January weather has continued to be kind to us....at least on most days.  We deal with the regular cold fronts, winds and rainy days on a regular basis, but we have been able to enjoy the fishing on the Treasure Coast.  Windy days will find us fishing along the mangroves around the river, while calmer days we will be hitting docks and grass flats as well.  Water temperatures have ranged in the mid to upper sixties recently and that will keep the fish feeding for us.  It won't be long before Spring arrives!

 

Redfish, black drum and sheepshead have been the best bite again this week.  Whether fishing mangroves, docks or structure, we have continued to be successful each day on these species.  DOA shrimp and live baits will find some nice size fish this time of year.  You can also find juvenile snook and snapper around the mangroves.  The best bite has been when the water temps have ranged in the upper 60 degrees.  Around the inlet and turning basin, look for mackerel, bluefish and a host of other species this month.  Small shiny lures will work best in these areas.  There are plenty of ladyfish and jacks for those who just want to bend a rod.  They are a favorite of the kids in January.  We have been getting some trout on the grass flats on the warmer days on Deadly Combos.  Most have been slot size trout.  Have fun this month and enjoy the fishing along the Treasure Coast!

 

Don, Art and Sherman were back again this month to enjoy a morning on the river.  The guys caught trout, snapper, black drum and sheepshead to make for a fun day on the water.  Bob, Jim and Thomas found lots of fish including black drum, sheepshead, jacks and ladyfish to name a few of the many species they caught.  Steve and Nick were back again this year for another fishing adventure.  They caught redfish, drum, sheepshead and a nice pompano to round out a nice, rewarding trip on the Indian River.  Mark was down for a visit and we got out on a cool morning.  The water temperatures had dropped ten degrees in one day, so we scouted a good bit to find the fish, but had a great time fishing!

 

We will have our ups and downs with the temperatures this month.  Dress in layers to be comfortable in January.  Keep your rain gear handy for rainy days.  It's been a damp month so far and we will most likely see more of the same weather conditions.  Check the weather before you head out and be prepared to have some fun!

 

Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!

 

Thanks and Good Fishing!

Inshore:

 

January has been kind to us so far this month.  Last year the weather was horrible, but 2015 has been mild for the Treasure Coast.  We have had some rainy days, but we have been able to fish despite of the rains.  Look for some cold fronts moving through each week in January and adjust your fishing to the challenges.  The water temperatures have been around 70 degrees lately and that will go up or down with the cold fronts.  The fishing has been wonderful!

 

Redfish, black drum and sheepshead have been our best bites most days.  DOA shrimp, CAL paddle tails and live bait can find you some exciting action this month around the area.  Fishing docks, mangroves and structure around the river has rewarded my anglers with some nice fish for their efforts.  Ron, Jessie and Jeremy topped off this weeks fishing by boating 10 slot size black drum and a redfish along with lots of other species.  Larry and Charlie also had a great morning by catching black drum, redfish and sheepshead.  Tom, Sherry, Andrew and Trevor had the same success on their morning adventure.  Jeff, Ryan and Kyle had a rainy, windy day on the water, but caught some nice fish in spite of conditions.  It was a fun week on the water!

 

Pompano have been moving around the river and will improve with cooler water.  Mackerel will be coming into the inlets and provide both fun and food for anglers.  Bluefish are in the inlets now as well.  Water temperatures will fluctuate this month and you should keep an eye on it.  Incoming tides will bring warmer water into the river and that can turn on the bite in areas.  My magic number has always been 68 degrees.  I fish deeper water as temperatures cool down and move onto the shallow water late in the mornings as the sun does its magic on temperatures.  It's both fun and challenging this time of year!
