Beach fishing has been hit or miss. Anglers fishing the Ft. Pierce Jetty are still finding a few pompano throwing jigs or using clams. Whiting and Croaker have been in the trough, pieces of shrimp will fill up a 5 gallon bucket for dinner. Bluefish and mackerel are on the move, some being reported, but most seem to have made a push to the north. Silver spoon will find them if they are there. Hopefully start looking for some big jacks to make a push on the beach soon. Big top water plugs will have you running up the beach chasing these 15 – 50lb beasts, and they fight hard.
Fishing in the river has continued to be good, shifting winds have made both sides of the river fishable, and unfishable. Had a nice Snook caught at Walton road by one of our wading anglers, fish measured 38’’ and was released. Caught it on a live pinfish under a dock. Lots of redfish and trout eating top waters, mirrodines, and DOA shrimp. Little mud creek, middle cove, and bear point on the east side of the river, all great locations. Also had a 61lb black drum caught here at the Jensen Causeway on a live shrimp yesterday.
So South Florida fishing fans get out the sunscreen and flip flops because summers on its way, and the fishing will only get better….
