Ft. Pierce Inshore - Offshore Report

Capt. Joe Ward
October 16, 2008
Fort Pierce - Saltwater Fishing Report

October 16, 2008

INSHORE - There is not a lot to report this week between the strong NE winds and all the dirty water from the fresh water runoff. Just about the only anglers that have been out this week are the die hard anglers that fish no matter what. Most of the other anglers stayed close to home and tried to catch up on the honey do list. Reports from the anglers that did fish were that they launched at Round Island which is a good place to fish around the spoil islands and stay out of the wind. The reported included scattered trout, small snook, ladyfish and all the jacks you could catch. Most of these fish were caught on live baits. The snook action has been steady around the docks in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. Try fishing a live mullet or a pinfish on the tide changes. I am still getting a few reports about the snook up in Taylor Creek. Most of the fish were caught on a live bait like a mullet and several were over the slot.

OFFSHORE - The only offshore reports I have are from last weekend when the sea conditions were a lot better. We had dolphin from 8 to 20 pounds come into the docks and they were caught in 150 to 300 feet of water on a ballyhoo. Several anglers brought back some kingfish that were caught in 70 to 80 feet of water and were caught on a live bait. We did have several sailfish reported in 100 feet of water and they were taking a naked ballyhoo. We have several tripletail from 6 to 15 pounds come into the docks and they were caught at the cans just outside the Ft. Pierce Inlet on a live shrimp and a trol-rite hook. As for this week it has been pretty much a blow out with the NE winds from 15 to 30 mph and the seas have been 6 to 8 feet.
