From Capt Joe Ward @ Bait Shack - FT Pierce

The inshore fishing has been good on the full tide when the water is clearest - not the brown you see on the out going tide. Plenty of snapper along the channel edges as well as around the local bridges and in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. Your best bet will be a small live shrimp or a piece of cut bait. There has been a good black drum bite in just about the same place as the snapper. The trout and redfish have been a little on the slow side but, try places like Bear Point or Harbor Branch. A live shrimp fished under a popping cork will get the job done. Look for the clear water in 2 to 4 feet. The snook action remains steady on the first of the out going tide in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. Use a live bait live a finger mullet or a shrimp and fish it on the bottom. The Spanish mackerel and jacks are following the bait school into the Ft. Pierce Inlet on the incoming tide. Just look for the birds.
