Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took a father and his son out to an area near the snapper hole. The forecast was marginal but after analyzing the data from the weather buoy I determined the 3 to 4 foot seas were going to be a long period swells from a distant off shore storm. The moon was full and when we left in the morning (some say fishing isn't good on the full moon). When we got to the inlet I was correct there was a fairly rough surf but the inlet was fine and the ocean flat other than the large rollers I was able to run out at 24 knots. When we got to the spot here was large schools of bait fish though the water clarity wasn't real good sea surface temperature was 84 degrees. The charter started with bottom fishing as I manned a sebeka rod and started catching sardines. Once I had some live bait in the boat I put out a bait on top with a float and a live bait on the bottom. They were catching a nice mixture of grunts and lane snapper. The largest lane was 17" the live bait got attacked by barracuda we caught and released several. We also caught and released a short mutton snapper and caught a 16" yellow tail snapper.
