South Indian River Fishing Report

Capt. Charlie Conner
August 4, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report


August still brings hot weather, but it has also brought rain lately. Afternoon thunderstorms are the norm this time of year. The rain is much needed for the area with all the dry weather we have had this summer. Plan your outside adventures carefully and keep your eye on the radar as these storms can brew up quickly. Hot, humid conditions will continue this month.

The glass minnows have arrived on the Treasure Coast and that brings lots of hungry fish to gorge on them this time of year. Tarpon are around the area now and you can find them in lots of areas, like the beaches, inlets and deep channels. DOA Terror Eyz is a favorite artificial lure for tarpon. Top water and live baits will work as well. Bonito, mackerel and jacks are following the bait schools in with the incoming tides. Watch for the water to boil as these fish feed on the schools. Andrew and Barry hooked up on a dozen bonito this week along with a half dozen nice mackerel and a few jacks to top off a great morning.

Look for redfish to be hanging under the mangroves. You can find some snook there as well. Trout will be feeding in the shallow grass flats early or late in the day and moving to deeper water as the sun warms things up. DOA shrimp or CAL jerk baits are great choices for shallow water fishing. I love this month even though it's hot. There is lots of action this month both inshore and offshore, so get out and enjoy the fun!

Keep hydrated and use lots of sunscreen!

As always, remember that fishing isn't just another hobby.....it's an ADVENTURE!

Good fishing and be safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
