Hello all...

I will be heading down to Manasota Beach for the holidays to visit family. Their place is right on Manasota Beach - step outside and you're on the beach.

What kind of fish are running in the later parts of December? Should I bother bringing down my 10ft St Croix surf rod? Live bait? Jigs?

It also seems as though I have the Gulf option and then Lemon Bay.

Opinions and suggestions for the surf and bay areas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Stinky, I'll be staying on manasota key as well the week after Christmas and intend to fish as usual there. I have 3 charters planned there and I try to fish the surf as well as the piers also. I've not fished the bay much though. The 10 footer will work for way out, bit I also fish the troughs midway out and just beyond the 1st breaker with sandfleas. cutbait works and bout everything likes shrimp. and could always cast a jig or lure. enjoy and good luck.
