August 2019 Venice Jetty Fishing Forecast
The fishing has been red hot. Snook, red fish, snapper and some pompano being caught this month. A rare permit snagged also. We been using a Rapala twitchin mullet for snook and thats been working pretty good. Shrimp and white bait has been working too.
Tarpon have been rolling between the jetties and in the bays. Mackeral have been hitting out there too.
To catch the pompano get yourself a silly willy and a teaser (pink and white jig with a green/yellow teaser work goood), tie them in a loop knot and cast it out as far as possible. Wait for it to hit bottom, count to 5 then start working it in.
Hit the docks at night this Month for some good snook fishing. This is the time of year for some good snook fishing. According to FWC trout snook and redfish are catch and release only until May of 2020.
You can always find fish around here in the rivers and offshore. FWC makes snook, redfish temporarily catch-and-release only in areas affected by red tide. Guided kayak fishing available at Jetty rentals at the North Jetty on the south end of Casey Key. 941-525-0117.
