Inshore: Rain has dominated the weather forecast for some time now and it is likely to continue for a while longer. We have been fortunate to dodge rain clouds lately and miss getting drenched. September was a quiet month this year for hurricanes. I'll deal with the rain showers in lieu of a storm! As the dry season approaches, we can only hope that the draining from Lake Okeechobee will stop filling the Saint Lucie River with polluted waters. Gary, Honey, Susan and 8 year old, Alana, was out with me after a few weeks of delaying the trip because of rain. The trout bite was slow that morning, but Alana topped off the day by catching a nice slot redfish from under the mangroves. Susan had a battle with a bonnet head shark! We had a fun morning that ended up dodging another rain storm. David and Jane were out on a beautiful morning and found trout in several areas willing to hit a DOA Deadly Combo. Dave ended up our morning hooking up on a nice redfish that ended up breaking him off under the mangroves. It's been a nice variety of fish to enjoy. Deadly Combos continue to produce some nice trout for us. Work them aggressively and you will catch fish! Snook fishing along the jetties has been productive for night anglers. Snook and tarpon can be found there and along the surf chasing bait schools. Try a DOA Bait Buster along the beach. Our redfish have been hanging under the mangroves as always. It's been a challenge getting under the mangroves with the higher tides lately, but you can find success under those tree branches. The tides will return to normal soon enough. Snapper can be found around docks, structure and channel edges. Look for some pompano to be showing up soon to the area as well at the winter bluefish bite. As winter approaches, water temperatures will slowly cool off. We enjoy the privilege of being able to fish year round and need to adjust to different conditions as they happen. Cooler water will change your tactics for tackle and species as winter gives us new challenges to enjoy. Have fun and enjoy the fishing on the Treasure Coast! As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!

Inshore: Rainy weather has drenched the Treasure Coast lately and it appears that it will continue for a while. The St. Lucie River has been flooded with run off and Lake Okeechobee drainage and it isn't good for the fragile ecosystem in the area. Taylor Creek is flooding water into the Indian River in Fort Pierce as well. It's been difficult to find clean water to fish. Until the dry season arrives, we will continue to be challenged with too much fresh water in the river. We have found decent water to the south of Fort Pierce on the incoming tides. I had my grandkids, Chloe and Brody, out with me recently along with dad, Rick. We found good water south of Fort Pierce and the kids had a super time catching lots of fish and even enough for dinner. They caught trout, snapper and even a mackerel. Brody was proud that he caught twenty fish that day. Eric and Hillary was out on another challenging day of weather. The bite ended up being slow, but we did manage a nice redfish that morning along with a variety of fish. I helped with the Michael Shields Memorial Tournament again this year. It was a fantastic event as always. I had Charlie, Bob and Lonnie on the boat for the tournament. After a slow start to the day, the guys ended up boating three nice redfish. We had a fun day on the water. Trout have been hitting DOA Deadly Combos, DOA shrimp and live baits. Don't forget to use top water lures at first light on the flats. Look for clean water and bait and you should find the trout. Our redfish have been hanging under the mangroves and most are slot fish. Try DOA shrimp, live or cut bait for redfish. Snook have been around the inlets and along the beaches feeding on the finger mullet. You can find tarpon in the same areas where the bait schools are running. Top water, DOA Bait Busters or Terror Eyz are great choices for fishing these areas. There are still lots of snapper in the river around bridges, docks and channel edges. Some flounder around the jetties this week and lots of jacks and ladyfish in the area. Fall is always a great time to enjoy the fishing on the Treasure Coast! As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
