    Pine Island RED TIDE

    Planning to come over and take my son fishing in Pine Island sound, have heard that the Red Tide is bad but have not found anything on the forum. He is really looking forward to this trip. Anyone with any advice or status of the red tide. Thanks

    Didn't see any sign of it in the southern part, boca grande area, on Saturday.

    I didn't see any sign of it, but I collect water samples for FWC, and just came back with positive results of K. brevis (red tide) off of Cayo Costa. But when I was out there did not see or smell any sign of it. Also did well on sheepshead and flounder on near shore numbers.

    Generally there is always some amount of K. brevis in the water, it kills fish and creates the smell when it is blooming. Haven't seen much up North in Sarasota.
