Chaz Hart, from MT, experienced a beautiful morning of fly fishing this past Saturday, on Sarasota Bay.

We fished the deep grass of Sarasota Bay. Chaz caught numerous spotted sea trout. All the fish were protected from the cormorants and released safely.

Most of the trout were fooled by a olive and white Clouser deep minnow. The water temperature was in the mid 60’s and extremely clear. About 30 inches of 20 pound fluorocarbon produced well.

All and all it was a very satisfying on the water, with air tempatures a little chillier than normal but no where near the tempatures back home in Chaz’s native Montana.

Sarasota has been Ed's home since 1956. He's fished these area waters since he was nine years old. From 1995 until the present he's guided anglers exclusively in and around the back­wa­ters of Sarasota Bay. Fly fishing is his passion and he's an Orvis Endorsed Guide.
