Last few months - Wading Sarasota Bay
Has been nothing short of crap. I moved here 6 years ago, and every summer has been nothing short of amazing at a few spots in the bay. If I walked out at sunset with 2 small snook, it was not even worth reporting. 15+ fish nights were common. The last 8 or so trips has yielded 2 decent reds and a handful of snook. Some trips going skunked. Last trip plenty of bait.... very few hits. I know the RT was bad last fall/winter.... I am thinking that has to be the reason!!!!! 2 Trips ago... we were in so many mullet, when a bird flew overhead you would see blowouts the size of school buses. Last trip - tons of white bait and small pins. Its not the "time of year" for it to be slow... Going through reports/pics... I was getting 30" snook all July and August in years past... What in the!??!?!!?!?
