Sarasota Trout Come Back
Grab the hat and sunscreen – let's go fishing...
Aboard the Reelin & Chillin anglers caught TROUT, REDFISH, FLOUNDER and BLACK DRUM on in-shore trips. Fishing grass flats provided plenty of trout action using live shrimp or white bait. Spending a few minutes at each location until we found the fish worked best. Redfish and black drum were found around structure mostly docks and oysters near mangroves. No more than 20 minutes would be spent at a location without a bite. Secret was to keep moving until we located the fish.
I had a blast with the Wieland family Bruce and Shaleen with sons Alex(11) and Andy(8) Everybody caught fish with a bunch of trout being the "catch of the day" not to mention a nice flounder to go along with dinner. I think the crazy catch however was the stingray that I thought was a huge redfish at first. Way to go Wieland family.
Bait used was live hand-picked shrimp from Hart's Landing Bait located at 920 John Ringling Causeway in Sarasota Florida.
