mid to upper 80’s by noon so fish early for best results. Tarpon is still in full swing in our area if you want a chance to catch one of these premier big game fish, late June and July is the time to do it.
Spin anglers are catching them on live crabs and DOA baitbusters, my fly guys are getting numerous shots and looks with black bunny flies.
