Captain Terry Simmons: Guide at CB’s Saltwater Outfitters

Coastal Fishing Adventures

(941) 923-7799

This week, fishing aboard the “Coastal Fishing Adventures” with Captain Terry Simmons, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key.
It’s been a little windy most of the week, but early in the week I chartered “Dave Lovell” and although we had to move around a lot we caught several small trout, a few bluefish, jack crevelle, and a small cobia. We were using gold flake CAL lures with 3/8 ounce jig heads over the deep grass flats.

Mid-week I chartered the “Luke Bourns” group. Their young boys had a blast learning how to cast for the first time and were rewarded with catching their first saltwater fish, speckled sea trout and jack crevelle. We used chartreuse DOA cal baits with 1/4oz jig heads and live shrimp. It started out to be a trip for the young boys but ended up as a contest between the boys and their dads. Good job dads.
