You can just see the pure joy in this young mans face.

Last week the water temps have started to rise above 68 degrees and the fishing has started to improve. The snook bite especially has been improving lately and they’re hungry after this winter.

Anglers fishing with me caught and released an average of 6 snook per trip as well as plenty of ladyfish, jacks, sheepshead, and Spanish mackerel.

We’ve had a good run of pompano as well on the right tides which is really an exciting fish to catch because of how they fight.

I’ve been really stressing catch and release as we need seed for the future. Sarasota Bay is under a lot of pressure from all the anglers on the water nowadays. So remember when you’re fishing today, you’re also fishing for tomorrow.

Capt. Capt. Kelly Kurtz

Kelly is a Sarasota native and the owner and operator of Mangrove Charters. He's pas­sion­ate about fishing and hunting. As a full-time fishing guide Kelly operates out of a 22 ft. Bayscout and specializes in light tackle using both arti­fi­cial and live bait. Redfish are his favorite.
