From Capt. Joe Ward in Ft. Pierce

INSHORE - Not much of a change over this past week other than a few tripletail on the channel markers to the south of the South Bridge.  Try using a live shrimp and a trol-rite jig.  The trout fishing has stayed about the same with most of the bigger fish being caught on a live pigfish.  A live shrimp fished under a popping cork and soft plastic baits will also work.  Just remember that the best bite has been from first light until about 8am and then again from about 6:30pm until dark.  I am still getting a few reports about the redfish bite around the docks along both North and South Indian River Drive.  Try a live shrimp if you can find a good sized one or a gold spoon.  The snapper action has been a hit or miss thing along the channel edges.  It is just a matter of catching the tide just right.  A small live shrimp will work just fine for the snapper.  The catch and release snook action has been good in the Ft. Pierce Inlet when fishing a live bait on the bottom.  The bite has been the best on the out going tide.
