Good Morning, Fishing offshore yesterday was a little on the slow side. A few Cobia were caught north of the Ft. Pierce inlet. The Manta Rays are moving to north and the Cobia are with them. This has been an unprecedented summer for Cobia, there have been wave after wave are large schools of Cobia moving along our coast it seems. Capt. Fox Watkins of Ruby Gene charters told me yesterday that he has not seen Cobia in the kind of numbers we saw this summer and this late into the summer. A few scattered Dolphin were caught in 120′ yesterday but the Kingfishing has all but gone quiet. Not to much to report about bottom fishing. You can still find AJs on the wrecks, but not much else to report.
Inshore, Tiffany McDaniel last night caught 8 snook and 1 Tarpon fishing along the south side of the Ft. Pierce inlet using a Red -Tail Hawk. There are plenty of big Redfish at the Sebastian Inlet. Anglers there have been using swimming plugs and just holding them in the moving water. We received a report late yesterday of a decent Trout bite on the west side of the 17TH. Street bridge in Vero Beach. The Trout were caught using the DOA Terror-Eyz.
Don’t forget to get your entry in early for our Inshore Classic Tournament. Early entry ends September 10TH.
Have a great day, Donald.
