Good morning, anglers are still reporting catches of dolphin, kingfish, cobia and those large summer time sailfish offshore the last couple of days. Live bait fishing under a kite in 200 feet of water, Lee Howard reported the catch of 2 large blackfin tuna and the release of a sailfish. An unknown angler reported to Kadri Benton a catch of 3 dolphin and 1 sailfish release in 120 feet of water, south east of the Ft. Pierce inlet. There is plenty of live bait, pilchards and greenies along the beach and around the buoys right now. Dave Moberg reported catching a 20# cobia along the north beach on a live bait yesterday.
Inshore, on the south jetty last night the action focused on black margates. Anglers using live shrimp were catching buckets full of the tasty critters. Jack Crevalle have also been in the inlet along with snook. Live bait has been producing snook along the dock line south in the lagoon. Artificials have not been particularly good in this record heat wave. You will want to get your fishing in early to try and beat the afternoon thunderstorms.
Have a great day, Donald.
