I am an avid fisherman here in Michigan. I will be moving to Sarasota, FL in mid august and am looking for some advice. I have successfully fished bass, trout, salmon, panfish, pike, and most other northern species, however I am nearly clueless about ocean fishing.
I am looking for places in or near Sarasota to fish from shores/piers or wading to fish the surf. Any tactics, specific baits, or locations would be extremely helpful. I understand everyone has their honey-holes and secret spots, but I am asking angler to angler, for some tricks of the trade to help me get started on my new adventure. I would be more than willing to offer any of my tactics from the north for any of you who are crazy enough to travel to the cold, fairly unpredictable portion of the country.
Thanks and tight lines -
