Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota Fishing Report for 1/22/2022
Anglers fishing with me, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, had some action catching and releasing reds, snook and trout on DOA Lures in Charlotte Harbor recently. Keith McClintock and Hal D’Orazio, from Lake Forest, IL fished backcountry areas of Gasparilla Sound and had some action catching and releasing several reds, snook and trout on CAL jigs with shad tails. 
Look for reds, snook and larger trout in shallow water. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay is a usually a good choice for action with a variety of species including trout, jacks, blues and more. Snook at night around bridges and dock lights is also a good option depending on conditions. If you have an interest in fly fishing, CB’s Saltwater Outfitters has added another Orvis-Endorsed fly fishing school on Feb 5. Contact them at (941) 349-4400 to sign up.
Our natural resources are under constant pressure from red tides fueled by industrial, agricultural and residential runoff, toxic spills and discharges, freezes, increasing fishing pressure and habitat loss and degradation, please limit your kill, don’t kill your limit!
