We had fun this past Monday fishing Sarasota Bay.

Fishing started to heat up in Sarasota Bay this week. The Hartman father and son trip on Monday had a great morning. They caught some hard fighting bluefish, big pompano, a few Spanish mackerel, and a couple of nice trout. They also managed to land a nice sized ladyfish which made for a great day for everyone.

Later that evening Brad, Sara, and Max Warhold also caught bluefish, and pompano as well as snook up to 28 inches under lighted structure in Sarasota Bay.
