Trigger fish at the snapper hole

Capt. Mark Rosen
April 27, 2017
Port St. Lucie - Saltwater Fishing Report

I took a charter out to the snapper hole yesterday. The s eas were 2 to 3 foot out of the north east. The first spot is 12 miles NE of Fort Pierce inlet. The reef is in 80 feet of water and comes up 10 feet. The water clarity was great with at least 30 foot of visibility. The sea surface temperature was 74 degrees. We were using cut squid for bait, once we boated some grunts we started using a combination of cute grunt and cut squid on triple hook chicken rigs made from 40 pound pink Andy liner and 3/0 hooks. The current was very light we were able to hold bottom with 4 and 5 once sinkers. The minkota trolling motor has no problem keeping us right on top of the fish. We made several moves through the day each spot was good for a few trigger fish a lot of grunts and a lot of vermilion snapper unfortunately all the snapper were short and had to be released. At one point one of the angle caught 3 fish at one shot on the chicken rig he caught a grunt, a trigger, and a snapper at the same time. By the end of the day we had a cooler full of trigger fish and headed home
