Ft. Pierce Inshore - No Offshore Report

Capt. Joe Ward
September 4, 2008
Fort Pierce - Saltwater Fishing Report


INSHORE - The inshore fishing is still on the slow side due to all the fresh water run off. I did get reports of a few trout and redfish coming from around the islands to the north of the North Bridge in places like Jack Island, Queen's Cove and Round Island. Most of the fish were caught on a live finger mullet. Even with all the dirty water there has been a few snapper and sheepshead being caught along the channel edges on a live shrimp. The opening week of snook season hasn't been that productive for most according to what the anglers are reporting. I did get a good report from Jesse Pfeiffer about the 7 snook he and his wife Leslie caught and released. The 1st two snook they caught were 26 & 26 &1/2 inches and they released them. Leslie caught one that was right at 32 inches and them Jesse got one that was 38 &1/2 which he released. He then caught one that was 31 & 1/2 inches. They each caught a couple more that were not in the slot. They were using pinfish for bait. I did get a couple of reports about snook in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. Most were caught during the 1st half hour of the out going tide and on a pinfish that was fished on the bottom.

OFFSHORE - I have no offshore report due to the sea conditions.

JUNIOR TEEN ANGLERS - The Treasure Coast Chapter of Junior Teen Anglers were supposed to kick off their 3rd season this Saturday - September 6th.
