Bradenton, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Manatee River, Sarasota bay, Terra Ceia bay

The fishing inshore and nearshore has been awesome and providing many different options for anglers on our fishing charters in the Bradenton and Sarasota area. Bait has been plentiful pretty much everywhere you look whether it be on the flats or off the beach.

We have been fishing inshore most of the time the past couple weeks catching lots of snook, trout, and some redfish here and there. The bluefish have been plentiful in Sarasota bay as well as the ladyfish. On most of the flats that are holding bait the seatrout have not been far with nice 15-20 inch fish being caught. Redfish and large seatrout are mixed in with the mullet schools on the shallow flats. Snook continue to transition into their wintertime haunts and we have been catching them along mangrove shorlines in and just outside the river.

Fishing will be really good through the end of the year and we are booking for the holidays so call 813-220-8725 to book your private fishing charter and get in on the rod bending action!
