Good morning, congratulations to Capt. Geoff Quatraro and the crew aboard the Nelsheen for winning the 3rd annual AGC Offshore Challenge on Saturday. Slow fishing conditions persisted along the Treasure Coast over the week end and the Nelsheen crew won the total aggregate weight in the tournament with 50+ pounds of kingfish. Geoff commented that it was tough to find bait and they managed to find small sardines and cigar minnows at the high drop and at the club barge. 37 other boats fished the tournament with just a handful of small dolphin and a sailfish or 2 releases.
Inshore, snook anglers are busy getting ready for the opening of snook season. There are plenty of snook in the inlets and the lagoon to keep you busy. Jack crevalle are cruising in the lagoon as well, bruising up on the bait pods. Trout fishing has been good early in the morning on the west side of the lagoon down to the south of the causeways.
Have a great day, Donald.
