Good morning Ft. Pierce,
Well the Pelican kicked off yesterday and some fair numbers of fish were caught. Everyone fished way to the North. Top boat "Easy Rider" was in first with 5 fish. We have the radio on this morning and the bite seems to be stronger today already. There were a couple of wahoo caught yesterday up to around 30 pounds and some dolphin as well. I think the seas are going to cooperate the rest of the week for the tournament (which is amazing) so we should see some good catches posted. I think we are going swordfishing Saturday night for the first time in a few weeks so I will put up a report on that Sunday morning. I did hear some of the commercial buoy fisherman down south have been catching them pretty steady so we will see how it goes.
I received a few inshore reports yesterday. It sounds like the flounder fishing has slowed quite a bit this week in the inlet area. There have been a few caught here and there but nothing like it was the last few weeks. Try fishing some of the deeper mangrove shorelines and holes this week. The river water is still really chilly. Trout and pompano remain the main targets with a few incidental snook and redfish thrown in. We got the new Rapala Sub-Walks in yesterday which is a subsurface walk the dog plug that have been producing good results.
Looks like a great day and a good forecast for the weekend so get off the couch and head East!
