On the water with Capt. Kelly Kurtz.

On the blue waters of Sarasota Bay with Capt. Kurtz.

Last week on the new moon week the fishing was very productive. We fished the passes with live bait which produced a lot of excitement.

I’d like to think we were a little bit more than lucky.We caught and released a lot of Snook up to 31 inches, as well as Pompano, Permit, Sharks, Mangrove Snapper, Flounder and even a few Bonefish which have started to move into our area.

We’re definitely catching fish that I haven’t seen before in these waters which is a good sign no matter how you look at it.

Capt. Capt. Kelly Kurtz
