Pompano and Mackerel bite is on in Stuart Florida

Stuart - Saltwater Fishing Report

Stuart Florida Fishing Report 2-20-2011

The water clarity has improved along the Treasure Coast. Last week on our Stuart Florida

Fishing Charter we had strong north winds for a few days stirring up the ocean and limiting

visability. With this cleaner water coming in the pompano action has picked up in several areas.

Around the Stuart Causeway has been the hottest on late incoming and the first couple of hours

of outgoing tides. Along with the pompano have been ladyfish, bluerunners and a few spanish

mackerel. Near Hell's Gate in the St. Lucie River some jacks, mackerel and pompano but the catch

has been on the slow side. Up a little further at the dime bridge we are still catching a few

black drum running 3-6 lbs close to the structure.

Sheephead and mangrove snapper are biting along Sailfish Point in the inlet. Trollrites

and shrimp along the bottom have worked best. Across on the south side of the inlet, a few snook

close to shore with a some undersized gag grouper and mangrove snapper mixed in. The ladyfish

seem to be here one day and gone the next.

Looking forward to running south to Peck's Lake in the next month or so for the spanish

mackerel bite.
