“Hot” fishing continues on Lido Key

It has certainly been a very hot summer here in Sarasota, Florida.  The lack of afternoon rains resulted in water temperatures in the upper 80's, which is higher than normal.  Despite that, clients on Lido Key fishing charters experienced good action, especially in the first couple hours of the morning, before it got too hot.  Speckled trout, mangrove snapper, and Spanish mackerel led the list of species taken, with grouper, jacks, small sharks, and ladyfish mixed in.  Chumming with live bait fish over grass flats in 6' to 8' of water near the passes was the most productive technique.
