Yesterday morning I took a ride to Stuart beach to see if the weeds had subsided and thankfully they were broken up and the surf was fishable . I was doing a “grocery” trip as Bill Taylor from the Black Dog fishing boat would say and targeting whiting and croaker . The tide wasn’t optimum but an hour and a half of outgoing produced a nice cooler of 23 nice whiting and croaker . Bloodworm Fishbites fished in the first trough produced all of the fish . Today my son Paul tried the bridge again and managed to put 5 more nice pompano in the cooler along with lots of catch and release fishing that included Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bluefish, mangrove snapper , and jacks . The bite turned on after the tide turned and started the outgoing cycle . There have been some pompano being caught down in Hobe Sound when the weeds permit so it’s nice to know they are still around . The winds look a little challenging the next couple of days but if conditions allow there should be some pompano opportunities. I’ll be back out on the weekend and will post what happens .
