Bottom fishing at the snapper hole

Capt. Mark Rosen

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took 3 anglers out to the snapper hole on Friday. We broke the inlet at 8:00 Am and headed north east. The marine forecast couldn't have been more wrong they predicted the seas would be flat in the morning and building in the early afternoon. We departed with a solid 2 to 3 foot sea with the majority being 3 feet. I thought we were in for quiet the day but by 10 am it started to lie down and by 11 am was like glass. The water clarity was good sea temperature was 72 degrees. We caught a lot of trigger fish we brought home 10 real nice ones and released 15 fish that were over 14" along with many undersize ones. We caught some snappers as well yellow tail, lane, and vermilion. We also caught a real nice white boned porgy. We started with cut squid for bait, until we caught some grunts. We then started using pieces of grunt filet cut in small pieces . I was using a triple hook chicken rig with 3.0 hooks and 50 pound Andy pink line the other three chose a single hook rig made with flora carbon leader. We also tried some gulp shrimp , which got hit but the fish didn't get hooked up they just bit it off short of the hook.
