South Indian River Fishing Report

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

South Indian River Fishing Report 1/19


It's been a mild winter so far and there is only a short time till spring arrives. We should get some cold nights ahead, but these mild conditions will prevail most days. Winds continue to blow daily with a couple calmer days each week. Water temperatures are in the mid to upper sixties and that helps the fishing.

The bite has been good for most species, but the winter fish have been very good for us lately. Mel, Matt, George, Roland and Rachel teamed up for a day fishing this past week. Rachel joined us mid-day while Mel cleaned fish for the guys. The caught a couple dozen croakers along with sheepshead, trout, whiting and more jacks than you could count to make for a wonderful day that everyone enjoyed. The Treasure Coast Casters had their January tournament last Sunday and I had Colt and Nicholas on the boat. The boys caught lots and lots of fish, but only Colt caught a keeper sheepshead to weigh in. They got into jacks and decided that they would rather catch them than try for the tournament fish. The guys had their own jack contest. The tournament results were: Colt Krischke - 2nd place Middle School - 15 points, Andrew Evans - 1st place High School - 30 points & Kaitlyn Ward 1st place Middle School - 65 points. Kaitlyn had the biggest fish of the tournament - 1lb. 11oz. sheepshead. If you have a kid or grandkid who loves to fish, contact Cammie Ward at 772-201-5773 to get them involved. Their web site is www.treasurecoastcasters.org or you can find them on Facebook.

The bite has been good for trout, sheepshead, drum and lots of other fish right now. Winter fishing is always fun and exciting for all ages, especially the young ones. It's a good time of year to get out and enjoy both the mild weather and great fishing!

Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!

Thanks and Good Fishing!
