Fun with snook and trout

Capt. Ron Bielefeld
June 11, 2008
Indian River Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

The fishing over the past couple of weeks has been steady with a lot of snook and trout action early and late in the day. We have been catching a few redfish during the same time periods as well as during late mornings. It has been rather hot and steamy, but at least the winds have not been blowing too bad. Most of our action has been coming from very shallow grass flats on top-water and shallow diving plugs. The best top-water has been the Heddon Super Spook Jr. and the best shallow diver the Yo-Zuri 3D Fingerling. The silver mullet and clear minnow have been the best producing colors. There have been a lot of large snook hanging around the docks later in the morning on through the rest of the day, but getting to eat has been tough. However, persistence has paid off a few times. Warning, these fish have been very large and we have not been able to get them to the boat, so if you are going to try for these fish be sure to tackle up and get ready for an epic battle. Who knows maybe you will be luckier then we have been and land a fish of a lifetime. The beaches have been holding Spanish, Bonita, and some schools of tarpon. The tarpon have not been eating when we have found them, so we have not hooked up, but the other species have made for some fun trips. This weather pattern should hold for a while now, so the fishing should stay pretty consistent. Good luck and Tight-Lines to all.
