From Capt. Charlie @Fishing Center-Fort Pierce

The week was the usual windy March weather that we expect to see.  We were rewarded most of the week with a great trout and sheephead bite out on the river.  By weekend, the water had cooled down just enough to slow the trout bite,but the redfish were out there feeding.  We did happen on one nice school of reds that we couldn't get close enough to cast.

Our best areas for trout have been Bear Point and Queen's Cove in two to four feet of water using either live bait or DOA CAL jerk baits. Our redfish also came by using the CAL 4" jerk baits.  Docks are holding plenty of hungry sheephead, bluefish and jacks.  We have kept busy reeling in fish when we could get around just about any of the docks this week.
It was a challenging week for sure to fish around the steady winds of the month.  It won't be long until summer has arrived and things will calm down again.  There are plenty areas to fish that are out of the driving winds and the fish continue to bite as long as the water temperatures have warmed up.  Have fun and get out fishing!

As always, remember, fishing is not just another's an

Good Fishing and Be Safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
