Fishing in the Indian River has been pretty solid, with trout being caught both on the flats early, and along drop offs once the temps rise. Redfish continue to be active along the shorelines, with plenty being caught on flies and soft plastics such as DOA CAL jigs and Gulp Shrimp. Snook are also around in good numbers, haunting the mangroves and occasionally the flats, and with the recent influx of bait, they’ve mostly been caught on Pilchard looking plugs and flies. On the beaches, the recent swell has brought a bit of cloudier water, and some Sargassum sea weed, but much of that is piling up on the beach and out of the water. With conditions improving, Snook should get active again, as well as Spanish Mackerel. Offshore, Dolphin and Kingfish continue to be in close, less than 90 feet of water, but scattered weeds have made things a bit harder. Pockets of cold water have put a damper on some of the Snapper fishing, but if you find warmer water you should be good. Good luck out there!
