Recreational red snapper season ended July 15. A subtropical ridge will build across Florida and the eastern Gulf of Mexico through the week. Winds and seas will generally remain below headline criteria away from any thunderstorms. Tarpon fishing in the coastal gulf should be good next week depending on conditions. Beat the heat by catch and release snook fishing before daylight in the ICW and then look for reds and big trout in shallow water early in the day. Fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay for trout, blues, Spanish mackerel and more should also be a good option.
