Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action with trout in Sarasota Bay and tripletail in the coastal gulf on flies and DOA Lures recently. Greg Stepanski, from Tampa, fished the coastal gulf with me and caught and released his first tripletail on a fly. Great job! Steve Gibson, of Southern Drawl Kayak Fishing, also fished the coastal gulf with me and had good action with tripletail landing 2 out of 3 on flies.

My brother, Joe Grassett from Seaford, DE, visited and fished Sarasota Bay a few days with me recently. His visit coincided with a cold front, which provided some classic winter trout fishing. With the water temperatures plummeting we fished CAL jigs with jerk worms, low and slow, and caught and released numerous quality trout.

Fish the coastal gulf for tripletail when conditions are good. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, blues and Spanish mackerel. Shallow water action for reds and snook should also be a good option now.

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!
