From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce
We have been enjoying some fantastic weather this week on the Treasure Coast. Days have been warm, but windy as is the norm for April. You usually get a couple days each week that the wind dies down and gives you a chance get out fishing. Rain is always in the forecast this time of year, so watch the weather and plan your trips accordingly. Water temperatures have been in the mid to high 70's. The incoming tides have provided us with our best fishing opportunities lately. It's a great time of year to get out fishing!
April is a good time to fish the grass flats for trout and other species. Try a DOA Deadly Combo or Monster 3X Paddle X on the flats anytime during the day. Monster 3X or DOA shrimp are great around mangroves, docks and grass flats for a number of species including redfish, snook and trout. The bite has been good when you can get to areas like Bear Point, Harbor Branch and Round Island. On the windy days, work with the winds and tides to you advantage as best you can. Islands can be productive and help get you out of the winds.
