Hi gang, Rick here from Used Pontoon Boats with the Treasure Coast Fishing Report.
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
Capt. Terry Parsons of Wabasso Tackle said action along the Wabasso Causeway included Spanish mackerel, pompano, sheepshead, drum and seatrout. In the Indian River Lagoon, there are small trout, plenty of jacks and ladyfish, a few snook around the docks and mangroves and a few pompano and bluefish. In the Sebastian Inlet, bluefish are being caught on the outgoing tide. Snook are biting live shrimp and plugs, there are oversized redfish, scattered sheepshead, drum and sand perch. Whiting, pompano and bluefish are in the surf.
ST. LUCIE COUNTY
The Fishing Center of St. Lucie's Brennan Smith said a group of anglers that went out Thursday caught a good batch of dolphin in 200 feet of water southeast of the Fort Pierce Inlet. Trolling naked ballyhoo, they caught nearly 30 fish with several in the 20-25 pound range and one over 30 pounds. In the river, Smith said there are redfish along the west side north of Midway Road. Pitch to docks and look for tailing fish. Smith also said don't be surprised to catch a grouper pitching to docks. He landed a 26-incher last week.
Capt. Greg Scherer of Bridge Tender Guide Service out of Billy Bones Bait and Tackle in Port St. Lucie called in to report results from a morning snook hunting outing. His anglers caught and released three short snook, missed a few larger fish and had a 40-incher tail-walk on the surface and spit the hook on a live mullet used as bait. Live shrimp and Storm swim baits worked well to get bites, but Scherer said the action was a little slower than he anticipated on the morning outgoing tide.
Speck fishing has everyone fired up at the lake. Anglers will be scattered in all the usual spots tonight aboard pontoon boats rigged with generators and all the comforts of home as they jig for the tasty little fish. Some of the crowds will be in Harney pond Canal, Indian Prairie Canal, Kissimmee River from the mouth to the locks and in Pelican Bay near Pahokee. Bass fishing has been steady as the bass are getting ready to bed with a new moon coming Wednesday.
