Negro cut hot spot

Capt. Steve Poland

Fort Pierce - Saltwater Fishing Report

Weekend of April 26th & 27th.
Saturday we started out fishing Bear Point area, and caught one lady fish and 1 24" Snook on Zara spooks.From there we traveled north to the Negro cut area. This spot only yielded several small trout.

As for Sunday it was a whole lot better.I had the rare opportunity of taking my friend Mark Hooven and his daughter Hunter whom brought her friend Steven. We started out in the Negro cut area. Throwing live shrimp to trout & snook, but with no takers. Since there was no wind the only thing biting was mosquitos!So, we relocated to the Harbor Branch area.

There we managed to catch a few small trout on a bobber & love shrimp. After an hour or so we decided to go back to the negro cut area.Which by then the mosquitos were'nt biting but the fish were. The next couple of hours we managed to go thru 5 dozen shrimp. By 10:20 a.m., we had 5 sheepshead,1-15" snapper, & a 24" Redfish!!!

All of these fish wer caught by sight fishing with live shrimp.This day had an interesting twist!Around 9:00, I spotted the redfish way in the back of some over hanging mangroves.I pitched my shrimp to the awaiting redfish.At which point the redfish engulfed my shrimp & high-tailed it back to the mangroves. After a few minutes and hoping my line would'nt break, due to the fact it was draped over a branch,I heard a GIANT SPLASH. And low and behold there was Msrk swimming in the mangrove branches to retrieve my Redfish!!!!!!!

Until next week....Good Luck & see ya out there!!

More Fishing Reports:


Fishing in south florida since 1984. It mainly started out as bass fishing for fun then it got competitive. I took my fishing to the next level by competing in local tournaments which eventually turned into competing on a more professional level. After 10 years at that level i turned my attention to competing in professional saltwater tournaments such as the IFA, and FLW tours. During that time is when i decided to get my captains license and start to give back to my local community.
