Hurricane Irma has come and gone from Florida leaving death and destruction in her wake. Its hard to fathom the extent of damage that has occurred in the Caribbean and most of the Southeastern states. Our hearts go out to those most affected by this tragedy. Please take a moment and donate to one of the many agencies that are providing aid to those in need, like the Red Cross. Our families and friends were fortunate with some damages, but we have our health, homes and loved ones. Please help those who weren't so fortunate!
It will be a few days before it will be safe on the water. When you do venture out, watch for debris from trees, docks and other things floating or under water. Many of the ramps are unusable and dangerous. Be careful!
Look for snapper around docks, channel edges and bridges. Tarpon should be along the beaches and inlets. Try for snook around the jetties, bridges and docks of the river. Look for cleaner water when trout fishing on the grass flats. Try Harbor Branch, Queen's Cove or Bear Point. The DOA Deadly Combo is the perfect way to look for trout on the flats. September is a great month to fish on the Treasure Coast. As soon as the water calms down and clears up, get out and enjoy the fishing!
