Fall fishing has been great so far in the Manasota Key area, even with a small bout with redtide. Locally, the bays that are closest to the passes and the beach, seem to be taking a little more time to come back. But, the backcountry of Placida Sound has been producing good catch numbers, for all the marquee inshore species. Schools of redfish can be found on almost any tides. Snook fishing has been good when the water is moving. And, we are finding random trout, Jacks, and mangrove snapper along the way. It's a fun time to go fishing in South West Florida!
