Captain Favorite's Weekend Fishing Forecast Jan. 31, 2013

Published Thursday, January 31, 2013 12:04 am

BRADENTON -- Our contributing Capt. Rick Grassett will help people learn to fly fish on the weekend of Feburary 9. Also coming up is the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta in St. Pete rom Feburary 15-17. Anglers are encouraged to look for trout, Spanish mackerel, blues, pompano and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. Also look for reds around docks, in potholes and on the edges of bars when the tide is low or on shallow flats on sunny afternoons when the tide is high. Catch and release snook fishing in the ICW at night should also be a good option.
