Early summer fishing in Sarasota and its surrounding areas has been fantastic so far this year! Charter fishing captains and local anglers alike continue to regularly report a wide variety of species being caught in the bays and off the beaches.
In shore, we’ve seen a noticeable amount of decent sized Snook along with the abundance of Spotted Sea Trout and Red Fish regularly encountered throughout Sarasota Bay. The off shore reefs continue to produce a good catch and release Grouper bite as well and it’s not uncommon to encounter large Cobia and King Mackerel while free lining live bait in the surrounding areas.
Tarpon Season is also setting into full motion and as the massive schools of fish begin migrating up and down the beaches it’s hard for any dedicated angler to think of anything else. The hunt and hopeful catch of these enormous fish provide an experience unlike anything most people have ever encountered before and should not be missed!
