Good morning everyone! It looks like we’ve settled into some fairly constant temperatures, so if we can get a bit more sun and a bit less rain and clouds we should be good. Fishing in the IRL has been good overall for Redfish, Seatrout, Snook, and even Tarpon. Snook have been showing up along shorelines, docks, and even the flats of late, with DOA CAL soft plastics and Yo-Zuri suspending plugs doing the most work. Redfish are still prevalent around the shorelines, being caught on a variety of soft plastics and flies such as the Rattling Shrimp. Seatrout continue to haunt the drop offs and pot holes, with soft plastics and even topwater plugs doing damage. Baby to mid sized Tarpon are showing up in the Sebastian River and basins providing plenty of thrills for those with some patience. Offshore, those willing to venture out a bit deeper are finding Dolphin in around 300′ of water, and Cobia are still being caught in nearshore waters. Sebastian Inlet has been excellent for Redfish, using flare jigs and live bait, while Snook fishing has been off in both Sebastian and Fort Pierce. There have also been plenty of Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, and Pompano being caught from the jetty in Fort Pierce. Good luck out there!
Synopsis: High pressure centered over the southeast states will move east into the Atlantic tonight ahead of a fast moving storm system that will drag a cool front near north Florida by Friday. Northeast winds today will veer to east to southeast Thursday and southeast to south on Friday ahead of the front. High pressure will then rebuild from the Atlantic into north Florida and the southeast U.S. this weekend, with onshore flow redeveloping.
