Fast fishing over Christmas holiday in Sarasota!

Many of my clients that go out on Sarasota fishing charters over holidays such as Christmas and Easter include families with children and also novice anglers.  My goal on these types of trips is pretty simple; action!  Any fish that bends the rod is a good fish.  Drifting the deep grass flats and passes is generally the best approach and this week was no different.  Warm, sunny weather and light breezes made for ideal conditions and the fish responded.  Speckled trout, pompano, cbia, sharks, bluefish, gag grouper, sailcats, jacks, and a bunch of ladyfish provided fast action in Big Pass, Marina Jacks, and the Middlegrounds.  All but a few of the fish were caught using Bass Assassin jigs and Gulp! Shrimp.  This will be my last fishing report for 2017 and I want to thank all of my clients for a great year!
