Anglers fishing with me this past have caught snook, redfish, spotted seatrout, Spanish mackeral, and flounder.

Terry Crews of Sarasota, Florida had an awesome day fishing with me in Sarasota Bay. We fished the flats from Bishops Point to Whale Key and caught spotted sea trout, with most of these fish averaging in size from 18" to 22" using DOA Cal Jigs in Keylime and Stark Naked colors.

John Collins, from California, fished a nighttime snook trip with me on Sunday night. We fished the bridge fenders and dock lights in the ICW near Venice Inlet aka Snook Alley. John caught and released several snook on fly, using gurglers and Grassett's Snook minnow fly patterns.

Kurt Tenenbaum and his father-in-law Don McGovern fished with me on Saturday. Despite very windy conditions we fished the east side of Sarasota bay. Don caught and released spotted seatrout using spinning tackle and DOA Cal jigs. Kurt caught and released Spotted Seatrout and a nice 22 1/2" Redfish on a Clouser minnow fly pattern.
