Treasure Coast Fish Report

TREASURE COAST FISHING REPORT

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY

Jeanne Middleton of Middleton’s Fish Camp at Blue Cypress Lake said fishing has picked up this week. Beau Gay and family worked hard to end up with 17 specks, most of which were large. Bass fishermen are giving up artificials and going to shiners. “Few big bass caught, but they are fanning around the trees and in the grass,” she wrote. “Lots of shellcrackers and catfish. Even ran out of worms, which is surprising. Nature is doing strange things this year.”

ST. LUCIE COUNTY

Capt. Dave Berard, one of the area’s most respected sailfish skippers, was fishing offshore Wednesday during a tune-up for the start of Thursday’s Palm Beach Double Shot sailfish tournament. On a short day, his anglers went 1-for-1 on sailfish and several other boats nearby, like Bone Shaker and Sea Check, had similar numbers. Berard said there were numerous free-jumpers, but eaters were few. He believes the swing of winds from west to north and northeast will improve action.

MARTIN COUNTY

Capt. Bob Bushholz of Catch 22 charters out of Four Fish Marina in Jensen Beach reported on the Florida Sportsman Southeast Forum that fishing has been steady in the Indian River Lagoon. Just south of Stuart Causeway the pompano bite is improving with cleaner, cooler water. Best of it is last hour of incoming to second hour of outgoing tides when cleaner water reaches the bridge. Black drum, mangrove snapper, flounder, sheepshead, small Goliaths and a few snook, too.

LAKE OKEECHOBEE

Bass fishing has been very good for most anglers and better for those who are putting in their time or fishing with wild shiners. Bigger fish are slamming the shiners, but if that is not one’s cup of tea, break out the favorite artificial lure and patiently work it around to find where the action is. With a new moon approaching Monday, expect flipping and pitching to beds along the edges to be productive for pre-spawn bass. The wind change may help that as well.
