BRADENTON -- There are tons of fishing related events on the horizon, including the Terra Ceia Mullet festival which features the controversial "mullet toss." That will take place this Saturday, Nov. 10. The Fort Myers Boat Show is also this weekend; admission is $9. Also this weekend is the Taste of the Islands Festival in Sanibel. Then next weekend take the kids on a road trip to Charlotte Harbor for the free Mom and Tot aquatic adventures, or the sandsculpting festival in Fort Myers. Fishing for false albacore, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and more in the coastal gulf should resume when conditions stabilize. Shallow water fishing for reds, trout and snook should also continue to improve as it gets cooler.
