Inshore this week-
Fishing has been great inshore for Small Snook, Seatrout, Sheepshead, Flounder, Redfish, JAcks, Ladyfish, & bluefish. Fishing the Indian River with a combination of live bait & artificial has been very productive in waters 2-6′ deep this week. Doa cals, Berkley gulp shrimp, Docs goofy jigs, live mullet, & live shrimp have been working best on our inshore trips as of lately. We tend to slow down lure presentation in the winter due to slightly cooler water temps. Look for clean water and bird activity for increased success rates when fishing our indian river.
Fishing Pecks lake just outside our st lucie inlet has been very productive lately for thousands of Spanish Mackerel. Also mixed in are many Kingfish, Snapper, Sheepshead, JAcks, Ladyfish, & Bluefish. Fishing on our nearshore reefs there are lots of snapper to catch as well. Mostly Lane Snappers in shallower depths, but one can expect Muttons, Yellowtail, & Mangrove snappers as well. A few Cobia are also being caught on nearshore trips too! mostly smaller cbia 20-30 lbs but a great addition to the dinner table none the less. Bonita and sharks are around in full swing as well.
Fishing offshore has been fair this week for Sailfish, Mahi, Tuna, and Kingfish. We are also catching some Wahoo on the troll as well. Trolling a five line spread of ballyhoo & mullet is producing Sailfish, Mahi, Cobia, Bonita, Blackfin Tuna, & kingfish. Fishing wire long riggers will increase your chances at Wahoo & Kings. Seas should calm down the first of the year so lets get out there and catch some Pelagics!
