As things continue to settle out from the hurricane, there is some good fishing to be had. Snook fishing in Fort Pierce and Sebastian inlets has been quite good since he season opened, with live bait producing the best results. There have also been Tarpon in the evenings on outgoing tide as well. Inshore, fishing overall has been pretty good, and the water has been clearing as well. Snook have been active along docks, deeper shorelines, and outflows, and baby Tarpon have been receptive as well along outflows and shorelines. Redfish have been tougher to sight fish, but those working shorelines with soft plastics have been rewarded, and some areas are sight fishing friendly. Seatrout have been active early, but as the sun and heat get up thee they push out. Offshore, Dolphin have been active in about 200′ of water, but most everything inside that has been pretty dirty. Surf fishing is still pretty tough, with the water still stirred up from the storm. The Fishing For Futures Tournament in Fort Pierce has been postponed due to higher seas this weekend. Good luck out there!

Marine Zone Forecast
Synopsis: The axis of the Atlantic ridge will remain draped over the Mid and Deep South into the weekend and will generate a moderate to fresh east-northeast breeze across the local Atlantic. These winds will push an easterly swell into the local Atlantic waters that will enhance the total wave heights and create occasionally rough conditions. A westward moving inverted trough will approach the waters into late week and bring a period of poor boating conditions with increasing precipitation chances.
