Indian River County
Inshore: Capt. Glyn Austin of Going Coastal charters in Sebastian said there is a mixed bag of catches coming on live crabs drifted through the inlet or on live croakers. Snook (catch and release only), tarpon, redfish, jacks and sharks all are part of the action which is pretty much non-stop.
Freshwater: Although the bass bite cools down when the temperature heats up, Headwaters Lake is still fishing like the trophy producer that it is. Fish are being caught in deeper water using shaky head jigs, worms and lipped plugs.
St. Lucie County
Inshore: Many anglers believe snook can read a calendar because how else would one explain why we catch so many of them after the season closes? Tarpon, jacks and sharks are roaming the inshore waters of the lagoon taking live shrimp or live pilchards. Trout are on the points of mangrove islands north of the causeway.
Surf: Pretty bleak reports coming in from the surf this week. Look for beaches with little or no sargassum weed, but other than a few whiting, some catch and release snook and some small sharks, there isn't really anything else biting.
Inshore: Snook, which are catch and release right now, can be caught around docks, bridge pilings and along the shorelines of the jetties. Tripletail can be caught using live shrimp and fishing around channel markers and bridge pilings. Jacks are running through the inlet like packs of wolves.
The expansive lake is said to have cyanobacteria on it and this year it is amassing in the northern and western portions of the lake. This is where the fish are and were the majority of fishing takes place. Although no one has truthed it to this outdoors writer yet, there are still bass being caught and released at the great lake. Flip and pitch vegetative mats to find fish. Use worms or spinnerbaits to dial in on where the bass are. As the sun gets higher in the sky, the bass tend to run for deeper water.
