Windy conditions still prevail along the Treasure Coast most days. Mornings can give you a short break in the winds, but it will build as the day wears on. Plan your outdoor adventures carefully and enjoy the fishing this month. Fishing has been good and the water quality is slowly getting better with each tide in Fort Pierce. Less rain this month will help the water. Water temperatures will slowly cool down as the milder temps will transition into winter patterns soon. Enjoy the fishing this month!
Don, Art and Sherman were back this month for a fishing adventure. The guys caught a lot of fish that kept them busy. It was a mixed bag of fish for them. My family, Jack, Susan and Eva, was out with me on a beautiful morning with the sun coming out to brighten up the day. Croakers, jacks and snapper were the catch of the day. The big croakers are in the river. Our largest was 18" to top off the morning. There are also black drum coming into the river now. Great table fare for both and lots of fun to catch. Top water lures are working on trout and snook on the grass flats at first light. It's a great time of year to get out early! Switch to a DOA shrimp as the morning progresses. Look for redfish to be hanging around docks and mangroves. Snook around the jetties will be good this month as well. Gotta love November fishing!
Don't forget that the manatee zone in Fort Pierce from the north bridge to channel marker 189 below the south bridge will be in effect starting November 15th....so slow down to slow speed at that time. Have a safe November!
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
