From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

Well, it finally warmed back up to a nice comfortable winter this week on the Treasure Coast.  With highs in the mid to high seventies, it was nice to dress light for a change.  We still have the winds to deal with, but the fish have been hungry and it been fun!  I think we can expect more of the same conditions in the coming weeks ahead, so enjoy and get out fishing soon.
Trying to duck in out of the winds have provided us with lots of fish back in some of the islands this week.  Our best bite has been on the croakers.  They have arrived in great numbers and not only fun to catch, but more fun to enjoy on the table.  Just about everyone on the boat caught nice sized croakers this past week.  Sheepshead and snapper are still just as thick around the river as well.  The trout and pompano bite has remained good for us to round out a nice variety of fish.  Along with jacks, ladyfish and a few mackerel and you have an exciting week on the water.                           
Trout and redfish have been hanging in shallow water lately.  Make sure you are moving stealthily and quietly when fishing the flats.  Work your lures very slowly or they will spook easily.  Try a DOA or Monster 3X shrimp, Jerk Bait or Terror Eyz and work them slower than slow for best results.
