We’ve had some very cold mornings that have affected the fishing and slowed it down until the sun gets out and the warmer water prevails. About 8:30 the bite begins to turn on and from there on out it’s a great day.
There are lots of Dolphins in the intercoastal this time of year because of the cold water in the gulf. If you like to fish and see some Dolphins at the same time Sarasota Bay is the place to be. There are plenty of large jack crevalle, trout, and ladyfish in the bays and fun fishing is at a premium.
There are a few pompanos here and there if you’re looking for one for dinner. CB's tackle has some inexpensive combo rod and reel setups with line perfect for seawall fishing while you visit. At the end of your stay give it to a kid and make his or her vacation fantastic.
