South Indian River Fishing Report 6/22

Inshore:

Rainy days continued again this week. Good to see the rain, but it is not always the most cooperative weather for fishing. Plan your days carefully and watch those skies around you. It's been hot so far this summer and I expect it will be another hot summer this year. Water temperatures have been in the mid to high seventies as the rains help keep the water cooler.

This week was grandparents day for Eva and myself. Our grandkids, Chloe and Brody, are usually too busy during the school year and this has been our first chance to get them out fishing. It wasn't the best day to fish with rain, thunder and winds all around, but we had a fun day with them and the kids caught a variety of fish! It's always a fun day for me when the grandkids and Eva can join me. They are all anxious to get out again soon! Take your kids fishing! It creates lasting memories for everyone!

Offshore has provided dolphin, cobia, snapper and a host of other fish for anglers when they can get out on the seas. Inshore look for trout on the grass flats with DOA Deadly Combos in three to five feet of water. Top water at first light can find them in very shallow water. Redfish should be hanging around mangroves and docks. The snook bite around the bridges and inlets has been good for anglers using live bait. Snapper have been plentiful around structure with keeper sized fish in the river now. June might be a wet month, but the fishing has been good most days on the Treasure Coast.

Don't forget hydration and sunscreen! Both are very important to your health and can prevent bad things happening!

Remember, as always, fishing is not just another hobby……it's an ADVENTURE!

Good Fishing,

South Indian River Fishing Report 6/15

Inshore:

Well, we went from drought to deluge! Much needed rains have been arriving daily to fall on the Treasure Coast lately. It put a halt to most of the fishing, but we certainly welcomed the wet weather. The rainy season arrived in full force. The water temps have cooled down into the 70's. Watch the forecasts and plan your fishing adventures accordingly.

We did get out earlier in the week just before the soakings hit the area hard. Don, Sherman and Art were back this month and brought their golfing buddy, Marty, with them. The guys caught some nice trout along with keeper mangrove snapper and other assorted species to make for a fun day. We got off the water before the first rains of the day moved into the area. Now, it has taken three days to try and get the yard mowed before I need to get a hay baler! The trout bite picked up this week on the grass flats. DOA Deadly Combos will work great to locate the trout. We have found some nice snapper hanging around the docks this week. Largest mangrove was 16". Fishing will be good, but watch the weather!

Rainy weather make for a good time to check your equipment. Oiling reels, checking guides and cleaning out those cubby holes that you store lures and assorted other tackle. Don't forget that safety equipment on the boat. Dates of flares are often that forgotten thing that you know will be checked on a safety inspection. Check that first aid kit to make sure everything is stocked and usable in case of emergency.

Remember, as always, fishing is not just another hobby……it's an ADVENTURE!

Good Fishing,
