Tripletail Bite on Fire

Capt. Bob Bushholz
February 22, 2018
Stuart - Saltwater Fishing Report

Great tripletail fishing since the New Year with 39 landed, up to 22 pounds. We even caught 2 tagged tripletails - for which I called the University of Southern Mississippi who are in charge of the tagging program. The tagged fish were caught in Indian River and St. Lucie River.

The Spanish mackerel are back around Peck's Lake after heading south for a few weeks. We fish them a dozen times a year when seas are 2 foot or less. We're starting to see a few tarpon rolling up near the power plant.

Black drum, sheepshead and pompano are near the bridges with bonefish and ladyfish on the flats.

Snook are present in the inlet and St. Lucie River. Really, the only slow species has been the flounder. We did catch one last week, but it's been quite slow the last 6 months. Lack of glass minnows around is the problem.
