Inshore fishing had its ups and downs during the month of February as we experienced a lot of changes in weather patterns and a lot of inconsistent temperatures. Our inshore fishery starts to kick back up in March as water temperatures start rising, more bait shows up inshore and fish start moving around a little more. If you are looking to target Snook, anglers have been finding them around the bridges pretty consistently on outgoing tides. There have been some shrimp and crabs flowing through with the outgoing tides and the Snook have been feeding on them. A lot of anglers will try to match the small shrimp that we have in our river with either a 2” or 3” artificial shrimp such as a Monster 3x or Thumer Shrimp on a jig head to get the bite. If you are on a boat, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to hit up some sea walls with live pilchards or mullet. We have heard about some anglers finding some quality sized fish sunning on the sea walls. There have been plenty of Jack Crevalles as well to tire your arms out! Some Snook have also been caught fishing live baits around docks in the St. Lucie River and around the causeways. As we get into the spring, you can expect to start finding some Tarpon inshore as well.
