Capt. Andy Cotton’s Sarasota Fishing Report 2/19/18

Anglers fishing aboard my boat the ‘O’ Fish All’ out of CB’S Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key caught and released pompano, Spanish mackerel, seatrout, bluefish, and snook. With the weather warming up this week so did the fishing.

We are catching good numbers of fish on DOA CAL Shad tails in 3 to 6ft of water. Fly fisherman are catching these same fish using sink-tip fly lines with weighted closers and deceivers.

Tripletail is still a good play for anglers looking to sight cast to fish. Night snook fishing has also improved with the warmer conditions.
