From Capt. Charlie @Fishing Center-Fort Pierce

As the rainy season settles in on the Treasure Coast, you can expect each day to provide an opportunity of rain and thunderstorms.  Luckily, we managed to skirt all the weather this week to find some great fishing action along the Indian River.  Morning will generally be calm and the weather systems will build in the early afternoons.  Getting out early can give you lots of opportunities to get in some good fishing time.
I had the privilege to attend the DOA Outdoor Writers Event again this year.    We found the trout eager to bite on the DOA shrimp in various colors.  The lighter colors worked best for us.  
The rest of the week also provided us with lots of trout action on the grass flats.  Using a combination of DOA shrimp and live bait, we caught lots of trout this week.  
Most of the grass flats are holding good numbers of trout.  We fished the majority of the week south of Fort Pierce to the power lines.  The water that direction has remained remarkably clear with all the recent rains.  Up to the north has been a little more on the murkier side, but we found trout biting as well.  Get some fishing in soon!
