Lido Key

Summertime family Sarasota fishing charters

Summer means a bunch opf families visiting Sarasota and Siesta Key and Lido Key, and for me running my fishing charters, that means families with children.  The goal on these trips is action and vartiety, keeping the rods bent and the kids excited is very important.  I switched over to primarily fishing with live bait as this is the best approach to achieving that goal.  My Sarasota fishing report includes speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jack crevelle, gag grouper, mangrove snapper, ladyfish, catfish, and more.  The deep grass flats near both passes were the best spots.  Getting out there early was crucial, it has been VERY hot!  We started at 6:30 and finished up by 10:30.  Most charters produced around 50 fish.
