From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

Lots of sunshine and warm weather this week around the Treasure Coast had boaters and anglers on the water this week.  Summer has taken over and you can look for more warm days and chances of afternoon thunderstorms each day.  Getting out early can keep you out of the heat of the day and increase your fishing opportunities as well.  Have fun this summer and enjoy the fishing!

We have found our sea trout on the grass flats in two to four feet of water using DOA shrimp, top water lures or live baits.  Still getting some big trout up to 26" this past week, so the gators are still around.  Redfish were a little slower for us this week.  I didn't get up on the shallow flats much with the low tides, but will be back out this week for them.  We have been fishing docks quite a bit this week with some very nice results.  Snook anglers are still getting a good bite at the mouth of the jetties on live baits.  You can find plenty of snapper around the river.  Docks, channel edges and bridges have accounted for lots of mangroves this month.  The mackerel, jacks and bonito have begun showing up around the inlet this week.  It should go crazy with them as the glass minnows show up in force.  It's lots of fun and action when they are in a feeding frenzy!

The beach should be active with jacks, snook and bluefish this month along with the usual whiting.  Jacks and
 bluefish have been feeding around the mouth of the Fort Pierce Inlet.
