Bradenton Beach red tide

Hi Everyone,

A bunch of friends and I rented a house on Bradenton Beach this upcoming weekend. We are staying about a mile north of the Cortez bridge.  Many are coming from out of state but 2 of us are from here.  I live in St Pete and my buddy lives in Ft Meyers.  We are wondering if it's worth bringing our boats.  I read the FWC reports but they are mainly focused on the beaches.  Is the intracoastal ok?  Is the fishing ok?  It's hard to tell since we've had red tide at the mouth of Tampa bay for a while now but I always fish the middle bay and haven't experienced any red tide all summer and fall.
