BRADENTON -- The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is this weekend along with the Fall Fly Fishing Challenge and the opening of Marine Quest in St. Petersburg. There are no reports of red tide off Sarasota beaches from Venice north at this time. Fishing for false albacore, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and more in the coastal gulf should continue to get better as the water cools and baitfish schools become more concentrated. Shallow water fishing for reds, trout and snook should also continue to improve as it gets cooler.
Breezy east to northeast winds will persist through the next several days as the pressure gradient remains tight between high pressure to the north and Tropical Storm Sandy drifting north from the Caribbean into the Bahamas. For the waters from Tarpon Springs southward...winds will increase to Small Craft Advisory criteria starting this evening.
Northeast winds 15 to 20 knots. Bay and inland waters choppy. Isolated showers. Thursday night will bring north winds 10 to 15 knots increasing to around 20 knots after midnight. Bay and inland waters choppy.
