Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

Finally was able to get a client out to the reef fishing. The forecast was good 2 to 3 foot seas. When we left Stan Blum ramp we had considerable fog, something we don't generally get here in Fla. I turned the radar on and set it for 2 mile range. It seemed we had between and of a mile visibility. Going through the inlet was fine we could easily see both jetties and all the relevant boat traffic. Once I broke the inlet the radar helped a lot we passed many small boats. I was able to see them at the 2 mile range long before we could actually see them, but knowing where and when I would see them made it easier to insure we were safe The sea temperature was 74 degrees water clarity was fair there was virtually no current. I tried to put out live bait on the top and the bottom but the top baits kept heading for the engine and the bottom bats wrapped around the other lines
. On the reef it was relatively slow, lots of grunts and some Lane snapper the largest was 16". We ended up with 11 lane snapper and a 49" barracuda. We also caught a large eel which was released
