From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

We have enjoyed some fantastic weather along the Treasure Coast this week.  After dodging rain storms for last week, it was nice to see the sun shining bright across the water.  Mild temperatures and light winds have made for some great fishing weather for anglers and the fish have cooperated for us this week.  Looks like this will continue for a while, so it's time to enjoy some fun, sun and fishing!
The bluefish and jacks invaded the river in numbers this week.   It makes it hard to trout fish when these hungry fish are in the area.  You can find jacks and bluefish from the inlets to just about anywhere on the river.  There are lots of snapper around the river right now.  Some of them have been nice sized fish.  It's that time of year to enjoy the top water fishing.  Try the new Airhead from DOA as a top water or slow sinking lure.   Bridges and docks continue to hold some sheepshead and snapper.  Look for whiting, bluefish and jacks in the surf.  It has been tough on the beach lately, but things should calm down soon.

Take plenty of fluids with you this time of year.  When the winds are light, it can get warm fast on the water.  Use lots of sunscreen as well.  Calmer water can really reflect that sun and give you a nasty burn if you aren't ready for it.  May is one of my favorite months.  Have fun on the water this month and enjoy the fishing!
