South Indian River Fishing Report

Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

South Indian River Fishing Report 5/24


I guess when the rainy season arrives on the Treasure Coast...it really arrives! It's been raining for most of the past week and more ahead. I'll be mowing lots of grass soon. The water quality is down as the water drains into the rivers and it will take a while to clear up. Look for cleaner water when you get out on the river for your best opportunities. After a very dry winter, it's wet outside now.

Snook fishing has held up around the jetties, bridges and inlets for those using live baits like pilchards. Lots of snapper along the channel edges and many over the 10" size. Look for redfish hanging around docks and mangroves this month. DOA shrimp or live baits are good choices. Most of the trout have come from the grass flats north of Fort Pierce. Try live shrimp or the DOA Deadly Combo to find a trout bite. Spanish mackerel have been coming into the inlet with the tides.

Watch the weather this time of year and plan your adventures carefully. Lots of thunderstorms can pop up at any time and you don't want to get caught out in nasty weather. Don't forget your raingear! Fishing has been good in spite of wet conditions. Have fun and be safe out there.

As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!

Good Fishing and Be Safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
