With the cooler temps, fishing in the Indian River has really been good for redfish, snook, and trout. Redfish are still around shorelines with clear water, and have fallen for plenty of artificials, especially DOA Shrimp and CAL shad tail jigs. Snook have been tight to the mangroves, but plenty of them are being caught on plugs such as Mirrodines and Yo-Zuri 3D Inshore Twitchbaits.

Trout catches have been increasing, with fish being caught on a variety of jigs and plugs in 3 to 4 feet of water. On the beach, plenty of Spanish are being caught in The Cove area on spoons and jigs, with bluefish falling for the same and the occasional topwater plug. The water in the inlets has been really clear. making live mullet or croakers the best bet for snook, but there are still some falling for flare jigs and plugs.
