Siesta Key Tarpon

Tarpon fishing Siesta Key in Sarasota,FL

Some would say Tarpon fishing is almost like hunting. There is a huge thrill in seeking and catching this species. It is my favorite time of year! Siesta key beaches in Sarasota, FL is a highway for Tarpon during their yearly migration running between Egmont Key and Boca Grande Pass.

False Albacore

Coastal Gulf fishing in Sarasota

The coastal gulf along Longboat Key and Siesta Key provides an opportunity to sight cast with lures and flies to catch a variety of species. Triple tail can be spotted around crab pot floats and targeted with a DOA shrimp or small baitfish fly patterns.  False Albacore are definitely a favorite with fly anglers, these fish are sight fished and will easily take you in to backing on an 8wt fly reel. Near shore, wrecks, reefs and hard bottom will hold Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish.


Sarasota Bay Redfish on fly

Fly fishing in Sarasota

Sarasota has a large variety of areas to fish including shallow grass flats, oyster bars, docks, mangrove covered shorelines and deeper grass flats near the passes. Whether using flies or artificial lures on spinning tackle, there are many opportunities to catch Snook, Spotted Sea Trout, Redfish, Flounder and other inshore species.

Night Snookin!

Night Snook fishing Sarasota

Snook fishing in Sarasota and Snook Alley in Venice, FL. Snook gather around bridge fenders and lighted docks at night to feed on small baitfish and shrimp. While spin fishing for Snook with artificial lures can be a lot of fun, however on 6 to 8wt fly rods it is a blast. I find it more challenging and you can “match the hatch”, meaning you can match the size of the fly you are using to what they are feedingFollow me on:
