South Indian River Fishing Report

Capt. Charlie Conner
September 1, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report


Looks like we are surrounded by tropical weather bringing rain and winds to the area. We dodged rain storms this week and even got wet on occasion. The rains and wind will continue for a while as these systems move through the state. Plan your outdoor activities carefully and watch the weather before you venture out. Fishing has been good in spite of what mother nature doles out.

Snook season opened with lots of rain to challenge anglers who wanted to get out the first few days of the season. Bridges and inlets are usually the hot spots for those wanting to catch a keeper snook. Our best bite this week has been snapper. Lots of keeper size fish have moved into the river and you can find them just about everywhere lately. Channel edges, bridges and docks are some of the favorite areas that snapper like to hang out. Most of our nice sized fish have come off the grass flats. Kevin and Bradley were out on a rainy morning and caught lots of snapper up to 14" while we dodges rains clouds. Bradley added a nice 22" trout to top off the morning. Jim, Patrick and Jimmy were out with me on another nice morning and found lots of snapper to start off the day. Patrick added a nice 22" tripletail to the mix and they topped off the day with three snook on the flats.

The fall mullet run is about to get into full swing along the Treasure Coast. As the schools of finger mullet arrive, so will the predators looking for an easy meal. Top water lures, DOA shrimp and live bait can find some nice fish hanging around the edges of the bait schools. Have fun!

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

Good fishing and be safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
