Sailfish are beginning to show up, with the best bet being fishing live bait in 90′ to 100′ of water. Snapper fishing in 35′ to 45′ of water has been very good, with greenies and other bait readily available nearshore. The Pompano fishing along the beaches is slowly improving, and a little cooler weather should kick it into high gear. Clams and sand fleas have been the best bet. Snook continue to be caught on the beaches, with a few larger specimens caught on live bait from Riomar to north of Ft. Pierce Inlet, and Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish have also been fairly consistent. The inlets are still producing Snook, but live bait is still key, and Sebastian is still producing a few Redfish as well. Inside, Snook are still active, particularly during early morning hours, with live bait, soft plastics, and even topwater plugs doing damage. Redfish are becoming more prevalent, particularly in the Round Island area, and soft plastics are producing the best. Get out and catch some!
