South Indian River Fishing Report

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

South Indian River Fishing Report 3/9


Winds of March continued this week on the Treasure Coast. As we continue the transition into Spring, you can expect strong winds and rainy days part of the week and a few mild days as well. It's important to plan your adventures and use the winds to your advantage. Luckily, we have lots of places to get out of the worst of the winds to enjoy the fishing. Winter is almost over!

Fishing remains very good around the area. Snook have been biting around the inlet, turning basin and bridges most days for anglers. We have enjoyed a decent snook bite in the mornings on the trusty, root beer DOA TerrorEyz. Depending on where the winds allow you to fish comfortably, there have been sheepshead, pompano, mackerel, croakers and snapper to keep our guests busy catching fish. Throw in some jacks, ladyfish and other assorted species and your have a fun day on the water! The sheepshead have thinned out some as the breeding season wraps up for them, but the big croakers are coming into the river in nice numbers for their chance to spawn. I love this time of year with the variety of species to target. We might have to deal with the weather, but it's very rewarding!

Jerry and Lindy found the usual mix of species topped off by a nice pompano that they were hoping to catch again this year. Jerry started the day off with a nice snook that was an inch short of a slot fish. Bob, Dan and Mike were back for baseball in the area and the guys caught lots of fish in spite of 20 plus mph winds. Snapper, sheepshead, croakers, jacks and a number of other species kept us busy that blustery morning. Mike lost a nice snook to start the morning. Francis and Faith were back to visit again this year. The winds were better, but the rain was all around us. Croakers, sheepshead, jacks, mackerel and a variety of fish were available for them.

Enjoy the fishing and pay attention to the weather to plan your voyages. It's an awesome time to fish the Treasure Coast!

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

Thanks and Good Fishing!
Captain Charlie Conner
