The snapper hole continues to be the spot

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I had one day with good weather this week and had a 4 person charter ready to fish 2 couples neither wife ever fished before. We headed out to the snapper hole seas were less than 2 feet and with an 8 second period. The water out there was clear and great visibility. I had 75 degree surface temperature. I deployed my minkota trolling motor and set them up first fish was on before the second line even hit the water. The current was running unusually strong for the area so we ended up using 6 and 8 ounces to hold bottom. I hit 6 spots out there throughout the day it was slow but steady pick of snapper and trigger fish with a lot of grunts thrown in. We were using cut squid for bait as we put grunts in the boat we mixed in cut grunt along with the squid. We were using triple hook chicken rigs made of 40 pound pink Andy and 50 pound braided line. There were a lot of short trigger fish as well. By the end of the day we had 22 Lane snapper in the box with the biggest hitting 16" and a 13' vermilion snapper a nice size white bone porgy and 4 triggerfish over 14".
