What a fantastic week of warm, sunny weather around the Treasure Coast this week. Not much wind to deal with has allowed us to fish all around the river and most days found the fish in the mood to eat. You can expect the winds to pick back up, but enjoying that break was outstanding!
We spent this past week fishing south of Fort Pierce on both sides of the river. Bob, Tony and Mark were back this year for another adventure on the river. It was a variety of redfish, trout, sheephead, jacks, pompano and snapper to keep the guys busy reeling in fish that day. Ron and Don were out the next day for trout, sheephead, jacks and pompano for their day on the water. Doug and Tony caught 12 redfish among some trout, jacks and a nice pompano. Joe, Anthony and Tom had another variety of redfish, trout, sheephead, jacks, grouper and snapper.
To finish off the week, I volunteered for the Teen Anglers tournament and had Chad and Max on the boat. Chad checked in a couple trout, a mackerel and a snapper for his catch and won third place in middle school. Max missed a couple keepers, but ended up with a bonnet head shark to keep his rod bent for a while. We had a fun day and caught a lot of fish around the river.
DOA shrimp, CAL jerk baits, Deadly Combos and live shrimp have all worked great out on the river this week. Most of our fish have been hanging in the sand holes on the shallow flats. The water continues to warm up and the fish have been feeding. It's a great time to fish the Indian River!
