Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took some members of the Port St Lucie Anglers club out fishing Friday. We headed out to an area short of the snapper hole in 60 feet of water. The sea water temperature was 82 degrees, with a medium chop. The Forecast said 2 to 3 foot seas with wind out of the east. The seas were mostly 3 feet. The water clarity was also very poor with less than 10 feet. There was a lot of bait in the area but a lot less then I saw there in previous trips. We used my minkota trolling motor to anchor us over a large piece of structure. I also used my chum deployment system to chum on the bottom. Using a Sebeka rig we were able to catch some sardines for live bait. We caught a bunch of yellow tail snapper but all were just short of legal. We caught a few nice chocolate chip porgies. Joe caught a very nice mutton snapper, measuring in at 22". We also caught some very large Lane snapper the biggest measuring at 17". I also caught and released a red snapper. We saw some large barracuda swim by the boat but they weren't interested in any of our bait. We tossed both live and dead baits but the barracudas just looked at it and turned away
