Hi Rick,
Thanks for the response and information about fishing in the Sarasota area. I don't think I had been to Sanibel when I saw you. We just started going there 3 years ago. I really like it because I can fish on the beach and my wife enjoys the "civilized" aspects as compared with most other fishing spots. When conditions are good, the beach snook fishing is a lot of fun. When the conditions are poor, it is better to just enjoy the civilized aspects.
