Ethan Vaughan and his uncle Britt, of Plant City, joined me for a half day of fishing in northern Sarasota Bay on Wednesday. The plan was to sight fish reds and snook with live shrimp. That plan was nixed at the bait shop...no live shrimp! So we changed gears and worked Aqua Dream green spoons on the falling tide. We got into some decent reds and small trout.
I also took a day to work some snook on fly in the surf. Hooked up with a big girl that would have easily pushed 36" but the hook pulled. I may have made a slight scene on the beach afterwards. But I did manage four snook in the lower to mid 20" range on the CR Glow Fly.
