This week has been extremely nice with highs in the upper 70's and the water has been calm in the lagoon and seas 3-5ft, the fish have been biting well with the approach of the cold front boats coming in with a vast mix of good catches. The front will come thru Saturday and Sunday should produce some good offshore fishing. See you Saturday night at the Ft Pierce Boat Parade…
Boating Forecast : North West 15-20 knots seas 4 to 6 ft
Reports:Inshore - Trout and redfish have been active around St Lucie Village on shrimp at daylight and topwater plugs have been exciting just as the sun comes up ( makes your hair stand up if your not ready) The snapper are along the channel edges fishing chicken rigs with shrimp, the snook have been on the large side fishing the inlet on incoming tide around Dockside and Manatee. Spanish Macks and blues are attacking schools at first light and are loving a silver or gold spoon.We saw some large pompano this week caught by Harbor Branch on the edges of the channel.
