Capt. Andy Cotton’s Sarasota, Fl Fishing Report 5/7/18


 Anglers fishing aboard my boat the O’ Fish All out of CB’S Saltwater outfitters on Siesta Key caught and released spotted seatrout, Spanish mackerel, blues, jacks and snook. The most productive areas have been the deeper  grass flats around Sarasota bay for bigger trout and a variety of other species DOA Shad tails have been working the best in Arkansas glow color. Fly anglers are scoring with sink tip fly lines and heavily weighted clouser fly patterns. Night snook fishing has been very productive with small white fly patterns and live shrimp. Tarpon are starting to move down the coast.  We are getting some shots on fly while posting up on the shallow sand bars. Beach fishing for tarpon should improve over the next week
