Good morning everyone! The Indian River Lagoon continues to fish well, with Snook and Redfish being taken on shorelines and flats where the water is clean, both on spin and fly. The ever reliable soft plastics, such as Gulp Shrimp, and flies such as sliders and Polar Fibre baitfish are doing the bulk of the catching. There are still fair numbers of Seatrout, but not as many big fish as in the Spring. In the surf, the major weed problems of the weekend are dissipating, and the calmer conditions ahead should lead to some pretty good fishing, as Snook have continued to head to the beaches with the warm temps we’ve had. Offshore, Dolphin fishing has been very good, with our own Amanda Bottenberg pulled in a 50 pounder over the weekend! Grouper and Snapper fishing has also been very productive, and Kingfish continue to be active in 90′ of water. The inlets continue to produce Snook in good numbers, primarily on live Pilchards and Croakers, and a few Tarpon are in the area as well. Good luck out there, and enjoy the great weather we’re having!
Synopsis: The axis of the Atlantic high pressure ridge will remain across the Treasure Coast through late week, then shift east and offshore Florida by this weekend. Expect a gentle to moderate south to southwest breeze for the remainder of the week. Long period east swells have diminished, and will continue to do so through late week.
