Mother Nature provided us with wonderful weather this week and it looks like it will continue for a while. I think that the winds have finally lost their grip and summer has arrived on the Treasure Coast.
We had some very good days out on the water this week fishing for redfish, trout and snook. Battling with some nice sized reds up to 29", trout fishing with a fat 26" and snook at the docks. We had a lot of fun out there on the the Indian River. Trout have been a staple this month. Most flats have held good numbers of trout and lots of them have been good sized fish. CAL jerk baits, DOA shrimp and live shrimp have all caught good numbers of fish for us lately. Redfish have been in shallow water. Most were caught in two feet on low tide and were just sitting on the flats. CAL jerk baits, DOA shrimp and live shrimp have continued to work well for our redfish bite. We have found snook hanging under many of the docks to the south of Fort Pierce. It's always a challenge to hook one and get it out from under the docks and we have had some exciting fun this past week on the docks.
Mackerel, jacks and bluefish have been around the inlet and jetties. Sheepshead and snapper have been the main focus on the docks and bridges of the river. The surf has provided anglers with pompano, whiting and bluefish this week. It's been a great week out there!
