Good Morning, Offshore the wind finally calmed down a little and a few boats got out yesterday with reports of some dolphin and some kings scattered in 150 to 200ft mullet and ballyhoo have been the bait of choice. the bottom fishing should be decent with some snapper and a few grouper on the deep wrecks. There has been a few reports of some greenies just to the north of the inlet in 40 to 50ft of water. Inshore mullet are scattered around to the south around Bear point to middle cove find the bait and you will find the fish. The snook bite has been hit or miss with live bait in the inlets and around the bridges on the outgoing tide. The jig bite at night has been good in Stuart around the bridges on the outgoing tide. To the north of Ft. Pierce around Vero Shores a few nice trout and reds have been reported soft baits and top water produced the best around first light. It looks like the wind will lay down for the weekend hopefully everyone can get out. Todays weather
ynopsis: An area of high pressure will stretch over the southeast U.S. and western Atlantic into the weekend before moving off the Mid Atlantic coast on Sunday. A weak cold front will approach the region over the weekend, but is expected to stall over the Deep South. A light to gentle onshore breeze today will become moderate to fresh Saturday and Sunday with the approaching front. Seas will continue to subside today before rebuilding over the weekend.
Small craft should exercise caution near inlets during the twice daily outgoing tides due to very long period swells. The next outgoing tide cycle will be toward daybreak Friday morning through mid morning.
