Bottom fishing out of Fort Pierce Inlet

Capt. Mark Rosen
March 6, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took three anglers on a charter back to the snapper hole on Saturday. Based on the previous day I suspected the forecast was wrong again. They were calling for 10 Knot winds and 3 to 4 foot seas, higher then I usually fish. I looked at the weather sea buoy off Fort Pierce and it said 2.3 feet average wave steepness with a 10 knot wind the 3 to 4 feet seas didn't add up so we took a chance. The seas were running out of the North east and were 2 to 3 feet with the majority at the 3 foot mark and were fairly close together With was better than the 10 Knots they predicted . But it was fishable. I slowed the boat to 15 knots and we made our way out there. By the time we got to the snapper hole the winds already had died down to the mid 2 feet range. By 11 am the seas were virtually flat. We were using 6 ounces to hold bottom. I used my Minkota I-Pilot to anchor the boat electronically the first fish caught was a small Gag Grouper which we released. We had a few really nice size trigger fish we released. We caught several snapper including a lane snapper that measured 17.5 inches several other lanes measuring in at 12". We also caught several small mutton snappers and along with 16" mutton we released. We also caught and released a cobia that measured 23"
