Good speckled trout bite on Siesta Key
The news this week for anglers going out fishing with Capt Jim Klopfer was the increase in speckled trout that showed up throughout the area. Clients had been catching a few small ones but this week some quality fish were landed using jigs. The best spots were along the west side of Sarasota Bay near Longboat Key in 6' of water and in Big Pass just north of Siesta Key. Pompano, bluefish, and plenty of ladyfish also kept rods bent and customers smiling!
