Fast fishing action to end the year on Siesta Key
Holidays mean family fishing for clients booking fishing charters on Siesta Key with me. The best bet for bending the rods and catching fish is to drift the grass beds in 6' to 10' of water and cast Bass Assassin jigs. Anglers caught a ton of fish this week, including speckled trout to 18", bluefish to 4 pounds, pompano to 3 pounds, cobia, grouper, sharks, jacks, and of course a bunch of ladyfish. The Middlegrounds was the top spot for fishing action, but Marina Jacks and Marker #5 also produced fish. Big Sarasota Pass held good numbers of ladyfish. Cold and windy weather is forecast for the first week of 2018, so this might be a good week to do some maintenance.
