Stan, that is one healthy looking snook.

Stan, that is one healthy looking snook you landed.

You could not have asked for a nicer late December day then when I took out father Stan son Todd and Troy for a morning fishing trip on little Sarasota Bay.

These guys were fishermen and knew what to do when they hooked a fish. Picture of Stan holding one of the nice snook they caught. Also caught were redfish jacks and ladyfish.

The fishing is heating up along with the weather. With the warming trend in the weather, the fishing has really started to pick up.

These Kentuckians were able to get the inshore slam.

The fishing Kentuckians as I like to call them were able to get the inshore slam which included a redfish, trout, and snook. Most of our fish were caught on live shrimp with a cork however we did catch Jacks on some topwater plugs.

All fish were released safely. Along with some good fishing my bunch witnessed some dolphins jumping out of the water and doing acrobats. It was another chamber of commerce day on the water.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.
