Last week was a good week for guest aboard the Casual Lies out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters. Fuji Chix and White CAL jigs worked very well on the grass flats in Sarasota Bay. All week long we stayed in water about 5 to 7 ft and caught a variety of fish. Trout led each day with catches around 40 some days up to 70 or more with three experienced guys.

Most Trout were medium size (14- 16) inches but we did have some in the (18-21) inch slot. Mackerel are showing up on DOA Shrimp under a popping cork with some up to 21 inches. Pompano are scattered around the flats with a few being caught but not every day. The best catch is the Cobia, they are only 21-25 inches for the ones we caught but I’m sure some bigger fish are on the way.

See ya on the Bay!
