Overlook Park Sarasota,Florida 10/24

I had the day off from work and decided to go fishing by under the bridge between Lido Key and Longboat Key. Some people had been recommending the spot and since I had the day why not try it out. My first cast into the water landed me a Jack. After that i had a couple bits but I wasn't landing anything. I decided to switch from live bait to so Gulp Natural color shrimp on a 1/4oz Jig and I quickly landed 2 flounders. Although it wasn't my catch I wanted to mention that the guy next to me did land a 21" Gag from the rocks directly underneath.

    There are a lot of keeper gags in new pass under the bridge, they're just tough as hell to get out. I've never fished there but have walked under the bridge on that boardwalk plenty of times. I had no idea it was called overlook park. I just know it's the north side of new pass. Those flounder should make a good sandwich
