Good morning, windy weather conditions persisted over the weekend and only a few boats fished offshore. The annual Gator Bait Classic tournament was held on Saturday out of the Ft. Pierce city marina with 10 boats participating and only a few caught fish. The lead boat in the tournament caught a handful of dolphin to 25 pounds. A few other boats also weighed in some dolphin. Wind and water temperatures is making it difficult to fish offshore these days but as soon as that changes, we should return to normal spring time dolphin action.
Inshore, trout and snook fishing remains the topic of discussion locally. Live bait has been working well on both species on the flats and in the inlet. Trout fishing in the early a.m. has been producing a few gator trout. We have received reports of some good fishing for snook, tarpon and redfish at the Sebastian inlet on live bait as well. Have a great day, Donald.
