South end of the snapper hole

Capt. Mark Rosen

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

We went to the south end of the snapper hole in 80 feet of water. Seas were running 2 feet and we had great visibility. The sea water temp was 76 degrees and a gorgeous color of blue. The charter was able to hold bottom with 5 oz. of lead. We were using Penn 320 level winds reels on 112o ugly sticks with diamond braid. We caught 4 different types of snapper, Yellow tail, Vermilion, Gray (23"), and Lane. We also caught a lot of Trigger fish and a Cobia (34' 15.5pounds). We were using the Minkota trolling motor to electronically anchor us I put a live bait on top. We had a sail fish take it He quickly striped my 50 # braid off the real, I told everyone to get their lines up so we could chase him down but unfortunately he striped the reel before we could get all together. The sail jumped 4 times, they really are quit the sight and though the charter didn't get him to the boat they loved seeing such a magnificent fish. By the end of the day we had a nice collection of fish in the box including a nice 16" sea bass.
