November 2019

We use live shrimp on a 3/8 or ½ oz jig head dragging and bouncing along the bottom near the bridge’s channel fenders and [...]

October Forecast 2019

October can to be a transitional month for fishing spots and tactics as we enter the Fall. The mullet run should slowly die down in the river as they continue their migration South.  While there are still mullet in the river, it sometimes helps to use live shrimp because they are easier for fish to [...]

August 2019

The silver-side minnows and mullet are schooled up on the beaches with endless snook and tarpon, and jacks feeding on them. We mostly throw artificials when walking the beaches such as MirroLure Mirr-O-Minnows and  Yo-Zuri Crystal minnows, DOA Baitbusters and Jigs. For flies we throw Puglisi Ghost Minnows, Gummi Minnows, and clousers. The key is [...]

The “back country” fishing can be best this time of year, targeting fish in the North and South forks of the St. Lucie River. Most of our local snook move back there during these cooler months. We’ve also been [...]

The snook have moved further inshore back in the St. Lucie River where they hang around structure such as bridges, seawalls, docks, and mangroves.

Fishing Report & Forecast: July & August 2018

The summer fishing has been great and should remain steady through August with lots of bait in the river and along the coastline. Lots of juvenile tarpon can be found rolling back in the St. Lucie River 7-9am. Getting them to eat can be challenging, but we’ve hooked them on DOA TerrorEyz and shrimp. For [...]

Inshore, schools of pilchards can be found early morning near the bridges or along the beaches. Always be on the lookout for diving birds when looking for bait. Earlier the [...]
