Reef Fishing

Capt. Mark Rosen
April 8, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took a group out to club reef, 6 .5 nautical miles SE of Fort Pierce inlet. I had 3 adults and an 8 year old. It was the first time the kid had fished the ocean. The conditions were marginal with the sea forecast at 3 to 4 foot seas but the sea buoy reading 2.5 foot. The day was nice a sunny there were a few white caps. The water temperature was 75 degrees the depth there was 58 feet. We started with a combination of cut grunt from a previous trip and cute squid. The first spot was fairly slow and after a few fish came in slowed down even more so I moved to another spot on the reef. The second spot had a lot of action on the bottom we started catching Lane snapper fairly regularly along with lots of grunts. We also caught a few trigger fish as well. We caught 1 nice sea bass just under legal so he was returned. We ended up hooking a few spinner sharks, the kid loved that. The kid was having a great time and caught the largest fish on the boat that day. There was a real nice King fish swimming around the boat. I put live bait in his zone he looked at it and turned away. I then tried a grunt filet with the same results. My next attempt was a frozen sardine still no luck we tried squid as well, we finally gave up and headed home
