Sarasota Bay Fishing Report

October 2022

It is officially fall in Sarasota, Florida and we are enjoying the cooler temperatures. We have experienced our first cold front of the year and our water temperatures got as low as 64 degrees in some places. By the end of October our water temperatures have climbed back up to a comfortable 70 - 78 degrees and the fish are loving it! During the cold front our customers enjoyed targeting Snook in creeks while they were finding the warmer water. Before and after the cold front we targeted schools of Redfish on our shallow grass flats, while water temperatures were low we had good luck targeting Redfish along structure and dock lines. Once our water temperatures warmed up the Trout, Mackerel and Bluefish fishing in Sarasota Bay really took off! Winter is just around the corner and we are enjoying our fall fishing while it lasts!

September 2022

We are at the end of Summer here in Sarasota, Florida and are starting to enjoy signs of Fall. Our customers have enjoyed targeting Snook along our mangrove islands and dock lines. It has been all about finding the shade and ambush points. The Trout fishing has been on fire in Sarasota Bay. The key here has been finding big schools of bait that the Trout are feeding on. Our customers have also enjoyed the Spanish Mackerel that could not resist busting up the large schools of bait. As we got deeper into September, the Redfish fishing stated to improve. Customers had the best luck targeting schools of 10-15 fish cruising shallow grass flats and mangrove islands. We are excited to see how the Redfish fishing continues to improve in October!

August 2022

Summer is slowly coming to an end here in Sarasota, Florida and we are excited to be seeing signs of Fall. Our Trout Fishing has been fantastic in Sarasota Bay along our deeper grass flats with tons of action from other by catch, Jacks, Lady Fish, Mangrove Snapper and Triple Tail. We have also started to find small schools of Redfish along our shallower grass flats and mangrove islands. The Snook fishing in Sarasota seems to always be good as our customers have enjoyed catching Snook in both our passes ( New Pass, Big Pass) and along our mangrove islands and oysters bars on the higher tides.

July 2022

We are deep into summer here in Sarasota, Florida and it is hot! We have been beating the heat by starting our morning trips a little early and making plenty of pit stops to cool off in the water.  Our customers enjoyed targeting Snook, Mangrove Snapper and Jacks in our passes along Siesta Key, Lido Beach and Longboat Key as well as along the beaches. We have also been getting lucky targeting Trout and Blue Fish in Sarasota Bay along our deeper grass flats. The key has been finding the cooler water and schools of bait fish.

June 2022

Summer fishing has been in full swing during the month of June here in Sarasota, Florida. It is summer vacation, kids are out of school and we have been busy as ever! Our customers continue to enjoy targeting Snook, Trout and Redfish in our passes and along our beaches. A highlight for June has been our Mangrove Snapper fishing, they have really started to steal the show with their wonderful table fare. Our Summer Tarpon migration is still going strong with large numbers of Tarpon congregating during the outgoing tides in the passes along Siesta Key, Lido Key and Longboat Key!

May 2022

The month of May has been a transitional month as we slowly transitioned from the end of Spring to the beginning of Summer fishing in Sarasota, Florida. Our customers have continued to target Snook, Redfish and Trout inshore along our shallow grass flats, mangrove islands and oyster bars. As we have moved into Summer Break we have also started to find Snook and Redfish in our passes and along the beaches of Siesta Key, Lido Key and Long Boat Key. Although, the real highlight of May has to be the beginning of our Summer Tarpon migration. These bucket list fish have shown up in big numbers this year and our customers have enjoyed targeting them along the beaches.

April 2022

It has been Spring fishing at its finest during the month of April. With water temperatures sitting between the high 70 degrees to low 80 degrees, the Snook, Redfish and Trout fishing has been as good it gets in Sarasota Bay. Customers have enjoyed targeting these Florida game fish along our shallow grass flats and oyster bars. We have been having numerous picturesque days with multiple inshore slams with plenty of quality fish to go around. With the water temperatures continuing to rise we are starting to find more and more snook in the passes and are looking forward to what Summer time has to offer.

March 2022

The sheepshead spawn has been in full effect during the month of March and customers have enjoyed targeting these delicious fish along the rock jetties inshore and any substantial structure nearshore. Water temperatures have also started to rise, marking the beginning of Spring in Sarasota Bay creating one of my favorite times of the year to fish. Inshore Charters have been staying busy targeting Trout, Snook, Redfish, Jacks and Mackerel along our shallow grass flats, mangrove islands and oyster bars.

February 2022

Its officially winter here in Sarasota, Florida. The water temperatures are hovering at a shivering high 50's - low 60's making a lot of our game fish, like snook, redfish and trout a little bit on the lethargic side. With these frigid water temperatures fish have started to key in on shrimp and other crustaceans. Our customers have been staying busy fishing deepwater docks and rocks targeting sheepshead, snapper, blackdrum and redfish. We have also been having success targeting jacks and snook in creeks and residential canals with shrimp and artificial DOA Shrimp and other crustacean profiles.
