INSHORE - The inshore fishing in November should be good for Spanish
mackerel, big jacks and a few bluefish. They will be working the
Ft. Pierce Inlet and the Turning Basin. Just look for the birds
and baitfish and you will find the schools of fish. Have a small
1/4oz. spoon or a flashy jig ready and you should have a blast.
The snapper bite around the bridges and in the Ft. Pierce Inlet
will remain steady for anglers using a live shrimp or small white
baits. The Ft. Pierce Inlet has been the best place to catch a
slot size snook while drifting a live mullet. Try the tide changes
for your best chance. The trout & redfish have been a little
shy but, a few nice fish have been reported at places like Bear
Point, Herman's Bay and at Jack Island. A large live shrimp will
be hard to beat. Fish the shrimp under a popping cork in 3 to 5
feet of water. The pompano have made a small showing but it should
pick up as the month goes on. Try a sand flea or a piece of clam
for the best results. The whiting, bluefish, jacks and pompano
should be in the surf and a piece of fresh dead shrimp will work
just fine for most of these fish.
OFFSHORE - The bottom fishing has been red hot until the seas picked
up on Saturday. Plenty of nice snapper and other bottom fish were
bring caught on live shrimp or a piece of cut squid. I had reports
of dolphin and sailfish caught in 80 feet of water on a flat line
with a live bait. Several sails were 5 to 7 feet and all were released.
I also had reports of a few cobia in that same 80 foot area. A
few anglers reported they got dolphin, sails, and kingfish in 80
to 200 feet of water while trolling ballyhoo. There are still plenty
of Spanish, blues ad jacks long the beaches and they will hit anything
