As 2014 comes to a close, I would like to thank everyone for reading my reports for the past 13 years. It's fun and I certainly enjoy doing them. I have met many old friends again this past year and made many new ones as well. Here's hoping that 2015 will be a bountiful year for everyone and the fishing continues to reward anglers throughout the Treasure Coast. I am truly blessed with the people around me in so many capacities. Thank you all! Eva and I wish everyone a blessed Holiday Season this year.
The weather this week has been fantastic! Warmer temperatures and sunny skies make for a wonderful adventure on the water! Water temperatures have been around 70 degrees this week and that means the fish are feeding before the next cold front arrives. Enjoy this weather...it could change soon! It's been a fun week on the water.
Fishing has been very good out there and it should continue this way with the warmer water temps. Docks, mangroves, grass flats and channel edges have all been productive for us. I love this time of year! A large variety of species are out there to keep your rods bending. Trout on the grass flats. Redfish under the docks and mangroves. Sheepshead and black drum around structure. Mackerel feeding on the beaches and inlets. Jacks and ladyfish....everywhere! It's a great time of year!
Jim, Chris and Dienne had a super morning adventure. Redfish, snapper, sheepshead and many other species were on the list that morning. They landed three out of five redfish to top off the morning. Don, Mike, Sammy and Lexi had an exciting morning with a variety of species including snapper and sheepshead. The girls had a fun time with Grandpa and Dad! Rich and Mike also had a good morning. They found some big fish under the docks and were broken off numerous times, but landed lots of fish that day as well. The trout were biting on the flats to add to the mix that morning. It has been a fun month on the water!
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Good Fishing and Be Safe!
