Sarasota Bay flats and docks were producing speckled trout, ladyfish. bluefish, Spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, jack cravalle, and a few redfish along with a variety of other species this past week.

On one trip, a nice Bonnethead Shark was landed after quite a battle on light tackle. Anglers are using CAL jigs and bucktailed jigs as well as live shrimp. Remember, the best time to go fishing is when you can and be sure to save some for seed!
