Anglers fishing the Stuart causeway have been catching good numbers of flounder the past few days. Throwing live shrimp or D.O.A. shrimp lures is working best.
Back up in the north fork of the St. Lucie River there has been a good snook bite. Live mullet or pilchards have been working best, but if you can’t find them D.O.A. artificial mullet lures have been working as well. Also, up in the north fork the tarpon action has been pretty good.
The bluegill and shellcracker bite is still excellent. Anglers working King’s Bar, Tin House Cover and the Kissimmee River are having a blast catching these tasty pan fish. Though worms and crickets have been working best, beetle spins and tiny crank baits are also getting the job done. The bass bite has been best in the early mornings. Anglers using chatter baits and swim jigs, and hitting the outside grasslines, in the King’s Bar, Tin House Cove and Third Point areas are catching their share. After the early morning bite slows down, switching to shiners has kept the action going.
