Redfish Sarasota

Post by HeritageRed14SRQ » Fri Jun 17, 2016 5:56 pm

Anyone have a spot they reccomend in Sarasota for redfish either from kayak or land. I see tons of posts and YouTube videos with folks catching amazing redfish in Sarasota and I would like to learn how to enjoy some redfish success.

Good luck with anybody telling you about specific spots. Instead, look for the popular kayak launches and go out and fish fish fish. The only way to learn is keep fishing the same area in different conditions, times of day, tides, etc. Your other option is hire a guide for a day and learn some techniques, ask questions, and just learn what they do and how they go about finding fish and make decisions. For example, how long do they stay in one place before they move to another spot? These are key things to learn and apply. Good luck!

The red fish basics. Mangrove points at high tide. Mullet schools attract reds throw bait into the middle of the school lures along the edges. when the moon is over 50% fishing is slow in the morning. (the most comfortable time for kayakers). Explore your favorite fishing area until you know the holes and channels the fish are there you have to find them.
