Fishing Report from For Shore Fishing.

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters, had some action with trout, bluefish, pompano, and a redfish on D.O.A. CAL jigs with shad tails in Sarasota Bay during the past week. With a strong front approaching fast on Wednesday afternoon, the fish turned on, reports Capt. Rick Grassett of Snook Fin-Addict Guide Service (941-923-7799).
Marshall Dinerman and Vic Silverman, both of Atlanta, Georgia, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday afternoon. With water temperature in the high 50’s, action was slow to start. However, as an approaching front got close to us, the action turned on. We had good action with the above mentioned species on D.O.A. CAL jigs with shad tails, Grassett said.
Anglers will want to fish the windows of stable weather between fronts for the best action in upcoming days. Sunny afternoons with some protection from the wind should produce better this time of year due to warmer water. Since the last cold front was relatively short in duration, water temperature should warm back into the 60’s within a few days. There should be good action with trout, bluefish, pompano, and more on the deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for larger trout and redfish should also be a good option, Grassett reports.
