    01/28/2012 - SRQ Inshore Report

    Fished yesterday with my son and a buddy of mine. We left the dock around 8:00 AM with a plan to run north into Sarasota bay. The first stop was in the ICW just north of the Stickney Point Bridge where what we thought at first were small Jacks hitting fry bait. It actually turned out to be Trout. Caught our first keeper fish (a 18" Trout) on the first cast of the day. Moving northward we hit the east side of Sarasota Bay and picked caught and released a bunch of small Trout (13" to 15"). Most of these came on a Mission Fishin 1/8 oz. jig head and a MirrOlure Lil John plastic. Then the first 15" Pompano entered the cooler after eating a Cotee paddle tail on a small jig head. We continued northward searching for some larger fish. Got into some larger trout which were holding close to several schools of Mullet. The 18" to 22" Trout loved the Sebile and we found them in about 2 feet of water. Decided to move across the bay and found a large amount of Trout holding in about 3 feet of water. Had several double and triple hook-ups and also picked up another 15" Pompano. These fish came on a variety of soft plastics including the Li John, DOA Shad tails and Cotee's. Our final stop was just north of Big Pass where we found several more Pompano but a couple were just under-sized. Back at the dock before 3:00 PM. All in all caught 30+ Trout (20+ keepers) plus the Pompano. We released a bunch of keeper fish which always feels good. Is this really winter????
