Fishing continued to be productive again this week. Lots of action for anglers on the Treasure Coast. The weather has been pretty nice lately as we transition into the dry season. Less rain in the forecast and milder temperatures ahead. Expect much the same for the near future and have some fun out fishing soon!
DOA shrimp continues to be our best artificial lure. The trout and snook have loved them. The 382 Holographic Glitter has been a super color on the flats this week. The trout have been on the grass flats in two to four feet of water along with lots of juvenile snook. Our redfish have been on the same flats and under the mangroves. Ladyfish and jacks are everywhere and willing to bend a rod if you enjoy them. Kids love it!
Fall is always a great time to enjoy the fishing along the Treasure Coast. Exciting action can be found on any given day on the water. The fish are feeding in preparation for winter. Top water lures are an exciting way to begin a morning and provide some exploding action. Winter will be here soon and that means cooler temperatures and windy days ahead. It's all fun though!

10-20-14 MONDAY: REDS, JACKS, A FEW SPANISH MACKEREL AND SNOOK
It's a beautiful fall morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and the water is calm. We had a gorgeous weekend and everybody is getting into the fall fishing mode. We received several updates and photos from folks who landed big Reds. Low light periods or nights have been best for Snook.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported that this morning a couple of slot Reds came over the rails and that the weekend brought in some large Jacks, big Reds and a few Spanish Mackerel.
Sebastian resident Justin Thompson sent in our first photo today. Justin was fishing the inlet using live mullet when he landed this oversized 32" Red. It was released unharmed right after the photo.
Our second photo features Josh Morrill with a slot Snook he landed.
