The offshore bite has been a little slower than last week, There have been reports of a few Sailfish caught in 350′ out of Ft. Pierce. The Mahi bite has slowed down as well in Stuart with only 1 or 2 fish caught per boat this week. Trolling dead Ballyhoo naked or with green/yellow skirts has worked the best. Spanish Mackerel fishing has still been great off the beach and near shore. Gotcha plugs, Clark spoons, and Flash minnows have been producing the best.
Pompano fishing has been great out of Stuart, fishing the channels by the inlet and the Sailfish Flats have been the best spot to find them. 3/8oz and 1/2oz jigs have worked the best due to the faster current. Snook fishing around the bridges has still been good in Ft Pierce and Stuart, Jigs and big swimbaits have worked the best in Stuart and Rapala Shad-Raps trolled along the pilings have worked the best in Ft Pierce. Good luck and tight lines!
