Susan Wayde, from MI, with a nice trout caught and released on a Clouser fly while fishing Sarasota Bay.

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action with trout and Spanish mackerel on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me recently. Spin fishing anglers scored with CAL jigs and a variety of plastic tails and DOA Deadly Combos. Fly anglers got it done with Clouser flies fished on sink tip fly lines.

Greg Stepanski, from Tampa, fished a blustery day in Sarasota Bay with me recently and had good action with trout and Spanish mackerel on CAL jigs and plugs. We ducked into a creek to hide from the wind and caught and released some decent jacks and a snook.

Dave Wahl, from Lakewood Ranch, with a bluefish caught and released on a Clouser fly while fishing Sarasota Bay with Capt. Rick Grassett recently.

Susan Wayde, from Bloomfield Hills, MI took the CB’s Saltwater Outfitters Orvis-Endorsed fly fishing school and then fished Sarasota Bay with Mark Wayde, also from Bloomfield Hills, with me recently. They had a great day catching and releasing trout, jacks and a couple of Spanish mackerel on Clouser flies.

Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, Spanish mackerel, blues and pompano. Check the coastal gulf for Spanish mackerel, false albacore and tripletail when conditions are good.

Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, toxic spills, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!
