Hot fishing on Lido Key before severe front

The first severe cold front of the season is moving through Florida this weekend.  Fish generally bite good before the front and that was the case this week.  Anglers on Lido Key fishing charters experienced fast action on the deep grass flats and in the passes.  Bluefish and ladyfish were plentiful with speckled trout and a few nice pompano mixed in and hit Bass Assassin jigs.  The Middlegrounds was the top spot with Big Sarasota Pass a close second.  Action should resume once the weather moves through and the water settles down.  Jack crevelle continue to please clients in the Manatee River and Braden River.  Both fly and spin anglers landed jacks to 5 pounds on baitfish patterns and plugs.
