Great summer fishing in Sarasota!
The excellent summer fishing continued in Lido Key and Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida. The pattern was to cast jigs early when the fish were working on the surface then switching to live bait later in the trip. Anglers on fishing trips landed many fish and a variety of species. We saw a dramatic increase in the number of Spanish mackerel, perhaps due to the drop in water temperature. Along with the Spanny-macks, speckled trout, bluefish, gag grouper, mangrove snapper, jack crevelle, ladyfish, and more were landed.
