Fishing the inlets and bridges at night for Snook has been pretty solid, both on live bait and flare jigs, and a few Tarpon are still being caught at night in Fort Pierce. Flounder are also starting to show up in the inlets, caught mostly on live finger mullet and shrimp, and Pompano fishing has been good on incoming water. Offshore conditions look to be fairly rough for a few days, but fishing has been good. Cobia are abundant, as are Kingfish, and Sailfish have been plentiful to the north. In the Indian River, Redfish catches continue to be good throughout the area. Most fish are holding near mangrove shorelines, and birds on those shorelines are a good indication of bait, and thus fish. Snook are showing back up a bit, and as the water warms a bit that should get better. The surf has been good, with Spanish Mackerel prolific in some areas, and some Pompano. There have been lots of Spinner Sharks as well. Good luck out there! Don’t forget we have Capt. Joe Gonzalez in the Vero store on Saturday, March 23rd, starting at 1:00 talking about fish behavior and fishing for Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon in South Florida, don’t miss it!
