lido key speckled trout

Good summer fishing on Lido Key!

We have not had much rain and water temperatures are in the high 80's, but the fishing is still very good for anglers fishing Lido Key on the deep grass flats throughout Sarasota Bay.  Speckled trout and magrove snapper were the top catches, with Spanish mackerel, jack crevelle, gag grouper, bluefish, and ladyfish also bending rods for anglers on fishing charters.  Live threadfin herring are plentiful and easy to catch and using them as chum to draw in the gamefish was the best approach.  Rains should lower the water temperatures and even improve the fishing.  This action should continue into the earely fall.
