Good Morning, Inshore over the weekend was a little slow but there was a few nice reds to the north around Vero and Round island with a few trout around live bait has produced the best. The snapper bite on the channel edges has been good on the incoming tide live shrimp and little greenies. The snook bite has been decent around the bridges on live bait and jigs on the out going tide. The beach fishing has been steady with a few snook and a bunch of tarpon around find the bait and you will find the fish. Offshore over the weekend the sail fish bite was good to the south off Stuart in 60 to 60ft on live bait with a few dolphin mixed in. The kingfish bite has been good with a few nice fish around to the north on the bait schools. The mangrove bite has been good offshore in 60 to 80ft with a few muttons mixed in live and cut bait have produced well. Looks like the weather will be good this week to hopefully everyone can get out !
Synopsis: The Atlantic ridge axis will be near or slightly north of Cape Canaveral today before lifting into north Florida tonight. As the ridge shifts north of central Florida through Tuesday, an inverted trough will move northwest from the Bahamas across east central Florida and the adjacent Atlantic. Lower coverage of showers and storms expected today, but storm coverage will increase again tonight and Tuesday as the inverted trough approaches and moves across the local waters. The ridge axis is forecast to then remain near or north Cape Canaveral through late week, resulting in a light but steady southeasterly breeze.
