Fishing continued to be productive again this week. Lots of action for anglers on the Treasure Coast. The weather has been pretty nice lately as we transition into the dry season. Less rain in the forecast and milder temperatures ahead. Expect much the same for the near future and have some fun out fishing soon!
I had the pleasure to volunteer for the Treasure Coast Casters October Tournament recently. I had Dylora Kohler on the boat this tournament. She had a super day fishing in pretty challenging conditions. She landed checked in with a redfish, trout and two mangrove snapper to take top honors in the High School division and biggest fish for the tournament. Michael and Gail were out with me on a beautiful morning to fish. They caught a variety of fish including six snook and lots of mangrove snapper. Ron was down to visit this week and went out to enjoy a morning of fishing. He caught redfish, snook and trout to start off the morning and ended up among a river full of feeding mackerel, ladyfish and jacks that we couldn't resist enjoying!
DOA shrimp continues to be our best artificial lure. The trout and snook have loved them. The 382 Holographic Glitter has been a super color on the flats this week. The trout have been on the grass flats in two to four feet of water along with lots of juvenile snook. Our redfish have been on the same flats and under the mangroves. Ladyfish and jacks are everywhere and willing to bend a rod if you enjoy them. Kids love it!
Fall is always a great time to enjoy the fishing along the Treasure Coast. Exciting action can be found on any given day on the water. The fish are feeding in preparation for winter. Top water lures are an exciting way to begin a morning and provide some exploding action. Winter will be here soon and that means cooler temperatures and windy days ahead. It's all fun though!
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
