Good morning, with the weekend just around the corner, our report remains slow fishing to be found offshore. One boat reported yesterday that they put in 14 hours trolling off Ft. Pierce with out hooking a single fish. The water was reported dirty on the bottom and the water temperature on the remains cold. Grouper and amberjack can be found over the wrecks using live bait and jigs.
Inshore, water temperatures in the lagoon remain hot and fishing can be a little on the slow side. Early morning and after sunset have been the best times to find snook, trout and tarpon feeding. Kadri Benton and Jon Repass found some cooperating snook last night at 11:30p.m. at the start of the incoming tide. They were using white and blue and purple and green jigs for the snook. The tarpon have been active at the mouth of the inlet late at night feeding on mullet. Tarpon were also reported around the moorings in Vero Beach. One angler phoned the shop yesterday and reported a fish kill of mullet and squid around Jaycee Park. I don’t believe I have ever heard of a squid kill in the lagoon. He was going to call the fish kill hot line for the FWC @ (800-636-0511).
TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY HERE AT WHITE’S TACKLE AND ARCHERY. MATT MONKS OF TEN POINT CROSSBOWS WILL HOST AN ARCHERY DEMONSTRATION BEGINNING AT 9:00 A.M. BE SURE TO STOP BY AND VISIT WITH MATT AND KARL.
Have a great weekend, Donald.
