Captain Jim's Siesta Key Fishing Report

Captain Jim's Siesta Key Area Fishing Report - Updated July 2nd, 2017!

Fishing really took off this week as the weather settled and the water cleared up! All of the grass flats that I fished in 6' to 8' of water held fish for clients on charters out of the Minorga on the Key Village Condos on Siesta Key. Marker #5, Middlegrounds, Bishop's Pt. and Buttonwood were all productive and they seemed to be the hordes of small baitfish that were over the flats. Speckled trout, pompano, bluefish, flounder, mangrove snapper, gag grouper, jack crevelle and loads of ladyfish were landed. Bass Assassin Sea Shad baits did very well, especially later in the week when there was a lot of fishing breaking on the surface. Live bait, both shrimp and threadfins, also produced a lot of fish. I did cast net bait this week and do some chumming, and though the bait was still on the small side, it was still very effective.
