Hello everyone! Fishing is a mixed bag these days, but plenty of action in the right places. The surf fishing is peaking right now, with bait pods popping up in lots of places, and the calm conditions making for some great opportunities. Everything from glass minnows ( Bay Anchovy ),Pilchards, greenies, and mullet have been seen along our beaches, and Tarpon, Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and others are doing their best to thin their numbers. Hogy Swimbaits and DOA CALs are doing the most damage on conventional gear, while flies such as Clouser Minnows, Polar Fibre Minnows, and other baitfish patterns are equally effective. The Indian River is still fishing pretty well, with good numbers of Snook around, as ell as decent Redfish numbers. Seatrout are active early, but fade off once the temps rise. Offshore has been fairly slow, with decent Kingfish numbers in 80′ of water being the highlight. So go hit the beaches or it IRL, and you should be rewarded with plenty of action.

Synopsis: High pressure ridge axis will remain south of the local Atlantic waters through the weekend, resulting in an offshore flow, turning onshore each afternoon near the coast behind the sea breeze. Numerous storms will move offshore this afternoon. Storm activity will decrease Thursday with lower coverage continuing into the weekend. The persistent offshore wind pattern will generate rough chop at times, especially over the Treasure Coast waters.
