Scouting Around With Chris Beachwalker & Coastal Angler & The Angler Magazine

Redfish will be hot as well and in the same areas of the trout.  If you’d like to get some really big ones and lots of numbers, drive up to Sebastian State Park and fish the jetty and catwalk. I like to get some small finger mullet and hook them to a number 5 circle hook with 50-pound leader fished on the bottom. They hang in schools, so when you hook one, everyone will get bites and at the same time. Go way out on the jetty to the curve. This is where you can get a lot of fish.
Fish the tides moving in or out. Snook fishing opened February 1, and night time is your best bet. Bridge fishing at night under the lights is where you’ll find them. Use a flair hawk jig or a soft rubber bait that gets down deep. Cold fronts and a north wind are ideal conditions.
On the beach, the biggest jacks of the year will show up to begin spawning.  Any inlet that meets the beach will be the place to be. I like to use spoons or chuggers first thing in the morning. Hold on because some of these will be over 30-pounds. Flounder fishing in Fort Pierce will be good. Fish the little bend in the jetty with a shrimp or a live mullet on the bottom. Again, cold fronts are the best time for action.
