INSHORE - Not a lot to report his week due to the windy conditions but, I did get a few repots of trout down around Bear Point and up around the Round Island area -- these are places you could get out of the wind. Most of the trout were caught on soft plastic baits like a D.O.A. shrimp fished slow in 3 to 5 feet of water. I also had good reports of snook in the Ft. Pierce Inlet and they were taking Red Tail Hawks on the tide changes. The local bridges are still holding some nice size black drum and snapper.Your best choice of baits is a small live shrimp.

OFFSHORE - Last weekend were the last reports I received -- again due to the weather sea conditions. The reports were pretty good for dolphin to 25 pounds and they were taking ballyhoo. The bite was in 70 to 200 feet of water. There was a very good sailfish bite to the south of the Ft. Pierce Inlet and it started in 100 feet of water. The sails were also taking ballyhoo. On Saturday I did have a 35 pound wahoo come into the docks and they said it was caught in 280 feet of water and also on a ballyhoo. The bottom fishing for snapper and grouper was also good when fishing over the reefs in 15 to 80 feet of water. On the deeper wrecks there was a good AJ bite.
