Indian River County
Freshwater: There is a toxic algae warning posted for Blue Cypress Lake. Headwaters Lake is still fishing pretty steady for bass, but the fish are in deeper water for much of the day. Use 9-inch worms or lipped crank baits to find them.
St. Lucie County
Inshore: Snook and tarpon are seemingly everywhere because both fish are strictly catch and release. For fish to take home, try fishing the bridges for snapper using cut bait or live shrimp, if they can be found at bait shops.
Surf: The main obstacle here is seaweed washing in. Patrol the beaches to find beaches free of seaweed. There, you will find some whiting and croaker biting, but little else. And most beaches are smothered with seaweed right now.
Inshore: Most of the action in this zone has been on catch and release fishing for snook and tarpon. Snook are being caught along the south shore of the inlet, around docks at Rocky Point, Sewall's Point and Hell's Gate. Tarpon are at The Crossroads or upriver in the North Fork near Harbour Ridge. Tripletail can also be caught around inshore structure like channel markers and bridge pilings.
With recent rainfall near the great lake, the level of it has come up to 12.96 feet. This means bass have more room to work in the northern and western sides of the lake, which is also where an algae bloom has set up, according to satellite imagery. Flip and pitch to mats of vegetation where smaller fish are congregating and where bass are trying to pick off those fish feeding on grass shrimp and more.
