INSHORE - Everything should start to heat up in June including the weather. The best inshore action should be from first light until about 9am and from 6pm until dark. During these hours try a top water bait like a Zara Spook, Chug Bug and for the anglers that like to throw soft plastic baits try a D.O.A. Bait Buster. For the rest of you that like live bait try a pigfish, mullet, shrimp or a crab. This method will catch a snook, trout, redfish and lots of big jacks. Try places like Harbor Branch, Round Island or Queen's Cove to the north and to the south you can try Bear Point, Herman's Bay or the docks along South Indian River Drive. Just remember that as of June 1st snook season is closed and is catch and release only. The snapper fishing should also be good around the bridges and the channel edges. A live shrimp fished on a #2 hook, a 20# fluorocarbon leader and a 1/2 to 1oz. lead should work just fine. The tarpon should be here in full force in the Ft. Pierce Inlet, the Moorings and around the Big Mud Creek area. Try using a live mullet.

OFFSHORE - The dolphin are here and are in 60 to 180 feet of water. Just depends on the wind direction. Most of these fish have been caught on ballyhoo but a few were caught on live baits. There has been quite a few cobia in 60 feet of water and the have been taking either a Cobia Slayer by Gulfstream Lures or a live bait. Only a few wahoo have come into the docks and they were in 220 feet of water. The kings have been on 40 to 60 feet of water and they have also been taking live baits. The bottom fishing for snapper and grouper has been good in 40 to 60 feet of water. These fish will take a live bait or a piece of cut bait. Along the beaches you will find plenty of blues, spanish, jacks and sharks to keep you busy.

JACKSON LAKE IS FULL, CLEAR & MID 50’S

Bass fishing is slow and the lake is holding steady. With any current that will be generated use the Shad Raps on the back sides of the points will be the most productive. The areas to fish will be off the large channels and the main part of the lake south. Rattle Finesse Worms and Shad Raps along with Rapala DT10 crank baits would be the only baits to use to catch some monster bass during this time.

JACKSON LAKE IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 60’S

Bass fishing is fair for both the largemouth and spots and the lake continues to drop. The bass are holding tight to all the stumps that are located on the channel ledges. Use the #5 Rapala Shad Raps and the Rapala DT10 and make long cast and crank them down slow and hope they bump into one of these stumps. When this happens, stop reeling the bait for a two count and start back reeling again. This stop and go action will draw a strike when all else fails. Always have a jig tied on any time you go to any other lake. This is the money bait for most anglers year round. Black and greens are the best combinations. Keep a spoon ready and any bait schools around in the backs of the coves can have bass close by. Drop a spoon to the bottom and the fish can fire up really fast.
