Capt. Rick Grassett's Southwest Florida Fishing Forecast for October 2010 (10/03/2010)
[Saltwater Fishing] This is one of my favorite months to fish. Both flats and the coastal gulf will be alive with action. Trout, reds, pompano, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and more in Sarasota Bay and snook around docks and bridges in the ICW and close to passes should be plentiful in October. In the coastal gulf, little tunny, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and tarpon should also be good options.

[Flats Fishing] Snook season closes this month, however catch and release fishing can be good if it isn't too cold. Trout season remains closed in December in the south region but you might find them in potholes or around creek mouths. Reds should feed on shallow flats on sunny afternoons this month.
Capt. Rick Grassett’s Sarasota, FL Fishing Forecast for November 2009 (11/06/2009)
[Saltwater Fishing] There will be a lot of action this month on shallow and deep grass flats and in the coastal gulf. Snook will make their way towards backcountry areas, staging along sandbars as they go. Reds and trout will spend more time feeding on shallow flats as water temperatures cool. In the coastal gulf, Spanish and king mackerel, little tunny and cobia will follow bait schools south as the gulf water also cools.

[Flats Fishing] Snook will be staging on the flats as they make their move toward the backcountry, reds will scatter on the flats following schooling in September and October and “gator” trout will venture into skinny water to feed. In the coastal gulf, look for Spanish mackerel, bluefish, little tunny, cobia and more.
