I hope everyone who planned on fishing our beaches today got out and enjoyed the great weather and excellent surf action that was evident along our local beaches. I had the pleasure of taking Eric and Laura Hutter of Palm City to Stuart Beach on a surf charter and what a great day it was. These two are accomplished anglers, but new to surf fishing during the summer months on the Treasure Coast. They certainly picked the right day, as they caught lots of nice whiting, croaker, and one jack from this morning until early this afternoon. Fishbites and cut shrimp were once again the baits that put the fish in the cooler and all of the bites occured in the first trough 5 to 5 yards from the beach. I also spoke with a friend who fished at Middle Cove today and he caught some nice whiting along with a number of bonefish at that location. We are finally seeing some great conditions to fish the beach with light winds and a calm surf. Looking ahead to this week the forecast remains excellent and I expect the whiting, croaker, jacks, and bonefish to continue to bend the rods. We did see a nice school of pilchards moving to the south and the tarpon and big jacks should be right on their heels as the amount of bait starts to increase . Have a great week and catch em up.
