Gulf of Mexico

Good fishing off the Lido Key beaches

Northeast winds have resulted in cool, calm water in the inshore Gulf of Mexico of late.  This causes baitfish to school up in huge numbers just off of our area beaches.  The forage then attracts the gamefish; Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, false albacore, sharks, and more!  Mackerel and albies will terrorize helpless baitfish on the surface, creating a very exciting fishing experience as a plug or jig cast into the fray will usually get eaten.  A ten pounf false albacore on light spinning tackle is about as fun as it gets!  Clients on Lido Key fishing charters scored on albies, mackerel, jacks, and ladyfish this week in the inshore Gulf of Mexico just off of the Sarasota beaches.  This action will continue until it gets too cold, probably around Christmas.
