The rain and winds continue around the area this week. The water is still dirty and will remain that way for some time ahead. I am seeing some cleaner water coming in the Fort Pierce inlet the high ends of the tide, but it still has a long way to go before the run off is over. There are still lots of mullet in the river being chased by the predators.
There has been a good trout bite lately with lots of juvenile fish to be had. The DOA shrimp is one of the best choices for fishing anywhere on the river. New Penny has been our best color for the dirty water conditions. Work your lures slowly this time of year as the water temperatures fall. Our redfish have come while fishing mangroves and docks. There are lots of juvenile snook around the mangroves, too. Look for some tarpon around the inlet area.
