Ft. Pierce Inshore - Offshore Report

Capt. Joe Ward
October 23, 2008
Fort Pierce - Saltwater Fishing Report

OCTOBER 23, 2008

INSHORE - The inshore fishing had just started to improve on Tuesday even with the wind blowing and the dirty water. The best trout bite is still to the south from around Bear Point down to Herman's Bay. Try a soft plastic bait in a dark color and fish in 2 to 3 feet of water. As far as the redfish go the only reports I got this week were about the area around Round Island down to Harbor Branch. Find the schools of baits and you will find the fish. Also, in the mix will be small snook, ladyfish and jacks. The only snook reports I got were about the snook around the docks in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. A live bait like a pinfish or a mullet fished on the out going tide at night has been the way to go. From the angers who have been fishing the catwalks of the South Bridge the reports are of snapper, sheepshead, black drum, sand perch and a few croakers. Most of these fish were caught on a live shrimp.

OFFSHORE - With the sea conditions still not that good -- the bigger boats have been reporting good catches of dolphin and sailfish when they were fishing to the north of the Ft. Pierce Inlet. Start fishing in about 100 feet of water and move out. A ballyhoo or a mullet have been working well. Not much else to report except for all the usual bait stealers -- jacks, cuda's and sharks.

TEEN ANGLERS - The regular monthly inshore tournament for the local chapter of Teen Anglers was rescheduled from last Sunday -- Oct. 19th until Sunday -- November 2nd. With NE winds at 25 mph and a small craft advisory the tournament had to be rescheduled. Teen Anglers is for the 12 to 18 age group.

JUNOR TEEN ANGLERS - The next from shore fishing tournament for the Junior Teen Anglers will be held on Saturday -- November 1st at 9am at Harbour Pointe Park in Ft. Pierce. We will fish until 11am then award trophies. Junior Teen Anglers is for the 5 to 11 age group. For more info on Junior Teen Anglers & Teen Anglers just go to the web at www.teenanglers.org
