Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 3/26/2018

by on Mar.27, 2018, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action catching and releasing trout and blues in Sarasota Bay on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms during the past week. Water temperature warmed back to the high 60’s and action improved.

My brother Joey Grassett and Christine Johnson, both from Seaford, DE, visited for a few days and had some action catching and releasing trout to 20” and blues to about 3-pounds on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms while fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me.

Fishing shallow water for big trout, snook and reds should be a good option. There should also be good action with trout, blues, Spanish mackerel, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Fishing dock lights in the ICW at night is always a good option for snook and more. Our natural resources are under constant pressure, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Gasparilla Sound, FL Fishing Report for 3/17/2018

by on Mar.18, 2018, under Bradenton and Sarasota, FLORIDA'S BIG BEND AND EMERALD COAST, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action catching and releasing trout in Sarasota Bay, snook at night in the ICW and trout and redfish in Gasparilla Sound near Boca Grande on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails during the past week. The best action was catching and releasing snook on flies in the ICW at night.

Monday’s trip was cancelled due to wind and cool temperatures as a front moved through that day. Anna Maria Island winter resident Tony Merlis and his daughter, Jen Merlis, from MN, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday and had some action catching releasing trout on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails.

Martin Marlowe, from NY, and his son Bruce Marlowe, from SC, fished the ICW me on Wednesday night. It was Martin’s last trip with me before heading back north for the year and they finished strong. Despite cool water and a cold north wind, they had good action catching releasing numerous snook on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly.

Lynn Skipper, from Apollo Beach, FL, fished the backcountry of Gasparilla Sound near Boca Grande with me on Thursday and Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL and Stephen Liska, from Naples, fished the same area on Friday. With water temperatures in shallow water in the low 60’s to start, fishing was challenging. We caught and released a few trout and a red on CAL jigs with shad tails.

The fishing world lost a gem when fly fishing legend, Lefty Kreh, passed away a few days ago. He was an author, photographer, outdoor writer and fly casting guru. A world class fly angler and casting instructor, he traveled the world pursuing fly fishing and sharing his knowledge. As rich as he was with knowledge, a conversation with him was like chatting with a family member or neighbor. I was fortunate to have had him as a guest on my boat twice. His wit and down home personality endeared him to many. He will be missed!

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 1/14/2018

by on Jan.15, 2018, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had decent action with trout and bluefish in Sarasota Bay on flies, DOA Deadly Combos and CAL jigs with shad tails and snook and blues on flies in the ICW at night during the past week. Sunny afternoons and calm winds allowed the water to warm back into the 60’s following last week’s strong front and trout moved into shallow water.

Marshall Dinerman, from Atlanta, GA fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday afternoon. With water temperature in the high 50’, action was slow. We caught and released a few trout on CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA Deadly Combos on deep grass flats. The largest trout was caught on a CAL jig with a shad tail in less than 2’ of water, which was also the warmest water.

Keith McClintock and Victor Feldman, both from IL, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Wednesday. It was slow to start, but trout turned on in the afternoon as the sun warmed shallow water to as warm as 65 degrees in a couple of spots. Snook also moved onto the edges of bars to warm up.

With water temperatures back in the 60’s after several days of warming, Martin Marlowe, from NY, fished the ICW with me on Thursday night. He had good action catching and releasing snook and several blues around dock lights on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly. Fish were actively feeding and swimming away strong. Afternoons and evenings will usually have the warmest water of the day, as the sun warms shallow water that flushes out of bays with outgoing tides.

 

MartinMarloweVeniceGrassettSnookMinnowflynightsnook

Another front pushed through on Friday, beginning a few days of below average temperatures. Steve Kost, from Lakewood Ranch, FL and his son Nick Kost, from NY, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Saturday. It was very windy, rough and tough to find any protected water to fish. Despite the tough conditions, they had some action with bluefish, trout and ladyfish on flies. I worked with Nick on his fly casting and he scored his first fish on a fly, a ladyfish, in 25-mph wind!

The toughest fishing this time of year is usually the day of a front or the day after, when the wind blows from the northwest and cold air comes rushing in causing water temperatures to fall. Water temperatures may drop back into the 50’s next week, so temperature sensitive fish should be avoided at that time. Fish the windows of stable weather between fronts for the best action. Sunny afternoons with some protection from the wind should fish better this time of year due to warmer water. There should be good action with trout, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for larger trout and reds should also be a good option.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 1/7/2018

by on Jan.07, 2018, under Bradenton and Sarasota, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action with trout, pompano and reds on CAL jigs with shad tails in Sarasota Bay during the past week. A strong front early in the week, followed by a reinforcing front, forced the cancellation or postponement of several trips last week. However I was able to get out one day later in the week when conditions were better.

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL, Rick Anderson and brothers Garrett and Nate Anderson, also from IL, fished Sarasota Bay with me in a couple of shifts on Thursday.  Action wasn’t fast, but they caught some quality fish. We fished deep grass flats early in the day and they caught and released several trout to 18” on CAL jigs with shad tails. With a negative low tide, some sun and protection from the wind, we fished shallow water in the afternoon and found redfish concentrated in a few spots. They caught several reds to 26” on CAL jigs with shad tails. Nate finished the day up strong by landing a nice pompano also on a CAL jig with a shad tail!

RickAndersonSBCALShadred2

With water temperatures in the mid 50’s, sub-tropical species such as snook shouldn’t be targeted. Other species that are more tolerant of cold water, such as blues, reds, sheepshead and flounder are better options. Sunny afternoons with some protection from the wind should fish best. With high air temperatures in the mid 70’s forecast by the middle of next week, water temperatures will rise and there should be good action with trout, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for larger trout and reds should also be a good option.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 1/1/2018

by on Jan.01, 2018, under Bradenton and Sarasota, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing trout, blues and pompano on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay during the past week. Hefty bluefish provided great action for fly anglers!

Alan Sugar and Ray Hutchinson, both from MI, had good action fly fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday. They caught and released trout and several nice bluefish on Ultra Hair Clouser flies.

Indy Kimura and Mireya Castillo, both from Salt Lake city, UT also had some action on their first saltwater fly fishing trip in Sarasota Bay with me on Thursday. They had good action catching and releasing numerous trout and several big blues on Ultra Hair Clouser flies.

 

MireyaCastilloSBClouserflytrout2

Keith McClintock, from Lake Forest, IL, Victor Feldman, from Champagne, IL and Steve McClintock, from Pittsburgh, PA fished Sarasota Bay with me on Friday.  We fished skinny water in the morning and they caught a couple of nice trout and a 5-1/2-pound pompano on CAL jigs with shad tails. We fished deep grass flats in the afternoon where they had good action with blues, also on CAL jigs with shad tails.

Barry Slee and Maria Horvat, both from Lake Forest, IL, fished deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me on Saturday. They had good action catching numerous blues and trout on CAL jigs with shad tails.

There should be good action with trout, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for larger trout and reds is improving due to cooler water. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for catch and release snook with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option after the weather stabilizes following today’s front. I would like to thank the many long time, repeat clients that fished with me during 2017 and wish a happy 2018 to all.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 12/23/2017

by on Dec.23, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing trout, blues, pompano and a cobia on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay and tripletail in the coastal gulf on flies during the past week.

With plenty of sun and calm seas, fly anglers had good action sight fishing tripletail in the coastal gulf on Monday, catching and releasing several. Although false albacore moved on after the last front, tripletail action remains good and some larger fish have moved into the area.

Kevin Smith, from West Chester, PA, had good action fly fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me on Wednesday. He caught and released numerous trout and a pompano on Ultra Hair Clouser flies.

Alan Sugar, from MI, got in on the action with trout in Sarasota Bay on Ultra Hair Clouser flies with me on Thursday. We started the trip off with a bang, catching and releasing a 34” cobia on a CAL jig with a shad tail on the first cast of the day! Adam Theiler, from London, also had some action in Sarasota Bay with me on Friday, catching and releasing trout on Ultra Hair Clouser flies fished on a 6-wt rod.

There should be good action with trout, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Tripletail should also be a good option in the coastal gulf depending on conditions. Shallow water action for larger trout and reds is improving due to cooler water. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for catch and release snook with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option.

Capt. Ray Markham’s Florida Sportsman Fishing4Cast- West Central- December 22-24, 2017

by on Dec.22, 2017, under TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

A string of beautiful weather days should allow holiday anglers to get on the water if desired. However, with the first day of winter arriving on this Thursday, the 21st, don’t expect to see anything that feels like winter. Go with what you know according to the water temperature.

OFFSHORE

As we approach the gag grouper closure at the end of the month, anglers are finding these fish in as shallow as 10-feet of water from inside Tampa Bay all along the beaches. A good rule of thumb is to find some hard bottom or structure where you may find stone crab traps. You may do double duty here as tripletails are also being taken on the crab trap floats and lines that mark the traps. Live pinfish with a trimmed tail to slow the baitfish down have been top baits for gags. DOA Shrimp or the live version rigged on a light jig head or under a popping cork with a 2-foot leader will take these tasty fish. While gags are found shallow this time of year, you’ll also find them well out into the Gulf.

Kingfish have slowed with the water temperature drop in the Gulf. The temperature has dropped into the lower 60’s but with this warm weather, it could bring surface temps back up to bring in some Spanish or king mackerel again. Bait schools scattered on the last cold front, but could re-group again by the weekend.

Although the bite has slowed, anglers continue to find some hogfish despite the temperature drop. Anglers say downsizing tackle is the secret. Using small-to-medium size live shrimp on 15-pound class tackle with a long fluorocarbon leader will get it done, but patience is the key. Hogs are somewhat shy and wait to chew as all the other reef fish feed. Be prepared to lose a lot of bait, as everything eats a live shrimp.

INSHORE

The recent warming trend has snook stalled that were moving into the backcountry. Look for them on points and over dark bottom adjacent to channels. Water temperatures back on the rise approaching the 70’s will make topwater lures effective again, but jigs will out-pace them. The 3-inch CAL Shad has been my top producer for catch and release snookin’.

Redfish have been tough lately, but doable. Smaller jerk baits have been deadly. The MirrOlure Lil’ John rigged on a light jig head has been a top producer of reds laid up on shallow backwater flats and in potholes on sandy bottoms. Where I’m still finding pinfish, both the Eppinger Rex Spoon and MirrOlure MirrOdine 37MR49 have been hit. The new MirrOdine is the largest model they make, and I’m replacing the hooks with slightly smaller and lighter hooks to make the lure buoyant so I can work it in 6-inches of water. If pinfish or sardines are present, USE THIS LURE! You won’t be sorry.

Trout fishing has taken a big swing upward. Look for these fish in potholes on the low tides. Coming off this past Monday’s new moon have produced some exceptionally low tides, pushing these fish into the holes and channels.

Flounder are making an appearance again around passes and on sand bottom where it meets shell, grass, rock, or a change in depth. Jigs worked slowly on the bottom are hard to beat.

Pompano have disappeared, but a brief showing near Bunces Pass might reveal that more fish remain in the area. Doc’s Goofy Jigs have been a go-to bait here in yellow with a pink teaser.

FRESHWATER

Bass fishing has been taking off. Anglers fishing spinnerbaits at Lakes Tarpon and Seminole report good action with white or white and chartreuse colors. Crappie fishing should improve as the weather cools again. ‘Til then…I’ll catch ya later!

FWC APP

The new FWC Fish/Hunt FL app for your phone is an amazing resource. Download it and you’ll have all the up to date information on rules, regulations, and some very good information on how, when, and where to hunt and fish.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 12/16/2017

by on Dec.17, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota, TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

With water temperatures in the low to mid 60’s, we are in a winter fishing pattern now. Deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay have been producing the best action and variety. Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing trout on flies, CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA Deadly Combos during the past week. In addition, fly anglers also caught and released several blues and Spanish mackerel.

John, from Longboat Key, and Drew fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday and Thursday. They had good action catching and releasing numerous trout to 18” on CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA Deadly Combos.

JohnSBCALShadtrout
Fly anglers, Jerry and Peggy Brenner from NH, fished deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay with me on Wednesday. They had some action catching and releasing trout, bluefish and a Spanish mackerel on Ultra Hair Clouser flies fished on sink tip fly lines. Holmes Beach and Sarasota winter residents, Bill Morrison and Gary Marple, also had some fly fishing action with trout in Sarasota Bay with me on Friday.

There should be good action with trout, blues and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for larger trout and reds should be improving due to cooler water. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for catch and release snook with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Report for 12/9/2017

by on Dec.09, 2017, under Bradenton and Sarasota, Siesta Key to Boca Grande, Tampa Bay, East and South Shore

Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing false albacore (little tunny) and tripletail in the coastal gulf on flies and trout and pompano in Sarasota Bay on CAL jigs with shad tails during the past week.

MichaelRobbSarasotaflyalbie3
Michael Robb, from Buffalo, fished the coastal gulf with me on Monday and had good action catching and releasing several albies on a fly. In addition he also caught and released his first tripletail on a fly. Michael’s dad, Larry, joined him on Wednesday but despite a stable weather pattern, the action with albies in the coastal gulf ended as baitfish moved on.

Walter Poxon, from MN, and Bill Poxon, from Sarasota, celebrated Bill’s birthday with their annual fishing trip with me on Tuesday in Sarasota Bay. They had steady action catching and releasing numerous trout and a nice pompano on the west side of the bay on CAL jigs with shad tails.

With the passing of this weekend’s front, water temperatures will plummet and fish will move. Migratory species could reappear following the front depending on conditions. After the weather stabilizes, there should also be good action with trout, blues and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Shallow water action for snook, trout and reds is improving due to cooler water. Fishing lighted docks and bridges in the ICW for catch and release snook with flies and DOA Lures should also be a good option.
