It’s Sheepshead time. The big spawners come closer to shore from January-March in SW Florida. Best baits are live shrimp, fiddler crabs, and sand fleas. Use a very sharp bait hook with a sliding sinker down to the hook or use a Carolina rig.

Where to catch them: around pier & bridge pilings, near rocks at the beach and inshore reefs, 2-3 miles out.

In the Boca Grande area, you can catch them surf fishing.

If you want to target Sea Trout from a kayak let me know. I offer 4-hour kayak fishing trips, I include the fishing kayak, fishing gear, live bait, and instruction on fishing from a kayak.
