You will be fishing with the top of the line in fishing platform.
My 23' center console Panga Marquesas is one of the most fishable bay and coastal guide boats in the Sarasota area that can fish all of the skinny water and back water on Sarasota bay plus the coastal offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico. You can mix your fishing up with a little inshore and offshore in the same trip.
Where Will We Fish:
Most of the time I will pick you up at the City Island Boat Ramp near Mote Marine and New Pass Bait Shop.
New Pass is a short pass that connects the Gulf of Mexico with Big Sarasota Bay. With only a very short ride, we can be fishing in the Gulf or the Bay. We could also have runs of different fish in the pass it self.
There are large grass-flats, artificial reefs, channels, and bridges on the bay and plenty of docks to fish. On the gulf side, we have plenty of artificial reefs and some good bottom within 3 miles of New Pass.
We also fish along the beach or follow large schools of bait fish. Sarasota bay has three inlets to the Gulf: Big Pass and New Pass on the south end and Longboat Pass on the far north end. This gives the bay a good flow of water in and out and good food sources for Bay and Gulf fish.
Now this does not mean that we will catch fish 24/7/365 days a year, it just means that it is a good place to be when the fish start to chew. Wind speed and direction, tides, cold fronts and the weather in general, fish migrations, natural food in the water, bait-fish, shrimp, crabs etc. are just some of the things that will dictate where, how, and what we will fish for.
We have a large variety of fish in this part of Florida and our options can change quickly. My motto is to get our rods bending first, and then we can pick the fish we want to fish for.
