Ft. Pierce Inshore - Offshore Report

Capt. Joe Ward
November 20, 2009
Fort Pierce - Saltwater Fishing Report

NOVEMBER 19, 2009

INSHORE - Good reports from the inshore anglers this week. We had a lot of action from the spanish mackerel, bluefish and jacks that are in the Ft. Pierce Inlet and around the local bridges. These fish have been taking just about any kind of bait however the best has been a 1/4oz. silver spoon. The bottom fishing remains steady for snapper, black drum, sheepshead and the croakers are starting to show up. All of these fish can be caught on a live shrimp. The snook fishing has also been good around the lighted docks in the Ft. Pierce Inlet. The top bait has a been finger mullet. And, I did have reports of some flounder showing up around the sand bars along the Inlet. Try using a live shrimp or a finger mullet.

OFFSHORE - The offshore conditions are still not the best for the smaller boats but, the bigger sport fishing boats are reporting some sailfish action starting in 100 feet of water. Most of the fish were caught on a ballyhoo. I also had reports of several nice wahoo in the 30 to 40 pound range and they were caught in 210 feet of water on a split tail mullet. Also, a few kingfish in 80 feet of water and I had a handful of cobia reported around the buoy's and wrecks.

TEEN ANGLERS - When we arrived at the Jaycee Park boat ramp this morning there was a very stiff breeze and a very high tide. All the Teen Anglers and their family members had to remove their shoes and roll up their pants legs and wade out to the finger piers. The good thing is that the wind did lay down some as the morning went on and it was a beautiful sunny day! We had a total of 14 Teen Anglers fishing and they caught a total of 17 fish.

In the Middle School Division
1st place - Dylora Kohler - Southern Oaks Middle - 3lb. 14oz. redfish
