Anglers fishing Sarasota Bay with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action on a recent trip. Bruce Mickelson, from Sarasota and Eric Mickelson, from MD, fished a day with me and caught and released trout on CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA Deadly Combos. Trout, jacks and ladyfish were feeding in glass minnow schools so we worked the bait schools to locate and catch fish.

Tarpon are moving from the coastal gulf to inside areas of Charlotte Harbor and Tampa Bay as they thin out in the gulf. You might also find juvenile tarpon in creeks and canals this time of year. Fishing mangrove shorelines for catch and release reds and snook may also be a good option. Night fishing for snook and more is a dependable option and a good way to beat the heat.

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!
