Bottom fishing 60 feet of water

Capt. Mark Rosen
November 27, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I had a charter on the only day with a remotely fair marine forecast, 2 to 3 foot seas 5 to 10 east winds. The winds were closer to 15 knots out of the east, seas were mostly 3 feet. Sea temperature was 75 degrees on the reef, visibility was around 30 feet. We were fishing in 60 feet of water about 6.5 miles out of Fort Pierce. The fishing was steady all day, though we did move 5 times to different pieces of structure out there. Its days like this where you're moving from one part of the reef to another that makes the I-pilot trolling motor indispensable. It is so nice not having to pick up and drop an anchor each time. The spots on this reef are also fairly small and difficult to set up on with a traditional anchor. We brought home 17 lane snapper the largest was 18" toward the end of the day we were releases several that were less than 12" We caught a blue runner and put it out as live bait, it wasn't in the water 2 min when it got his but the fish bit just short of the hook. We were using cut squid, cut grunts, and cut sardines for bait. There was very little current we were able to hold bottom with 4 OZ.
