snapper hole

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took a friend and his son out to the reef yesterday The seas were much flatter then the forecast indicated. Fortunately the weather buoy is back, and let us know exactly what was out there. I started at the close reef I've been fishing, we had a south current, after hitting 4 spots and marking fish but nothing hitting I decided we needed to run out to the snapper hole. Any time you find yourself with a current running south instead of north you are on the back side of an eddie, the fish generally don't feed since it is not natural to them if you are near shore move off shore if your off shore move ether further off or on shore it might take several miles distance to get out away from the reverse current. When we got to the snapper hole the first fish hooked up was a spinner shark(not a good sign) luckily that was the only spinner shark we caught. We ended up with 2 triggers in the box and several released, 14 lane snapper, a bunch of vermilion snappers all released and lots of grunts. We had a live line on top with a greeny and watched a large shark take it. I had it rigged with a steel leader hook but the shark finally bit of any way
