Snapper hole bottom fishing

Capt. Mark Rosen

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took Joe & Regina Horner, out for a bottom fishing trip, it was Ragina's birthday. We left early to avoid the insanity at the boat ramp. Dave the bait guy was in the inlet selling bait so I stopped and bought a dozen. Then we headed north of the snapper hole. We were in 85 feet of water the sea temperature was 83 degrees and the water was as blue s it could be great visibility. The fishing gods were smiling on Regina, she caught a 38" dolphin and a 26" red grouper. As well as a 16" trigger fish she was high hook for the day. Joes caught a 30" dolphin as well as a large Bonita and a trigger fish. There were also lots of grunts and small sea bass caught. The dolphin and the Bonita were caught on live bait on the top with a float. We also caught a flying fish with live bait, I put the flying fish back out as live bait bit nothing hit it. The grouper hit a chicken rig when we got him to the boat he spit up lots of tiny 2" snappers we scooped them up and returned them to the water most didn't make it but a few did.
