Jenny Goodell, and 13 year old Brooke, holding a Sarasota Bay Trout.

Jenny Goodell, and 13 year old Brooke, two fine anglers.

Pictured holding this Sarasota Bay trout are Jenny Goodell, and 13 year old Brooke. Two very fine anglers, both of these anglers are involved and belong to the International Women’s Fishing Association.

In fact, Brooke is the IWFA reigning top junior freshwater angler from last year. On our recent trip, they kept me quite busy as they caught and released over twenty trout in four hours. Using a popping corn with a DOA shrimp was quite an effective bait.

Besides catching the trout, Jenny landed a beautiful snook using that same bait combo. We couldn’t have asked for a better day as the water was clear, with light winds and the fish biting.

I have taken Brooke out before, she’s a special young lady and hopefully I will get to fish with her again in the future.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.


Dave also caught and released a 28″ red on a CAL jig with a grub fishing Sarasota Bay with Capt. Grassett.

Shallow water fishing for reds and large trout is also a good option now, although they are very challenging in clear water. These conditions usually require long casts to avoid spooking fish.

Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!
