Kirk Grassett with a tripletail he caught and released on flies while fishing with Capt. Rick Grassett recently.

Fly anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing tripletail and a bonus false albacore on flies in the coastal gulf recently.

My brother Kirk Grassett, from Middletown, DE, visited for a few days prior to us heading over to Mars Bay Bonefish Lodge in South Andros, Bahamas.

With all of our pre-travel COVID testing and paperwork completed, we had a chance to fish a day. With good conditions, we hunted tripletail, found a few and caught and released several on flies. We also found a couple of schools of false albacore (little tunny) that were up and down very briefly but we were able to be in the right place at the right time to hook up!

Patrice Camillieri, from France, also got in on the action, catching and releasing several tripletail on a fly on another trip with me. Spin fishing anglers fishing shallow water with me caught and released a few decent trout on DOA Lures.

Fish the coastal gulf when conditions are good and look for reds, snook and large trout in shallow water. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a usually a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, Spanish mackerel, jacks, blues and more.

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