South Indian River Fishing Report

Capt. Charlie Conner
September 16, 2016
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report


The transition into fall weather patterns continues along the Treasure Coast. Lots of rain around the area with some windy days as well are the norm this time of year. The tropics have been pretty active and brings wet weather to us. Expect more of the same for the rest of the month.

The fall mullet run is going strong with lots of bait along the beaches and flooding into the river. Snook fishing will be very good this month around the inlets, bridges and fishing the bait schools along the beaches. Top water lures are an excellent choice this time of year around the bait. Try a DOA Bait Buster for some artificial action. On the flats, look for trout and snook when fishing the schools as well. Try the new DOA 2 3/4" shrimp on the grass flats for trout and redfish. Bear Point, Round Island and Queen's Cove have been good areas lately for flats action. Snapper fishing has been excellent lately around structure, bridges and docks. In the turning basin, look for jacks, mackerel and some bluefish moving in with the tides. Small shiny lures or jigs work great on these fish.

Fall is always an exciting time to enjoy the fishing along the Treasure Coast. Watch the weather, use plenty of sunscreen and keep hydrated. Have fun the next several months!

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

Good fishing and be safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
