Weather is an issue for anglers in Sarasota

Mother Nature has made fishing in Sarasota a bit challeging of late.  It has been breezy with som rain and with Tropical Storm Alberto bearing down, we can expect more of the same for several days.  Also, I was on vacation for a week or so, did some bass fishin in Indiana.  In between the weather, clients landed speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, ladyfish, and more on the deep grass flats using jigs and live shrimp.  Rapala plugs and live hand-picked shrimp fooled snook, redfish, mangrove snapper, and jack crevelle along mangrove shorelines and under docks in Robert's Bay.  Tarpon are showing up, but the wind is hindering the fishing.
