Craig Henke and Jerry Ciandella, both from Charleston, SC, had good action with catch and release snook before dawn on flies and trout on Sarasota Bay flats after daylight on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails while fishing with Capt. Rick Grassett.

Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota Fishing Report for 10/9/2021
Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had good action catching and releasing trout, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and snook in Sarasota Bay and the ICW on flies and DOA Lures on several trips recently. 
Dave and Shara King, from Dillon, MT, fished a couple of trips with me and had good action catching and releasing trout, Spanish mackerel , tripletail and snook in Sarasota Bay on flies and CAL jigs with shad tails. They also fished dock lights in the ICW with me on another trip and had good action catching and releasing numerous snook on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly and DOA Tiny TerrorEyz.
Look for reds, snook and large trout in shallow water.  Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, Spanish mackerel, jacks, blues and more. Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, toxic spills, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!
Tight Lines,Capt. Rick Grassett
