INSHORE - The inshore fishing has been good the last
10 days with plenty of trout & redfish being reported. Try
places like Jack Island, Queen's Cove and the docks along both
north and south Indian River Dr. Live pilchard, shrimp or small
pinfish have been working the best. Free line a live pilchard or
pinfish and fish the live shrimp under a popping cork. Around the
Ft. Pierce Inlet look for Spanish mackerel, bluefish and jacks.
These fish will take spoons and shinny jigs. The snook fishing
has been a little slow but, the North Bridge has been a good place
to try. Again, use live baits and fish them around the draw. the
bottom fishing for sheepshead and black drum has been good for
anglers using fiddler crabs or live shrimp. Fish around the bridges
OFFSHORE - The offshore fishing has been okay with a few dolphin
being caught in 150 to 300 feet of water and they were taking ballyhoo.
I did get reports of several nice wahoo in that same area. The
kingfish bite has been in 50 feet of water and they have been taking
live baits. The bottom bite for snapper, sheepshead and sea bass
has been good starting in 55 feet of water when fishing over the
reefs. Try a live shrimp or piece of cut bait for the best results.
Plenty of action at the Boils with redfish, Spanish mackerel, bluefish
and jacks taking various baits.
