Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action catching and releasing reds and trout on DOA Lures in Sarasota Bay and Tampa Bay recently. Fly anglers also caught and released trout with a couple of blues and pompano in the mix in Sarasota Bay on Clouser flies.

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL and several family members fished with me in Sarasota Bay, Gasparilla Sound and Tampa Bay recently.

Rick and Nate Anderson, from IL, fished Sarasota Bay with Keith and caught and released trout and a red on CAL jigs with shad tails. Steve McClintock, from Pittsburgh, joined his dad for a day of fishing in Tampa Bay and caught and released a nice red also on a CAL jig with shad tail.

Ray Hutchinson, from MI, with a Pompano, both caught and released on Clouser flies while fishing with Capt. Rick Grassett recently.

I will be the instructor for CB’s Saltwater Outfitters Orvis-Endorsed fly fishing school on Sat, Feb 4, 2023. The course, designed for beginning and intermediate fly casters, will focus on basic fly casting principles, improving casting skills and correcting faults. We will also cover saltwater fly fishing techniques, leader construction and fly selection. Cost for the class, which will run from 8:30 AM to 2 PM, is $225 per person and includes the use of Orvis fly tackle, workbook and lunch.

Optional instructional guided fly fishing trips are also available for an additional fee. Contact CB’s Saltwater Outfitters at (941) 349-4400 or info@cbsoutfitters.com to make reservations.

Look for reds and trout in skinny water. Deep grass flats are usually a good option for action with trout, blues, pompano, Spanish mackerel and more. Snook fishing around dock lights and bridges should also be a good option now as long as water temperatures stay above 60 degrees.

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