Anna Maria Island mid to late March

I will be vacationing in Anna Maria Island March 16-23. What should I expect to catch? Any pointers to get me on some fish? I’ve always wanted to catch some reds and blacktips but no clue if this is even the right season for them.

    You should be able to catch some reds, trout, snook in Sarasota bay and im sure Palma Sola Bay (although i've never fish it)
    As for Blacktips at that time of year, possibly from the beach if the water temps are up. Somebody with more experience can probably tell you more.

    I will probably rent a kayak while I’m there so hopefully I’ll be able to get into some better spots too. Should I be focusing on canals, docks or flats?

    You should be able to pick up fish all over. Docks at night for snook should be good. Flats during the day. Just make sure to check the tides before heading out.
