From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

We enjoyed another fun filled week on the Treasure Coast this week.  The summer weather has let us enjoy some beautiful mornings and rainy afternoons in the area.  Expect lots of the same weather patterns in the weeks ahead.  Some of those storms can become pretty nasty, so watch things on the water when you are out there.  The water clarity has been great to the south of Fort Pierce, but not so good to the north as Taylor Creek water continues to be pushed that direction with the tides.  The Saint Lucie River has it's own ugly issues as dirty water continues to be released into it.
Trout fishing slowed down this week with the full moon going on. Look for trout in two to four feet of water on the grass flats.  DOA shrimp works great!  The bite should pick up now that the full moon effects are about over.  Snook have been around the jetties, sea walls and mangroves on the river.  We have caught our snook on DOA shrimp and CAL jerk baits.  The redfish bite should pick back up soon.  They are starting to school up so keep a look out for them.  It should be a good summer bite this year.  You can still find snapper around docks, bridges and channel edges.  Mackerel and jacks are slowly filling up the turning basin as the glass minnows begin to flood into the river.  We have found some nice size bluefish south of the bridges hitting DOA shrimp or Mirrolures.  Have fun and get out fishing soon!
