With the rainy, windy conditions we have received, there hasn’t been a lot of offshore fishing activity to report. but hopefully the cooler temps spark some Sailfish activity. Fishing the inlets has been a good bet, with Snook activity good, Tarpon in Ft. Pierce at night, and Sebastian producing large Redfish. The surf has still produced good numbers of Bluefish on spoons and Jigfish metals despite the conditions, and Tuesday the winds go west, which should help. Inshore, there are still plenty of Redfish and Seatrout around, and the recent rains should draw fish to the culverts and around the relief canals. Good luck out there!
Synopsis: A gale centered northeast of the Bahamas will move rapidly northeast into the Atlantic today. Dangerous boating conditions will continue this morning, with frequent Gale Force gusts beyond 20 nautical miles. Winds and seas will quickly subside this afternoon through Tuesday as high pressure builds rapidly over Florida. Winds and seas build again Tuesday night and early Wednesday as a fast moving cold front pushes through the waters. Poor to hazardous boating conditions will continue from mid to late week as a moderate onshore flow freshens as it veers from northeast to east.
