Fishing Reports

Sheepshead fishing is back!

This strong cold front that passed through the Bradenton and Sarasota areas the last 5 days severely dropped the water temperatures by about 10 degrees. This paired with a northwest wind has put a damper on the snook fishing and the mackeral fishing, but the sheepshead are a great target on our fishing charters when the water gets cold! They are also great to eat and are perfect fishing for beginner and kid anglers.

Sheepshead willingly eat a live shrimp or piece of shrimp fished around any structure, some of the areas that we have been catching sheepshead we have also stumbled upon the bonus flounder lurking around in the sand surrounding the structures. The redfish have not seemed to mind the cold too much either we are still catching them around some of the docks in the river. The weather may be a little chilly but we are still finding fish and reeling them in!!

If you are looking for a fun, professional fishing charter in the Anna Maria Island, Bradenton or Sarasota area give me a call at 813-220-8725.
