From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

 The water clarity has been very good in spite of all the winds and rain.  June will provide anglers with some fantastic weather and excellent fishing action. 
Trout have been in three to five feet of water for us this week.  DOA shrimp or live bait work great on the trout.  Don't forget to try the new DOA Airhead as either a top water or slow sinking bait on the flats.  Trout seem to love them!  
Most of our redfish have been around the docks recently.  It's been harder to find a day to enjoy the docks with all the recent winds, but that has slowed down and this week should allow anglers to enjoy the west side of the river. Keep on the lookout for schools of redfish in June.  It's that time of year for them to gather up and move around the flats of the river.  There have been some good sized jacks and bluefish patrolling the docks lately and we have chased our share of them.   Snook season is over and fewer anglers will be targeting them around the area.  There is still good opportunities for catch and release throughout the summer around the jetties, bridges and docks of the river.

You can find plenty of snapper around the area right now.  Many keeper sized mangroves are just about everywhere in the river this time of year.   You will find plenty of anglers fishing the channel edges, docks and bridges this month for snapper.  Most will be using live or dead shrimp for the bait of choice.  Bridges will also hold some sheepshead for those anglers.  The surf will provide whiting, jacks and some bluefish.  June is a wonderful month to fish the Treasure Coast!
