I hope everyone had a good weekend of fishing. Offshore was pretty good all weekend (despite the wind). The Miss "L" had a great day off of Ft. Pierce yesterday with their largest dolphin tipping the scales at 72 pounds. Awesome fish!!! I talked with Moon Crossman this morning and the fishing aboard the "Twenty" was good yesterday as well. Moon reported two dolphin in the 30 pound class as well as a half dozen or so smaller green bait mashers, a sail release, and a king.
Inshore was still pretty hot all weekend. T.J. Kiefer caught a few nice snook and reds near the inlet yesterday morning. Gulp shrimp and jerk shads were working well. The redfish are still schooled up in a few spots but are getting pressured and not cooperating as well as last week. There is still a lot of bait in the river. Fish around the heaviest concentrations of mullet for the reds. They will mix in with he large mullet and eat what they are kicking up off of the bottom. Top water fishing should continue to get better this month all the way through the summer with the warming water.
Below is a picture of Devin Sapusek. Devin is the son of Doug from Fathom27 web design who did this website. This was Devin's second fish ever and went 15 pounds on the boga. When Doug told Devin the fish was 35 inches and had to be released because it was too big, Devin was ready to call it a day. Way to go Devin, that's what it's all about!
