River fishing

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

Due to the strong winds I we were forced to skip the reef trip yesterday and fish the river. The forecast was very accurate the winds were blowing out of the North, North east at least 20 MPH creating a 5 foot sea and churning the river up. We had outgoing tide so the wind and current were in same direction; we still had a 2 foot chop in the river. The river temperate was 65 degrees the clarity was extremely poor as it has been all winter with around two feet visibility. I found the fish in the 3 to 4 foot range. The drift was fairly fast at 1.5 to 1 .7 Knots. We were casting lures and we had live shrimp and frozen mullet dead sticking. The lure of choice was the reliable Mir-o-Lure 17 MR in yellow and the 17MR brown spotted. Spoons were also working. The charter landed a nice grouper on the first drift. We had lady fish biting most of the day. The live shrimp didn't produce a lot of hits but the frozen mullet got the largest sail catfish we've ever seen. We also caught few Jacks that were small and put them back as live bait but they didn't produce ether.
