Overall, fishing continues to be typical for the early summer months in Florida.
We headed out of the St. Lucie inlet on Father’s day hoping for some Mahi & Blackfin bites, but as usual, what you plan doesn’t always to your way!
We ended up trolling to 300′ with only 3 bonitas, raised a Sailfish, but couldn’t get him to eat.
After a few hours, decided to try to change things up a bit with live pilchards, which turned out to be the move to make. In just a short period, we had our limit of Kingfish, one peanut Mahi and a few more bonitas.
The bite was really active in 100′ to 180′.
The inshore fishing and beach fishing hasn’t disappointed either. From Fort Pierce to Hobe Sound the beaches have been packed with Glass Minnows, turning into a feeding frenzy for Snook and Tarpon.
The Fort Pierce inlet, depending on tides has been producing an amazing amount of Snook eating pilchards, as well as the typical Jacks, Blue Runners and a few Spanish Mackerel scattered in.
