Capt. Bruce Burkhart with a nice spotted sea trout caught and released while fishing Sarasota Bay.

The last few weeks the fishing has been pretty good. Anglers fishing with me aboard the Casual Lies out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters have had their rods bent for most of their trips.

Fishing the docks with live shrimp and topwater lures we have been catching some small Redfish up to 24 inches and Snook up to about 22 inches.

Fishing with Greenback colored CAL Jigs on the grass flats in about 6 to 8 ft of water the fishing has been fast and steady. Anglers have been catching Bluefish, Mackerel, Jacks, Grouper, Ladyfish, and some Trout.

The Trout in the bay have recovered really well in the last year. A couple of anglers that are decent fishermen can catch 20 to 25 Trout, with a few being over 20 inches. The last hour of the trip we have been chunking up some Bluefish and Ladyfish and catching some 4-5 ft Sharks. They will test your skills on these lite tackle rods.
