Fishing Report for SW Florida



Anglers fishing with me on the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CBís Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released reds, snook, trout, jacks, bluefish and ladyfish on CAL jigs with shad tails and a variety of flies during the past couple of weeks. Reds, snook and trout ate jigs in the Terra Ceia area while snook, trout, ladyfish, jacks and bluefish ate flies in the same area and in Little Sarasota Bay.

My friends, Rusty Chinnis from Longboat Key, FL and Steve Gibson, from Sarasota, FL, fished the Terra Ceia area with me on Thursday, Dec. 1st. We had fast action with reds and snook to 23Ē and trout to 18Ē on CAL jigs with shad tails. A negative low tide had fish piled up in deeper water.

The following day, fly angler Nick Reding from Longboat Key, FL, fished Gasparilla Sound in Charlotte Harbor with me. He connected with a pair of reds and a mystery fish that ran well into the backing before the hook pulled. We used my Flats Minnow fly and Clousers while fishing outside sand bars and potholes in Gasparilla Sound. We also saw a couple of reds tailing, but they werenít tailing hard and didnít give us good shots.

Fly angler Dave Wahl, from Sterling, IL, fished with me on Sunday and Monday of the past week. We fished Little Sarasota Bay on Sunday morning where Dave had fast action with large ladyfish on Ultra Hair Clouser flies fished on an intermediate fly line. The following morning, we headed for the Terra Ceia area to see if we could find the reds, snook and trout that I had been dialed into a few days before. A warming trend must have scattered the fish because all we could manage was a bluefish and a jack where reds and snook were plentiful several days before. We worked deep grass flats on the south side of Terra Ceia Bay looking for trout, but big ladyfish beat them to the fly every time. Not such a bad problem!

My friend, Dusty Sprague from North Port, FL, joined me for a morning of fishing in Little Sarasota Bay on Friday morning. We caught and released trout, snook and large ladyfish on Clouser and baitfish flies. We worked the ICW channel edges near Midnight Pass searching for pompano or bluefish, but they werenít there that day. An ominous day, a heavy sea fog rolled in on us around noon.

Next weekís tides are favorable for reds to tail on shallow grass flats of Gasparilla and Pine Island Sound. Pothole fishing on the extreme low tides, as we head toward a full moon on Thursday, may also be a good option. Although the best tides are close to the new and full moons, fish will sometimes feed at night on clear nights during a full moon.
