From Capt. Charlie @Fishing Center-Fort Pierce

It was a mixed week around the area with both weather and fishing.  We had great success early in the week, but the last front that moved in had slowed the fishing down for a day or two.  This week should provide us with super weather and fishing around the Treasure Coast.  The winds are just about gone now, so get out fishing soon.The trout bite should pick this week, the fish have so much bait around the river right now, they will be feeding heavily.  Try some lures to match the bait.  DOA Baitbusters, BFL lures and CAL jerk baits are all good lures for this time of year.  Try the Baitbuster as a top water lure while fishing the mullet schools around the flats.  A CAL jerk bait on a weedless hook will also work well as a top water presentation.  Fish around the bait schools for best results.Redfish have been hanging around the shallow flats most of the day.  Fish the edges on the lower ends of the tide and switch to the sand holes as the tide moves in on the grass flats.  CAL jerk baits, live baits and DOA shrimp are great lures on the flats.  You can also use live or cut baits as well.Now that the winds are settling down again, we will be fishing lots of docks for snook, jacks, redfish and trout.  Fishing lures up tide around the docks will allow the lures to stay under the docks and improve your chances at a hookup.  Lot of jacks are around the river chasing the bait schools.  You can also find quite a few bluefish around the flats as well.  It's a great time of year to fish!
