From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

Summertime has arrived on the Treasure Coast! Lots of blue skies and chances of afternoon rain is the norm this time of year. Mornings has been the best weather for us lately and the winds have calmed down quite a bit on the water. Water temperatures have warmed up into the mid to upper 70's. June promises to be a super month to enjoy the fishing in the area.The mangroves have been very productive for us this past week. Both redfish and trout have been hanging around under the shadow lines. Work a live bait or DOA shrimp around the mangroves for a chance at a slot redfish this time of year. 

Our trout have been hanging in three to five feet of water on the grass flats. Try DOA shrimp, CAL jerk baits or live bait on the flats. Beware of the many bluefish that have been around lately. They fight hard, but you can expect some bite offs in the process. Expect lots of jacks to be around the areas this time of year. The inlet has had some mackerel, jacks and ladyfish cruising around the glass minnows. 

It's been warm out there when the winds die down. Keep plenty of water or Gatorade on the boat along with sunscreen. Keeping hydrated is important throughout the summer months. Sunstroke and sunburn isn't a fun thing to deal with so be prepared ahead of time. Have a fun June on the water!
