April is a great time for fishing in Sarasota, with plenty of opportunities to catch a variety of species. The weather is mild, and the water is warming up, making it an ideal time to get out on the water. Here's what you can expect when fishing in Sarasota in April. Inshore fishing in Sarasota is great in April, with plenty of opportunities to catch snook, redfish, and trout. These species are beginning to move out of their winter patterns and are becoming more active in the shallow flats and backwaters. Live bait, such as shrimp or pinfish, is the best option for targeting these species. Here are some tips for fishing in Sarasota in April: Pay attention to the tides: The tide plays a big role in fishing success. Look for moving water around structure, such as mangroves or oyster bars. Use live bait: Live bait is the best option for targeting inshore species, such as snook and redfish. Shrimp or pinfish are great options. Keep an eye out for birds: Birds can lead you to schools of baitfish, which in turn can attract larger predatory fish.
