From Capt Joe Ward @ Bait Shack - FT Pierce

 The inshore fishing has been good even with all the fresh water runoff. There has been a lot of legal size snapper along the channel edges both to the north and south in the river and around the local bridges. Some of the mangroves have been up to 2lbs. Try using a live shrimp or a small white bait. 

The trout bite has slowed some but, I am still getting reports of some nice fish at places like Bear Point, Herman's Bay and the Mooring's Flats. A soft or hard plastic bait has been the best way to go but a live shrimp fished under a popping cork is still a good choice. The catch and release snook & tarpon action has been red hot along the beaches. Just find the bait schools and match the artificial bait to the size of the live baits or if possible try and cast net some live ones.
