Good morning, the weather folks are telling us that we might see some fall air arrive along the Treasure Coast this Sunday and Monday. Winds are supposed to be higher and from the northeast direction which could affect sea conditions. There have been a few sailfish caught and released over the last few days and should continue improve as we move towards our fall fishing patterns. A few dolphin, wahoo and kingfish have been scattered over the reefs, trolling bally-hoo will provide you with the best results. Black sea bass and some snapper scattered on our areas reefs and a few grouper have been found in deeper water. A diver in the store this morning told me he has been finding some hogfish on the shallow reefs south of Ft. Pierce.
Inshore, some big tarpon moved in to the inlet last night and were crashing the mullet for hours. Kadri Benton hooked 4 on green back windcheaters only to loose all 4 tarpon. The inlet also provided anglers with a mix of ladyfish, jack crevalle, snook and bluefish. Ian Mcpherson reported a catch of redfish somewhere in the lagoon and we have heard of some good catches of redfish north around Harbor Branch.
Mark your calenders for the White’s Tackle Inshore Classic Tournament to be held on Saturday October 22 with the captain’s meeting on Friday October 21 at Cobb’s Landing.
Have a great day, Donald.
