Inshore fishing is really starting to heat up as we would expect for the month of June. Snook season is now closed. Catch an release is still tons of fun with the over abundance of snook near our st lucie inlet as of lately. Remember to treat the larger snook with care an safely release them as soon as possible to protect this great fishery. Tarpon fishing has been good both in the river an along the local beaches. Early morning will give you better odds at hooking fish. Jacks have been around in good numbers along the beaches too. Greenies & pilchards have been showing up in large schools along the beaches and out as far as 60’ if you know where to look. Sabiki a few dozen baits for an action packed day of fishing this time of year. Fishing these baits free lined around structure or casting at large schools of predatory fish will be a blast. Offshore fishing has been great this week for lots of mahi, most have been peanut size but expect a random big bull dolphin in the mix if you spend most of the day searching for mahi in deeper water. Sailfish have been eating live baits on the 6 & 8 mile reef while drifting live baits on the surface. Bottom fishing has been good for mutton snapper and the 6 & 8 mile reef system too. Long leader rigs with live or dead baits on the bottom while fishing on anchor will get the bites. Expect a mix of other species while on anchor. Put live baits out on the surface for added odds at additional pelagics swimming along the 6 & 8 mile reef.

Tight lines,
