  • Fall Florida Fishing in Sarasota

    Contrary to popular belief, the seasons do arrive in Florida. The changes are subtle; the sun angle changes, the days shorten, and it cools off a tad. These all combine to get fishing moving around and feeding!



    Anglers visiting Florida have a wide variety of fishing options. Here in Sarasota, the best bite for anglers seeking action and variety is to drift the deep grass flats. Speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jack crevalle, ladyfish, cobia, sharks, pompano, and other species will hit a jig or live bait.



    Anglers seeking more of a challenge can cast plugs and jigs along the mangrove shorelines in search of the mighty snook. This is great fun and something that I do on Siesta Key fishing charters with skilled anglers. Rapala X-Raps are the top lure.



    Fishing in the inshore Gulf of Mexico is amazing when conditions are right. East winds will have the Gulf waters smooth and clear. Bait fish will be thick, and this will attract the larger game fish. King Mackerel, Spanish mackerel, false albacore, and more will be landed.

    Heat of the Summer

    As always, the hot summer can be very discouraging; not only is it hot but it seems the grass nats can drive you crazy and there are big gapes of time between bites! When it is hot, and the sun is bearing down on you the only thing that takes your mind off the conditions is... read more

    Your Fishing Spot

    Sometimes you can just have too many places to fish, too many way points and too many miles of water to travel to get there; don’t try to fish everyone. If you’re not finding fish when that happens you should think about what you have been doing, what type of structure, depth... read more

    At the age of 5 through 7 this was my power house! It was 31/2 horsepower outboard Evinrude motor. It had a two-blade propeller that thrust it forward at least 5 to 8 knots. My boat was a 12 foot wooden row boat. Yes, it leaked like a sieve! However, even as a young child,... read more

    Flipping Anyone

    If there one thing you can count on in fall fishing on a regular basis is clear water, the reason being is generally we do not see a lot of rain; TVA does not pull much current and the water oxygen level is concentrated in different areas of the lake. As the thickness of the... read more

    No. The corp has a distribution list and they send it out via email. You have to sift through other lakes and tail waters but it's worth it if you want

    Warm rain won't help much. The oxygen levels in surface to 40 is fantastic. But stripers and walleye can't live in that warm of water. They can visit,

    Was hoping the rain chance Monday would get better. Flushing some of these creeks would help some I think. Unfortunately the chance keeps getting less
