Fall Fishing Charters

The fishing in the Bradenton and Sarasota areas remains very strong. I have been mostly fishing in the inland bays and grass flats of Sarasota and Terra Ceia bays. We have been catching good numbers of fish on every trip lately. The fishing will remain great even with the winds this week since we are approaching the full moon on October 5th. Lots of snook are being landed with slot fish in the mix and also some redfish are mixed in with the snook. The trout bite has really picked up this past week and should remain strong with the full moon. Pilchards will remain the best bait for these fish on the flats through the fall.
The strong, consistent winds this week, cooler mornings and the amount of daylight dwindling is giving us the first taste of fall. This time of year can be magical on the flats as the fish gorge themselves in preparation for cold winter days and scarce amounts of bait. This is the time of year we have potential to catch 100 fish in a full day fishing charter. We can usually get everyone on the boat an “inshore slam” which consists of a snook, redfish, and a trout. Half day trips produce great numbers as well.
The weather is finally cooling down and the fishing remains HOT! If you are looking to get in on the action and have a fun day on the water in the Bradenton, Sarasota areas I have openings for October and November, give me a call at 813-220-8725.
