Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 8/5/2017

by on Aug.06, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Fly anglers fishing with me recently, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, continued to have some action with tarpon.  Despite poor conditions with the passing of Tropical Storm Emily, we got out for a couple of trips. When fish were high in the water column and visibility was good, we had the best action. We had about a dozen shots and jumped one tarpon on one of the trips.

Tarpon fishing in the gulf should still be an option depending on conditions. You should find juvenile tarpon in creeks, canals and turning basins. This is also a good time frame to sight fish for snook in the surf. However, snook season remains closed on the west coast of Florida until Sep 1st, so please handle them gently and release them quickly. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for snook and tarpon with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota , FL Fishing Report for 3/19/2017

by on Mar.19, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released trout in Sarasota Bay on flies, CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA shrimp during the past week. Trout, blues, Spanish mackerel, pompano and more should be a good option on deep grass flats and passes of Sarasota Bay. You should also find larger trout in shallow water along with snook and reds when conditions are good.

Look for action in the coastal gulf to take off with king and Spanish mackerel, cobia and tripletail. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for snook with flies and DOA Lures continues to be a good option.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Gasparilla Sound, FL Fishing Report for 2/26/2017

by on Feb.26, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released trout in Sarasota Bay and trout and snook in Gasparilla Sound on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms during the past week. The best action was in shallow water, where long casts with spinning tackle paid off.

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL and Jim Pociask, from Sarasota, FL, fished the backcountry of Gasparilla sound near Boca Grande with me on Monday. They caught and released trout to 21” and snook to 26” on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms.

Siesta Key and Longboat Key winter residents, Joe Brinkmeyer and Jim Brady, and Ray Brinkmeyer, from Indianapolis, IN, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Thursday. We worked deep grass flats on the west side of the bay and they had steady action with trout to 18” on CAL jigs with shad tails.

Capt. Ed Hurst and I were the instructors for a CB’s Saltwater Outfitters Orvis-Endorsed Fly Fishing School on Saturday. Students received instruction in fly casting basics, line control, shooting line and the roll cast. We also covered leader construction, fly selection and saltwater fly fishing techniques. Contact CB’s Saltwater Outfitters at (941) 349-4400 or info@cbsoutfitters.com to make reservations for the next school on Mar 25th.

You should find snook, larger trout and reds in shallow water when conditions are good. Wading with a fly rod or making long casts with spinning tackle are good tactics for fishing shallow water. Catch and release night snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges in the ICW with flies and DOA Lures continues to be a good option. Trout should also be a good option on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Jensen Beach & Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 10/8/2016

by on Oct.08, 2016, under CAPT. TOMMY'S BOOK SIGNINGS, TALKS, TRAVELS, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

I traveled to Jensen Beach on Florida’s east coast on Sunday afternoon, 10/2 to fish the DOA Fishing Lures “Outdoor Writer’s Festival” out of River Palm Cottages and Fish Camp. The annual event features a couple of days of fishing with outdoor writers from around the country and other fishing industry sponsors. It’s always good to see old friends and see what’s new in the fishing world. New from DOA Fishing Lures this year are the “PT”, a weedless top water, surface walking bait and a new and improved 2 ¾” DOA Shrimp. Good friends, good music, good food and good fishing!

We worked docks in the Indian River where we caught and released snook and jacks on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms. Surprisingly several bonefish, which usually aren’t found that far north, were caught and released on CAL jigs with jerk worms by other anglers. In addition to bonefish, anglers caught and released snook, trout, reds, jacks and tarpon on a variety of DOA Lures. A few anglers headed over to Lake Okeechobee where they had good top water action with DOA PT’s on largemouth bass. Their “mullet run” was in full swing, which had jacks and tarpon blowing up in mullet schools. They were fast moving and tough to get on but several anglers hooked up with huge jacks on DOA Airheads and PT’s. I’ll be at the DOA booth today (Saturday, 10/8) at the Florida Sportsman Fishing Expo at the fairgrounds in Tampa so stop by to say hello and check out the new stuff.

Back in Sarasota, anglers fishing Sarasota Bay with me during the past week, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released trout and jacks on DOA Lures. Although there is still some red tide in areas of Sarasota Bay, particularly close to passes, there are areas that are fine.

John Freeman and Dave Willer, both from MN, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Thursday. We fished the east side of the bay, which had good, clean water. They had steady action catching and releasing trout and jacks on DOA Deadly Combos and CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms. Friday’s trip was postponed due to high winds associated with Hurricane Matthew.

I look for action in the coastal gulf with false albacore (little tunny) and Spanish mackerel to take off as the water cools down and baitfish become more plentiful. Tripletail will also become a good option since stone crab traps are being placed in the coastal gulf, increasing the amount of available structure for them. Night snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges in the ICW with flies and DOA Lures should be a good option. You might also find a few juvenile tarpon and reds in the lights along with snook. In addition, there should be good action with trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota Bay, FL Fishing Report for 10/1/2016

by on Oct.01, 2016, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing Sarasota Bay with me during the past week, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released juvenile tarpon, trout and jacks on flies. Although there is red tide in some areas of Sarasota Bay, particularly close to passes, there are areas that are fine. Red tide may actually concentrate fish in some areas as fish move away from affected areas.

Marshall Dinerman, from the Atlanta area, fished deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me on Monday. He had good action catching and releasing trout and jacks on Ultra Hair Clouser flies. We also fished a backwater area where he caught and released a juvenile tarpon on my Grassett Flats Bunny fly with a 6-wt. His first tarpon on a fly!

I had an instructional fly fishing trip in Sarasota Bay on Tuesday. We worked on basics and were shooting line and catching and releasing a few fish before the end of the trip. This is a good option for beginning fly anglers, since it is different when fishing from the deck of a boat with different fly lines and weighted flies as opposed to casting on grass or from the shore of a lake.

I look for action in the coastal gulf with false albacore (little tunny) and Spanish mackerel to take off as the water cools down and baitfish become more plentiful. Tripletail will also become a good option as stone crab traps hit the water next week, increasing the amount of available structure for them. Night snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges in the ICW with flies and DOA Lures should be a good option. You might also find a few juvenile tarpon and reds in the lights along with snook. In addition, there should be good action with trout, Spanish mackerel, bluefish and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay.

Reboot the Fishing Calendar–Capt. Ray Markham, April 22, 2016

by on Apr.23, 2016, under TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Most years I’d be looking at the calendar on my computer about now and I’d be thinking that we should be getting toward the tail end of kingfish season. This year has been different. It seems we have had a blast of fish running up from the south just this week. Sure kings will be around most of the year, but when the spring run is on, usually fish come from the Key’s northward in waves as waters warm. But this past winter was quite warm, so I might have expected an early run with an earlier ending to the bulk of the fish migrating north.

Usually about mid-March I start seeing tarpon moving out of the Manatee River and backcountry waters. These are mostly resident fish that spend winters as well as the rest of the year here. But I had not really seen that many fish. The real onslaught of poons traditionally shows up on the beaches in May. With only a week or so away from May, I’ve finally seen a decent showing of tarpon. Much of last week and the weekend had been difficult fishing due to high winds, but once the winds laid down, we started to see some tarpon roll. This early showing could have something to do with the fact that the full moon falls on Thursday, April 21st. Migrations of fish as well as spawning rituals are known to occur around full moons and new moons. So, if I was glancing at the fish calendar trying to see what should be going on, things might be a bit out of whack.

A look at the calendar on April 30, the last day of the month, will reveal that it’s the last day of snook season. Snook on the West Coast close for the summer. But with the full moon on the 21st, that out of whack calendar may see some snook spawning in the passes. That would be nearly a month early, but as a rule, snook begin spawning from around the full moon in May and run through September. However, with as many big snook as I’ve seen near the passes and on barrier islands over the past couple of weeks, I wouldn’t doubt it if these linesiders just might be lining up to begin an early spawn.

One change on the calendar for May 1 in the northwest region of the state is that the redfish bag limit will drop back to one fish per angler from two fish, with an 8 fish boat limit. The region south of Fred Howard Park, called the south region, remains as one fish per person but with an 8 fish boat limit as well.

Prime time for mangrove snapper is generally around June or July, but how about all the big mangos doing the tango in Tampa Bay right now? Just a short hop off the beaches and now you’re into 5-pound mangos in April!

Yes, it’s April, and yes, the fishing calendar seems a bit messed up. But the next time you pull up an old boot while fishing, throw it back, because it’s time for a re-boot.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Gasparilla Sound, FL Fishing Report for 3/6/2016

by on Mar.07, 2016, under Bradenton and Sarasota, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Anglers fishing with me on my Action Craft flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, pompano and ladyfish in Sarasota Bay, trout and redfish in Gasparilla Sound, tripletail in the coastal gulf and snook at night in the ICW near Venice on CAL jigs with shad tails and flies during the past week. With the water temperature up into the mid 60’s, there was good action on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with trout, bluefish and more, tripletail in the coastal gulf and snook at night in the ICW.

Martin Marlowe, from NY, fished a couple of days in Sarasota Bay with me on Monday and Saturday. He was joined by his son, Bruce Marlowe from RI, on Saturday. They had good action with trout to 18”, bluefish and ladyfish on CAL jigs with shad tails and Ultra Hair Clouser flies fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Martin also snook fished with me in the ICW near Venice on Sunday evening and had great action catching and releasing snook on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly.

Joe Polidoro and his father-in-law, Murray Bring, both from Sarasota fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday and had good action catching and releasing trout, ladyfish and a pompano on Ultra Hair Clouser flies. Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL, fished Gasparilla Sound near Boca Grande with me on Wednesday. We worked edges of bars and backcountry areas where he had some action with trout and a red on CAL jigs with shad tails.

Steve Kost, from Lakewood Ranch, FL and his guest, John Makovitch, from Pinehurst, NC, fished Sarasota Bay and the coastal gulf with me on Thursday. John caught and released his first tripletail on a DOA Shrimp in the coastal gulf and his first fish on a fly in Sarasota Bay! They also had good action with trout and a Spanish mackerel on Ultra Hair Clouser flies and CAL jigs with shad tails on both shallow and deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shane Nichols, from MA, fished the coastal gulf with me on Friday and had good action catching and releasing several tripletail and getting some shots at others with DOA Shrimp.

I gave a presentation on “Fly Fishing the West Coast of Florida” at the News Channel 8 Outdoors Expo & Boat Show at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa on Sunday and spent some time at the DOA Fishing Lures booth. The new version of the DOA Shrimp and the new DOA Snake were featured at the show and should be a hit!

There is still time to sign up for CB’s Saltwater Outfitters Orvis-Endorsed Fly Fishing School next Saturday, March 12. The school will cover fly casting basics, line control, shooting line and the roll cast. Leader construction, fly selection and saltwater fly fishing techniques will also be covered in the class. The course, designed for beginning and intermediate fly casters, will focus on basics but also work with intermediate casters on correcting faults and improving casting skills. Cost for the school, which will run from 8:30 AM to 3 PM, is $150 per person and includes the use of Orvis fly tackle, a text book and lunch. Contact CB’s Saltwater Outfitters at (941) 349-4400 or info@cbsoutfitters.com to make reservations.

Tripletail should be a good option in the coastal gulf when conditions are good. Trout, bluefish and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay and night snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges in the ICW with flies and DOA Lures should also be good options. Look for reds and big trout mixed with mullet schools or cruising shallow flats and edges of bars in Sarasota Bay and backcountry areas of Charlotte Harbor and lower Tampa Bay.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Terra Ceia Bay, FL Fishing Report for 2/28/2016

by on Feb.28, 2016, under Bradenton and Sarasota, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Anglers fishing with me on my Action Craft flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released snook at night in the ICW near Venice on flies, trout and ladyfish in Sarasota Bay on flies and trout and redfish in Terra Ceia Bay on CAL jigs with shad tails during the past week. The best action was with snook at night and on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with trout and ladyfish.

Jerry Poslusny, from Palmetto, FL, fished the ICW near Venice with me on Monday night. He caught and released more than 20 snook on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly. We were in a good weather window between fronts and with a good tide, snook responded well by gorging themselves on glass minnows and they ate our flies just as well.

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL and Jack McCullough, fished the Terra Ceia Bay area with me on Tuesday. We worked edges of bars and backcountry areas where they had some action with trout and a red on CAL jigs with shad tails. The next 2 days were blown out as a front passed and the wind blew 20 to 30-mph on Wednesday and Thursday.

Frank Zaffino, from Rochester, NY, and his son, Frank, from Pittsburgh, PA, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Friday. With the wind still at 15 to 20-mph out of the north, we headed south into Roberts Bay where they had steady action catching and releasing ladyfish and trout on Ultra Hair Clousers and my Flats Bunny flies.

Ryan Pflugner, from Sarasota, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Saturday. I found some big trout in skinny water and he had good action sight fishing them. He caught and released a couple of over slot trout and had some shots at others on my Grassett Flats Bunny fly. With bright sun and crystal clear water, it was fun to watch the trout eat a nicely presented fly!

I will be at the News Channel 8 Outdoors Expo & Boat Show (http://wfla.com/outdoors-expo-boat-show/), at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, next Sunday, March 6.  Formerly the Frank Sargeant Outdoors Show, the show is now hosted by Capt. Mike Anderson of the “Reel Animals” TV show and is the largest outdoors show in Florida. I’ll be giving a presentation on the main stage at 11:30 AM on “Fly Fishing the West Coast of Florida”. I’ll also be at the DOA Fishing Lures booth giving my friends Mark Nichols and Capt. Ed Zyak a hand, so stop by to say hello and check out the latest from DOA.

Look for reds and big trout mixed with mullet schools or cruising shallow flats and edges of bars in Sarasota Bay and backcountry areas of Charlotte Harbor and lower Tampa Bay. Catch and release night snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges in the ICW with flies and DOA Lures should be a good option. Trout, bluefish and more should also be a good option on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay.

Season opener bite for snook could be hot with warm weather- By Ray Markham

by on Feb.26, 2016, under TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

The calendar still says winter but this past week might make you think that spring has sprung. Changing weather conditions will dictate what you need to do to stay on feeding fish. I marked water temperatures in a variety of shallow water venues from Old Tampa Bay to Mullet Key that pushed the mercury up over 75-degrees. That’s the kind of water temperature you might see in late March, and what I saw this week could be previews of coming attractions to the Bay Area. Warm shallows turned snook on and pushed Spanish mackerel in on the edges of the Gulf and just inside passes from Charlotte Harbor all the way up to John’s Pass. Next week’s warming trend could make Tuesday’s season opener for snook productive and also trigger a run of both king and Spanish mackerel.

The front that moved in at mid-week is moving quickly and will clear the state in short order, but not without a quick drop in temperature. With air temperatures nudging the 80-degree mark on Tuesday, and the prediction for Wednesday and Thursday to take a steep dip perhaps into the 40’s in the Tampa Bay area, fish will undoubtedly head for deeper water. The shallows of the flats will likely look like a ghost town until water temperatures move back up with next week’s warm up.

Capt. Rick Grassett, of Sarasota, and his anglers have been fishing the Venice area at night with fly rods working dock lights and bridge fenders catching and releasing as many as 20-snook a night. Water temperatures have been in the upper 60’s. Most affected by this quick drop in air and water temperature will be snook, effectively putting a halt to the bite temporarily.

The sheepshead bite has been outrageous this week, coupled with the spawning full moon and the incoming cold front. The bite turned on and fired up sheepies that were reported up to 10-pounds. These monster striped convict fish are cooperative even in cold and inclement weather.

If fresh water is your preference, take a page out of Shelby Bachnik’s book and head for Lake Tarpon. Bachnik has been working the lake in about 10-feet of water with crappie jigs and small minnows, catching good numbers of slab crappie. These freshwater panfish are prized for their tasty white fillets and can be found in lakes like Tarpon that offer some protection from the elements. Bachnik says look for the north end of the lake to be productive.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Gasparilla Sound, FL Fishing Report for 1/23/2016

by on Jan.23, 2016, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me on my Action Craft flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released snook, trout and redfish on CAL jigs with shad tails in Gasparilla Sound and trout and ladyfish on flies in Sarasota Bay during the past week. Cold air and water, wind and rain were an issue, causing the cancellation of a couple of trips.

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL, fished the backcountry of Gasparilla Sound near Boca Grande with me on Tuesday. A very low tide and cool water had snook concentrated in a few spots. He had good action catching and releasing about 10 snook to 27”, trout to 20” and a red to complete his slam on CAL jigs with shad tails.

Dick Striano, from MA, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Thursday. We worked deep grass flats where he caught and released ladyfish and trout on Ultra Hair Clouser flies fished on sink tip fly lines. The best action was close to passes where water temperatures were more stable.

Look for reds and big trout mixed with mullet schools on shallow flats and edges of bars in Sarasota Bay and backcountry areas of Charlotte Harbor and lower Tampa Bay. Trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and more should be a good option on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Catch and release snook fishing around lighted docks and bridges with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option as long as water temperatures don’t dip too low.
