Live shrimp is still accounting for most of the fish caught this week along with bucktail and CAL jigs. Clients are catching mangrove snapper, black drum, redfish and speckled trout around Sarasota bay flats and docks.

Other species caught were bluefish, Spanish mackerel, jack crevalle, and ladyfish. All in all, it's a great time of year to be on the water with a rod and reel in your hands.

Remember, the best time to go fishing is when you can and be sure to save some for seed!
