Good morning, the weekend reports from offshore remained untouched. Scattered across the reefs here were a few dolphin, sailfish, blackfin tuna and kingfish. The biggest news was from Taylor Hansen fishing aboard the boat Rough-N-It out of New Smyrna Beach on Friday, they went 10 for 12 sailfish on trolled bally-hoo and had 8 bites from wahoo going through 11 dozen bally-hoo. I hope this is the beginning of an awesome sailfish season.
Inshore, mullet continue to invade the Indian River lagoon from Sebastian inlet to the Jupiter inlet. Jack crevalle, snook, tarpon and sharks are taking advantage of the feast. The Ft. Pierce inlet has been a good place to try your luck for any of the above mention critters. There have been numerous under the slot size snook caught at the pocket at Ft. Pierce’s north jetty. Shane Diehl reported catching a snook and redfish in the lagoon using live mullet. Jack crevalle and snook popped mullet schools at the Ft. Pierce Marina and at the Pelican Yacht Club yesterday afternoon. With all the mullet around you never know when an explosion will occur. You need to put your time in and be in the right spot when one does occur.
Don’t forget to mark your calenders on October 22ND for the 4Th annual White’s Tackle Inshore Classic Tournament. Entry spots are still open, so hurry and get yours in today.
Have a great day, Donald.
