South Indian River Fishing Report 10/20
Another week of high, dirty water around the area as a result of Hurricane Matthew. Docks are gradually being repaired, but there is still debris floating around the river. With the water being dirty, be careful when running and watch out for floating things. The water is slowly getting back to normal, but expect ramps to be challenging at high tide for now. The water has cooled off and there are still mullet schools around to fish. Have fun and be safe out there!
Night fishing around the jetties has been good for snook and redfish lately. Top water, DOA Bait Busters or live bait have all been good to use. Around the area, look for trout on the grass flats, redfish around the mangroves and docks along with snook and snapper. I have Amie Glancy out on a windy day that made it a challenge. Amie caught a variety of fish and ended the morning with a big jack to give her a good battle. It was nice to see Amie again. It was a fun morning!
I've continued to battle melanoma lately. Four surgeries and lots of stitches since May has not been fun! Make sure you are protecting yourself from the sun. The damage you do when you are young can haunt you later in life! Hopefully I am done with this for a while and can get back to normal again.
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
