From Capt. Charlie @Fishing Center-Fort Pierce

As summer sets in on the Treasure Coast, the winds are dying off and we can expect warm weather the rest of summer.  You can count on the chance for afternoon thunderstorms each day, so plan your adventures to take than into account.  The earlier you can get out on the water....the better!  Have fun the rest of the month and get in some good fishing time.  It's a great time of year.
Trout fishing remains good using DOA shrimp, CAL jerk baits or live pigfish.  Most flats continue to hold trout in two to five feet of water.  Look for bait schools for the best productivity on the flats.  Redfish are also feeding on the flats or under the docks.   Had the winds cooperated a little longer we would certainly fished the docks most of the morning.  Getting out before sunrise can give you an excellent opportunity this week to use top water lures.  We have entered that phase of summer weather where it will be flat calm most mornings.  It's always inspiring to watch that sun peek over the horizon.

Lots of sheephead and snapper around structure right now.  The mangrove snapper have been good table size lately.  Live shrimp is hard to beat for these fish.  The weather has calmed down this week, so plan a trip on the river soon!  Drink plenty of liquids out there.  Keeping hydrated is very important this time of year.
