We had a cold winter to deal with and we had an oil spill in the
spring, things just didn't look very good. The fishing was as
good as I've seen it in 20 years. There were lots big Redfish in
the Spring and the Fall. The Mackerel run started and the fish
just kept on coming. The Trout spawn started in May and went all
the way to the end of June. The phone kept ringing and the
people kept coming. When September came it never slow down.
It was one of the best years the Sarasota area has seen in a long
time. Book your trips early for the coming year so you get to date
you're looking for.
