Some much needed rain has been hanging around the Treasure Coast this week and it has made it a challenge some days to get out fishing. Overall, the weather has been good and warm for us and we have had lots of success this month. Expect those afternoon showers to continue with a chance at a thunderstorm in the mix. It's the rainy season! Have fun and be safe on the water.
Redfish has been out best bite recently along with a good snook bite. We have found some nice oversize reds up to 32" lately. Oscar and Leanne caught two slot reds along with snook, snapper, sheepshead and a shark to make for a fun day on the water. John and Eric also caught a couple nice reds along with snook and snapper on their morning trip. Jim, Eric and Curt landed four reds with three of them oversize. They also got broke off by two big snook that were in the slot zone. I had the privilege of attending the DOA/River Palms Outdoor Writers Event again this year. I had Shane and Ben on the boat for a morning of fishing. The guys landed three reds and two snook along with a few other species. Ben had a nice trout spit the lure as well. DOA Lures catch fish! CAL jerk baits and shad tails worked for us on the mangroves and grass flats. It's always a great time!
Summer fishing is fantastic on the Treasure Coast. Watch the weather and get out early for some exciting top water action. During the heat of the day, try mangroves, docks and bridges. Deep sand holes and drop offs can hold fish at mid-day. The outgoing tides have worked best for us this month, but as long as the water is moving, you can catch fish. June is always a good month to enjoy the fishing in our area.
Remember, as always, fishing is not just another hobby……it’s an ADVENTURE!
