Stuart Florida Fishing Heating Up

Capt. Bob Bushholz
May 7, 2011
Stuart - Saltwater Fishing Report


Fishing remains strong in the St. Lucie Inlet area. Catch and release snook along with black drum, flounder, jacks, pompano and assorted snapper top the list. We have also seen an increase in small permit to 5 pounds in the crossroads area. It's been windy the past few days but mainly out of the southeast making incoming tide the best time to fish this area. The sailfish flats is a great choice when the wind picks up. Plenty of leaping ladys along with two pound pompano mixed in. Capt. Joes pompano jigs bounced along the bottom are working well here. The dime bridge continues to hold some 3-7lb black drum and smaller croaker up near the structure. As a rule, this bridge is normally better fishing on the outgoing tide but lately both incoming and outgoing tides have been productive.

We did manage to catch the first tripletail of the season last week. Vail O'Conner down visiting the area caught a nice 13 pounder eating a live shrimp on a trollrite on a Sewell's Point dock. The fish took about ten minutes to land on ten pound test. Great fish and awesome dinner!!!
