Banana River reports

Rick Grassett (Capt. Rick Grassett) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota & Terra Ceia, FL Fishing Report for 3/27 through 4/4/2018 Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action on a trip in the Terra Ceia area catching and releasing several snook, reds and trout on CAL jigs with shad tails recently. We also had some action on several trips in Sarasota Bay catching and releasing trout on CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms, DOA Deadly Combos and flies. Mike Perez, from Sarasota, and his 9-year old granddaughter, Harper Perez, from IN, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Tuesday, 3/27. She did well casting CAL jigs with shad tails and jerk worms and DOA Deadly Combos, catching and releasing several nice trout. Dave Reinhart, from, MA, and Domenick Raschella, from VA, fished the Terra Ceia area with me on Wednesday. 3/28. Fishing shallow water with lures and flies usually isn’t easy but they fished hard and caught and released several snook, a couple of reds including an 8-pounder and trout on CAL jigs with shad tails. Fly angler Mark Nielson, from Seaford, DE, fished Sarasota Bay with me on a very windy day on Thursday, 3/29. Despite a stiff 15 to 20-mph wind, he hung in there and caught and released a nice trout on a Clouser fly. It’s not often that I have a client from Delaware, much less my hometown, where Mark and I were high school classmates. Fly anglers also had some action catching and releasing trout to 19” on Ultra Hair Clouser flies in Sarasota Bay with me during the week of 4/2. Fishing shallow water for big trout, snook and reds is usually challenging although they should be a good option now. There should also be good action with trout, blues, Spanish mackerel, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Fishing dock lights in the ICW at night is always a good option for snook and more. Our natural resources are under constant pressure, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!

Mike Badarack (totch) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: The sight fishing has been excellent for the last 2 weeks, redfish have been tailing during the warmest parts of the day. Those who can make an accurate cast are reaping the benefits. Most of the fish are in knee deep water or less and are averaging 22-30 inches. I'm seeing about 50 fish each day and catching 2-5 on fly....the fish are very spooky but if they dont see you they are aggressive in the biting department. Also, just off the flat in about 4 feet of water the ladyfish and bluefish are loaded. (12/26/10)
