South Indian River Fishing Report 12/24
As 2016 comes to a close, I would like to thank everyone for reading my reports for the past 15 years. It's been 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 2017 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! Winds have been a challenge most days, but there is always somewhere you can fish. 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 mild 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!
We had another fun week on the water with the fish biting well for us. Rick and Rob were out again with me and they caught lots and lots of sheepshead, drum and other species. Wayne and Cody found some big sheepshead to take home. Wayne landed one of a number of redfish around the docks. We were broken off numerous times by nice size reds. Tom and Ryan found plenty of sheepshead and jacks and added a couple nice mackerel to top off the morning. It's a wonderful time of year to enjoy the fishing.
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Good Fishing and Be Safe!
