With the cooler temps we’ve received, the Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish bite in the surf has been very good, with most fish falling to spoons and bright jigs. There are still a few nice Snook being caught from the beaches, as well as more Pompano being caught on sand fleas and clams. The Indian River is definitely clearing up, and the higher water levels have quite a few fish hugging the mangroves, both Redfish and Snook. With and abundance of Pilchards around, plugs like the Mirrolure Mirrodine and flies such as the Polar Fibre Minnow have been doing the heavy lifting. Offshore, Cobia and King Mackerel fishing on the reef has been really good, and the Dolphin bite has held up as well. Snook in the inlets have been a bit tough on artificials, but live pinfish and pigfish have been effective. Quite a few Redfish have moved into Sebastian Inlet, as well as some Tarpon, with flare jigs working well.
We’ve got plenty of YETI’s popular new Wine Tumblers in stock in a variety of colors, as well as some great looking Hook N Hide belts and buckles, including the new Snook buckle, great for those hard to buy for people on your list.
Synopsis: High pressure over the Gulf of Mexico will push across the Florida Peninsula through Friday. A gentle to moderate north-northwest breeze will slacken and veer to the north-northeast today, then will diminish to a light easterly breeze overnight. As the high pressure center settles pushes into the adjacent Atlantic winds will shift to the southeast. Seas will begin to rebuild by over the weekend as winds shift to south to southwest and freshen between the retreating Atlantic ridge and a large storm system moving across the central and eastern U.S.
