From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

What a week of rainy weather! We dodged rain each day on the water and got cut short a few days when the storms rolled in early. It's been a wet week on the Treasure Coast! It's the rainy season, so expect afternoon thunderstorms to brew up each afternoon this time of year.

We are still finding a variety of fish to enjoy on the river this week. Snapper have been the best bite while fishing on the channel edges, grass flats, docks and bridges of the river. There have been some nice size mangrove snapper in the mix for those looking for a great dinner fare. They are willing to hit CAL shad tails or live shrimp most days. Our trout bite has been decent most days on the grass flats. 
 With the warmer water, fish the shallow flats early with top water lures and move to the edges of the grass flats as the sun rises in three to five feet of water when looking for trout. DOA shrimp or CAL shad tails work great when trout fishing. Watch for the glass minnow schools out on the flats. They are super this time of year to help locate trout. Our redfish have been hanging under the mangroves and you have a chance at catching one any time of the day in those areas. There are lots of jacks around the river to bend your rods on when you find them. It's been a wet, but exciting week on the water!
