South Indian River Fishing Report 1/28

Winter weather has been hanging around the Treasure Coast lately.  Temperatures in the 40's and 50's at night have cooled down the water recently, but daytime temps ranged in the 60's and 70's.  The water has ranged from 59 to 68 degrees, but the fish have continued to bite for us.  Winds have been blowing most days for us and that makes for a challenging day on the water!

We continue to catch redfish, black drum and sheepshead each trip with a few trout in the mix.  You can also find some pompano, Spanish mackerel and a host of other fish to catch.  Fishing deeper water has been good for us, while docks and mangroves continue to be productive.  DOA shrimp has been the best artificial lure for us.  Live shrimp will find plenty of sheepshead this time of year.  Doc's Goofy Jigs are great when looking for pompano.  I enjoy this time of year because of the variety of fish to be caught by anglers.  It's a fun time of year to enjoy the fishing along the Treasure Coast.

Kevin and Chris had a good morning in spite of windy conditions.  The landed five redfish along with black drum and sheepshead.  Travis, James and Tyler had a nice morning.  The guys caught sheepshead, jacks, snook and lots of other fish.  Art, Ted and Chris found a good variety of fish, including mackerel, snapper, flounder and sheepshead.  Steve and Pete caught the usual sheepshead, snapper and other species.  Gloria and John also found a variety of fish on a windy day full of challenges.  Gloria topped off the morning with a 29" redfish.  Mike and Melinda had a good day in spite of another windy morning.  It was a good week fishing with a lot of windy challenging days for us.

There are plenty of places to fish this time of year on windy days.  Watch water temperatures and change your tactics when it is cooler water.  Deeper channel edges and drop offs can be productive on cool days.  Deeper docks will generally hold fish as well.  On bright sunny days, look to the grass flats to hold fish soaking up the sunshine.  Winter always presents a number of challenges for anglers, but you can be successful if you watch conditions and use them to your advantage.

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

Thanks and Good Fishing!

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!
