South Indian River Fishing Report 9/14

Hurricane Irma has come and gone from Florida leaving death and destruction in her wake. Its hard to fathom the extent of damage that has occurred in the Caribbean and most of the Southeastern states. Our hearts go out to those most affected by this tragedy. Please take a moment and donate to one of the many agencies that are providing aid to those in need, like the Red Cross. Our families and friends were fortunate with some damages, but we have our health, homes and loved ones. Please help those who weren't so fortunate!

It will be a few days before it will be safe on the water. When you do venture out, watch for debris from trees, docks and other things floating or under water. Many of the ramps are unusable and dangerous. Be careful! Look for snapper around docks, channel edges and bridges. Tarpon should be along the beaches and inlets. Try for snook around the jetties, bridges and docks of the river. Look for cleaner water when trout fishing on the grass flats. Try Harbor Branch, Queen's Cove or Bear Point. The DOA Deadly Combo is the perfect way to look for trout on the flats. September is a great month to fish on the Treasure Coast. As soon as the water calms down and clears up, get out and enjoy the fishing!

Once again, use extreme caution when on the water. Debris floating just under the surface can ruin your day and your boat. Be safe and enjoy the rest of September!

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

Good Fishing,

South Indian River Fishing Report 8/9

Inshore:

It has continued to be in the 90's around the Treasure Coast this week. We should start seeing some relief soon as fall approaches and things get milder for us. It certainly will be a welcome relief from this long hot summer! Be aware of afternoon storms that can dampen things for you. Enjoy the great fishing action!

Glass minnows have been filling the river and bringing lots of action for anglers. The turning basin has been active with mackerel, jacks, ladyfish and other hungry fish chasing them. Look for trout around the bait schools on the grass flats. Top water lures or DOA shrimp work well this time of year. The trout bite has picked up lately with the bait schools around. Redfish can be found around docks and mangroves this time of year. Snook season opens in September and you can be sure that anglers will be targeting them! Make sure you check your licenses and snook permit. Watch for the mullet run to begin soon and that will have the area in a feeding frenzy as they will the river. It's a great time of year to enjoy fishing our area.

Work top water lures early or late in the day and switch to shallow running baits, like CAL jerk baits or Mirrolure mirrodine, to get your action during the day. The grass flats are productive this time of year. When fishing around the inlet for mackerel and other species, use small shiny lures for your best results. Don't forget to take the kids and grandkids out for an adventure soon! The next Treasure Coast Caster tournament is coming up soon. If your kids love to fish, contact Cammie Ward for information on a fun and exciting time for the kids. Contact Cammie at 772-201-5773 for more information on how to get your kids or grandkids involved.

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