Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report
South Indian River Fishing Report 3/7
Lots of windy days this week and plenty more ahead as we start the breezy month of March. While it can be challenging,, we have still been able to get out and enjoy the fishing by using the winds and tides to our advantage. The water quality is still murky and dirty from the daily winds and run off. March is always a month of testing your fishing skills, but the rewards have been good to us through February and should continue. Plan your trips carefully.
Dan and Joe were out for the first time with me. They caught redfish and drum along with a nice tripletail to top off a good morning. Steve and Jim were out on a windy morning that found us catching a variety of species including sheepshead, drum, croakers and sand perch that made for a fun morning. Mike, JD and Logan fishing with me on another windy day. Another day of good fishing that included four redfish, snook, drum, sheepshead and other fish. JD topped of the day with a good battle with a 27" redfish that had a belly full of lures when we filleted it. Mike and Gary fished on yet another breezy day. They ended up with a couple reds, snook, sheepshead and croakers even though it was a slower bite that day. Al took Aaron, Don and Mark out for an adventure. Even though the weather was still blowing, the guys had a good morning fishing. Don topped off the day with a big tripletail after losing one earlier that morning. Duncan was back visiting and we found plenty of fish to bite, but not as many that were legal size for dinner. It's always good to see him each year. It was an other fun week on the water!
Most of our activity has come from under the docks. With the full moon here, it was work to find the bite some days. Be willing to move often and try different things this month. Weather will continue to be a factor and bring more chances of rain this month as we transition towards summer. Have fun and enjoy the fishing in March!
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
