Stable weather results in good fishing on Lido Key, Sarasota, Florida

The weather has been the story this year, with some unusual patterns challenging anglers. Sarasota experienced normal summer patterns over the last week, with light east winds in the morning shifting to an afternoon sea breeze. Grass flats in 6' to 10' of water produced speckled trout, pompano, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, snapper, and ladyfish for clients on Sarasota fishing charters. Bass Assassin jigs in red/gold shiner produced well, as did live shrimp. Fly casters scored on the same species using heavy Clouser patterns in red/gold and chartreuse/white. It looks like we have another week of tough weather coming this week.
