Good Morning, Offshore over the weekend was good with a few nice cobia around with the cold water moving in jigs and live bait have worked the best for them. The dolphin bite is a little slow but a few fish around with a sail mixed in to the north of Ft. Pierce. The inshore bite has been good with a few nice snook and trout to the north of north bridge on live bait around first light. The beach fishing has been steady with snook and tarpon from Vero to Stuart just find the bait and you will find the fish. Todays weather info-
