Sugar trout time.
Sugar trout, sometimes called silver perch, are seldom over seven or eight inches long, but make up for that by being feisty, especially tasty and plentiful--when they show up. Dennis Hart of Hart's Landing recalls years when everyone bundled up, fished off a bridge somewhere in town and went home with a bucket full of the little critters that always reminded those of us from the Great Lakes area of big beautiful smelt.
This is the month to keep your ears open for news of sugar trout passing through. And if you hear, join the community of bridge, seawall and wading anglers--those "small" folks who don't have the funds or perhaps just the inclination to own boats--for this tasty annual Sarasota tradition.
