Posted by on Aug 26, 2015 in Fishing Reports |

  This summer has been a great time with red grouper taking the center stage.  I hope it continues into the fall then the gag grouper will move in.  Trout fishing in the bay has been fast but mostly small ones.  The bigger ones should become more active when the water cools off from the high 80’s it is now. All the rain has prevented it from...

Fall fishing here in Sarasota is getting off to a great start.  The water temps are slowly dropping and the fish are becoming more active.  The grouper and snapper are moving in closer to shore so going after them is not a long ride.  Cobia are also showing up on some of the reefs.  The fall kingfish run is just beginning and along with the kings are...
