From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierc

It was a busy week and the weather cooperated most days to keep us out of the rains. It was on the breezy side some days, but nice not to have the rain clouds chasing us around the river. Milder temperatures have arrived for a few days and it's been nice fishing conditions out there. We are in the transition from summer to fall weather. Expect milder temps and the water to cool down some this month. The fall mullet run continues around the Treasure Coast and lots of fish are out there looking for their next meal. October is a great fishing month!

Our trout have been in three to five feet of water on the grass flats. We had excellent success with DOA Bait Busters this week on trout and jacks on the flats. Continue to use the DOA shrimp as well when trout fishing. CAL grub tails found us lots of juvenile snook and redfish and some nice sea trout. Fish around the finger mullet schools and you should find fish lurking near them. Lots of snapper can be found just about anywhere you stop to fish on the river this month. Using the DOA Bait Buster as a top water lure is fantastic during the mullet run. It swims so realistic, that you can even find some finger mullet willing to follow it. Watch for some tarpon around the jetties and turning basin feeding on the mullet. October will prove to be very productive on the Treasure Coast!
