From Whites Tackle - Ft Pierce / Stuart

Fishing in the Indian River has been excellent for Sea Trout, with both numbers and size available, The water following the latest cold front is gin clear in most areas, and there’s plenty of nice fish on the flats and also along the drop offs. Soft plastics and flies such as shrimp patterns and Polar Fibre Minnows have been very effective, as well as live shrimp. Redfish numbers are decent, with most hanging around the shorelines, and falling for the same offerings as the Seatrout. There’s also some nice Snook around, and with the water warming back up a bit they are getting a bit more active, though the big boys are always tough to fool. Surf fishing has been up and down, with smaller Pompano being caught, along with Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish as well. There have also been a few Tarpon around in the Cove area in Vero, with a few being caught from the sand in the last week or so, a pleasant surprise for this time of year. Snook fishing in Sebastian Inlet at night has been really good, on both flare jigs and for those pulling plugs such as the Rapala Shad Rap.
