Good morning, I hope everyone is enjoying this great weather! The fish are certainly enjoying it. Snook, sea trout, redfish, pompano, mackerel, bluefish and jacks have all been tugging on peoples line in the Indian River. A variety of artificial lures have worked well for all the species listed. Everything from spoons and jigs for the pompano, jacks, and mackerel, to soft plastic baits and top water plugs for the snook, sea trout, and redfish. I have heard reports of fish being caught all up and down the river. The west shore line south of Ft. Pierce has been a great area to catch a mixed bag of fish. The docks provide great habitat for bait and predator fish alike. The majority of the redfish have been caught to the north closer to Vero. The shallow grass flats have been holding numbers of reds that can be caught sighting with soft plastics and flies.
The offshore fishing has also remained fair. it seems to be a different report each day. Sailfish are still the focus of most anglers venturing offshore. Yesterday the Fa La Me caught seven sailfish off St. Lucie inlet. There have also been a mix of king mackerels and dolphin in the area of the sails. The depth all the sail action has been is 100' to 160' and this week it has been better to the south. I also heard a swordfish report from last night. A 170 pound sword was caught in 1450' off Stuart. The guys also had two other bites while drifted offshore out to as deep as 1750'.
Stop by and check out the new White's Tackle hoodys we just got in. They're just right on these cool mornings we've been having.
