Only 5 days left until the start of the Seminar Season and the Annual Buy 2 bags - get one free Fishbites Sale. Billy Carr and Brett Burford from Fishbites will be onsite at Bass Pro Shops, 2250 Gatlin Blvd, Port St Lucie from 10 to 4. .This sale was a huge success last year and to be fair to everyone who wants to take advantage of this great promotion, there will be a limit of 10 free bags per individual. Buy 20 and go home with 30 or buy 2 and go home with 3 . Anyway you figure it its just a great deal on the best surf, river, inshore , or offshore bait in the country !!! My Late Fall Surf Fishing Seminar will kick off at 230 . I will be talking about the multitude of species that are currently being caught along our beaches with a special emphasis on the Pompano. Tackle, techniques, baits, locations - I am going to review a bunch of beach accesses on Hutchinson Island as there as been some major changes since last year as to where and when to fish a specific beach. Some other topics will be Distance Casting , reading the beach, natural bait preparation recipes, and sites where you can get up to date and accurate fishing reports from Ed Killer and the TC Palm Publications along with some great online subscription offers. Tony Rose and OnFoot Angler is another great land based forum that I will tell you how to access. I have updated and added a lot of information to the Seminar Handout . It should be a great day at Bass Pro on Saturday and I hope to see you there.
Inshore the mullet are around good with some nice trout and reds in the bait schools to the north with some small snook live bait and top water produced the best. The jetty fishing has been a little slow but the front coming down mid week.

Heres a late surf report from today. There was a great pompano bite today, up and down Hutchinson Island. I worked this morning but my phone was blowing up with reports of pompano being caught from Santa Lucea to Blue Heron. I made a late run to Middle Cove and had a great late afternoon bite. I caught over 30 pompano with 11 of them being keeper size . The life on the beach was fantastic as my catch list included lots of ladyfish, big blue runners, jacks, and even a bonefish. I know it sounds like a broken record but EZ Flea Fishbites was the top producing bait followed by the Chartreuse Crab bait. Live sandfleas were plentiful also. Saturday looks like the only day out of the next few when the weather may be an issue so get your gear ready and go bend a rod.
