Fishing news around the Treasure Coast

The nice thing about the river, you can always hide from the wind. The East side of the river has been the place, whether it be the Indian or St. Lucie rivers. The Middle Cove area has produced an excellent redfish bite as well as trout in the 6lb. range. Live shrimp under a popping cork, live pinfish, and gold spoons have gotten the bites. Jigging the Sailfish flats on the incoming tide has produced a mixed bag for Capt. Bob Busholz on the Catch 22 over the past week. Jacks, Ladyfish, Pompano, Drum, Sheepshead, Triple Tail and Bonefish have been on the list. His best day included 6 bonefish to 17 inches! 1/4oz yellow jigs tipped with shrimp got them all. The Snook fishing in the St. Lucie River has been very good on live baits and bomber plugs. Fish the deep water docks and bridges.

In the surf...

Just as the pompano started making an appearance, the wind turned up. However, the Whiting and Croaker have been there to make up for it. Clams, shrimp, and fish bites have been the choice for bait. Look for big jacks moving up and down the beach following the baitfish. Spoons, topwaters, and live baits with get you an hour battle with a 25-pound fish. There have been a few tarpon showing up around the boils at the power plant.


This will be more of an anticipatory report, as the windy weather we have had is seeming to subside this week. Dolphin fishing has been spectacular. Anglers who got out on the few nice days we had caught plenty of fish. Nice numbers in the 200-foot range northeast of the St. Lucie Inlet, most fish being caught are from 10 - 20 pounds. Trolled ballyhoo as well as live baits have been working. Kingfish are making a showing in 80-feet of water, lots of small fish but good numbers. Cobia and permit in 50-feet. Hopefully those of us in smaller boats can get a shot at getting out there soon.

Henry Caimatto is the owner of the Snook Nook Bait and Tackle shop in Jensen Beach.
