INSHORE - Look
for the water temps to start cooling down as the fronts start
to move in from the north. As this happens look for the Ft. Pierce
Inlet to come alive with spanish mackerel, bluefish and plenty
of jacks. Along with those fish there will be plenty of sharks.
The bait of choice will be anything shinny like a small Clark
spoon or a Gulfstream Flash jig. Most of these fish will be easy
to find as they will be on top feeding on the small bait fish.
Also along the Inet look for a good push of pompano working their
way to the river. Try a Doc's Goofy jig tipped with a piece of
shrimp. Or you can use a clam strip or a sandlfea in fish it
on the bottom using a pompano rig. Look for croakers, black drum
and sheepshead to start showing up in numbers and they will be
taking shrimp fished on the bottom around the docks or any structure.
Try using a 1/4oz. trol-rite hook fished on a 20 pound fluorocarbon
leader. Now up on the flats things will slow down some. Most
of the trout will move to the deeper pockets and to the channel.
Try using a live shrimp either free lined with a small #2 circle
hook or a small 1/16oz. jig head. As the day heats up the fish
will move up onto the shallow water then you will need to use
a plastic bait live a D.O.A. Shrimp or a C.A.L. Bait fished very
slow. The snook season will come to a close on the 15th but,
for the first 15 days of December look for good action around
the local bridges. Most of the fish caught will be on live baits
like a mullet, pilchard or a greenie. But, a Flair Hawk in 1&1/2
oz. or 2oz. will also be a good option. The bite at the South
Jetty for snook, redfish, snapper and bluefish has been about
the best thing going.
