BRADENTON – It's not the best time to fish; Weather Underground is predicting advisory level winds with gusts up to gale force over the offshore waters through Thursday. Two license-free fishing days will take place over the holidays. Florida manatees are beginning their annual migration to warmer waters, which is their instinctual response to winter’s approach and surviving the cold. Capt. Rick Grassett says that fishing deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay for trout, blues, Spanish mackerel and jacks or reds and snook in skinny water should be a good option next week.
