Denny Clohisy, from CA, with a trout caught and released on a CAL jig with a shad tail while fishing Sarasota Bay with Capt. Rick Grassett recently.

Denny Clohisy with a trout he caught and released on a CAL jig with a shad tail while fishing Sarasota Bay.

Anglers fishing Sarasota Bay with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action with trout, blues, tripletail and more on flies and DOA Lures recently. Spin fishing anglers caught and released trout, blues and jacks on CAL jigs with a variety of tails and DOA Deadly Combos while fly anglers scored with a Clouser fly fished on a sink tip fly line on several trips recently.

With stone crab traps in the water, tripletail are starting to show up. Spin fishing anglers also caught and released a couple of small tripletail in the coastal gulf on DOA Shrimp.

Fish the coastal gulf for false albacore (little tunny), Spanish mackerel and tripletail when conditions are good. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is also a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, blues and Spanish mackerel. Shallow water action for reds and snook should turn on as the water cools. 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!
