—–Last Wednesday, on April 24th, we took the O’Brian family on our 3 hour trip to Egmont Key. We went to the “secret” sandbar and found sand dollars, a sticky starfish, a black seahorse and plenty of conch shells. We even saw some manatees on our way home to Keyes Marina.

—–Well, it’s Friday and our judging crew has determined that this week’s CANAL MONSTER SNATCH award will recognize the ongoing and often futile attempts of Johnny Mattay to tame the beasts in our favorite canal!
—–Johnny has completed many a canal slam, bringing a single-day combination of catfish, pinfish, toadfish and gut-snagged mullet to his delighted family’s table after his shift behind the counter at Island Discount Tackle.
—–Lately, he’s been working his fishing wizardry on the elusive canal snook and you can see the results for yourselves! We will certainly be honoring this fine young man and his occasionally victorious canal campaigns with a delicious beer (or two) out by the shrimp tank this evening and we may have a spare cold one if you’re in the neighborhood!!

—–Last week, the Greenough family took our sightseeing boat tour around Anna Maria Island and Jewfish Key. We saw a bunch of dolphins and manatees and went snorkeling on my secret sandbar. It was the girls’ first time snorkeling. As we snorkeled over the grassflats, they found sand dollars, coral and shells. They had an awesome time. We also had a good time watching lots of dolphins in Palma Sola Bay.

—–Even though we fought the wind this week, we had very good luck fishing for snook, redfish, trout and sharks.
—–On Monday, March 22nd, we caught and released snook up to 33 inches. There were quite a few over 28 inches and we also caught speckled trout up to 24 inches long.
—–While fishing near Egmont Key this week, we caught and released some beautiful gag grouper.
—–On Friday night, we tried some night time fly fishing. Casting small minnow flies around docks in Sarasota Bay and along Longboat Key, my customers hooked up on some great snook and redfish.
