The sailfish bite has been slow the past week with most recreational boats catching 1 or 2 Sails a day and the Sportfishing guys catching 3-5 a day. Earlier this week 16 boats fished the Quickie Sailfish tournament and caught a total of 53 both days. The “Alikai” took the win with 8 fish overall! Congrats guys! Tomorrow is the final day of the Pirates Cove Sailfish Classic, so far a total of 45 Sails have been caught. There have been reports of a few Blackfin around as well. The Wahoo bite across the stream has been pretty good too, we’ve had many boats coming back with reports of 40-70lb fish being caught.
The inshore Redfishing has been great in Ft Pierce and Vero, with the tide being so high it’s best to hit shorelines and shallow flats on a low tide. Bridge fishing in Stuart has been god as well with a bunch of those big winter time slobs being caught. Flair hawks and big swimbaits are your best bet. The beach has been on fire with Pompano and Bluefish, Sandfleas and clams are to go to for the Pomps. 1/2oz – 1.5oz spoons are your best bet for the Bluefish and Spanish Macks.
