South Indian River Fishing Report

Capt. Charlie Conner
August 24, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report


It certainly has been a wet week for the Treasure Coast. It was a challenge some days to get out and beat the storms. Looks like that will be the norm this week again. Plan your adventures carefully and check the weather before you get out. It's still hot as August always promises and will be that way for a while.

With some low tides, the best bite has been around the inlet and turning basin. Bonito, mackerel, jacks and ladyfish are following the glass minnow schools in with the tides and it's been crazy. You can bet there are sharks around as well. Bob and Lisa were down from Pennsylvania and caught a variety of fish to make for a fun morning on the water. I enjoy this month with all different fish that you can catch.

The snook bite has been good at night and early mornings. Top water, DOA Bait Busters and live bait can get you a good bite. There have been quite a few tarpon coming in with the tides. First light is a good time to try for one. Try the mangroves for a chance at a redfish or try a top water lure on the grass flats in early morning. It's great living on the Treasure Coast!

Keep hydrated and use plenty of sunscreen this time of year. The heat can sneak up on you and knock you for a loop!

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

Good fishing and be safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
