Good morning, it looks like we are in for a decent summer time weekend, a little hot and steamy but that is August in Florida. Offshore fishing remains scattered across a wide area. There have been dolphin, cobia and sailfish caught this week. This has certainly has been a good summer for red snapper although that fishery is now closed, bottom fisherman have been reporting catches all through the summer. The east winds changed the dynamics of the near shore snook and tarpon fishery and bait along the beach is now scattered.
Inshore, snook fishing has been good in and around the Ft. Pierce inlet with live bait and jigs. Back in the lagoon Yo-Zuri 3D minnows have been producing good catches of snook . Trout fishing remains steady in the early morning, top water plugs and soft plastics have been working well there. Mangrove snapper fishing with live shrimp is still good around the bridges and the channel edges.
Have a great week end, Donald.
