Good Morning, Offshore the last couple of days and nights have been producing some good reports. Last night Capt. Al Winchell fishing out of the St Lucie inlet caught a 67 inch approximately 175# Swordfish on a squid at a depth of 300′ in 1200′ of water using the L/P Disco light. Reports are indicating that a strong Swordfish bite is happening on the rise of this full moon. Capt. Al arrived at their depth at 8:30p.m. and was on his way back to the inlet at 10:30p.m. Closer to shore you can find Blue Runners at the 12 buoy with Sardines popping up later in the morning. There have been plenty of Kingfish around and you can still find a Cobia and a few Dolphin around. Still not to much to report from the bottom dwellers.
Inshore, you can find plenty of Snook around the south jetty and in the Ft. Pierce inlet. Trying to catch a legal Snook has been a bit of a challenge. That legal slot limit of 28"-32" has been elusive. We received reports of some decent redfish catches around the Harbor Branch area. One report from yesterday had anglers using the Riptide Mullet in the opening night color, catching Redfish and a nice flounder. The weather for this long Labor Day weekend is forecast to be good. Try to get out and get into some of this good action.
Don’t forget to get registered for our Inshore Classic Tournament to be held on October 10TH.
Have a great day, Donald.
