South Indian River Fishing Report
By Capt. Charlie Conner
Reported on: November 10, 2006

.....The answer is blowin' in the wind.....Good line for a song huh?? That's the way most of this past week has run here on the Treasure Coast. Lots of wind to keep most of the anglers off the water and the fishing slowed down. Looks like it has passed on through and we can look forward to great weather for the coming weekend. I got a feeling that there will be lots of boaters out come Saturday morning!

The trout bite was good right before this last front moved through and it should pick right back up as the water clears up. I was out today and it wasn't as dirty as expected. Lots of fish are still hanging around on the flats at Round Island and down by the Power Plant. Top water, live shrimp and soft baits should muster up a hit. Just remember that trout season is closed and you can take a photo and release them for now.

Snook fishing around the bridges and inlet has been good on the turning tides when the current is slower. It is usually a short bite, but has been good if you are there for it. The north bridge in Fort Pierce has been the best for now. Don't forget to hit around the lighted docks at night or early mornings. Live bait and jigs have been working the best. Up on the flats there have been quite a few shorts hanging around the mangroves and on the flats early.

The redfish were out today, but scattered on the flats. Most will land in the slot size range. This time of year fish soft plastics or gold spoons slow on the flats. Some days will need a little persistence to find them. Round Island and Queen's Cove will be a good place to start. You can also try live or cut bait. Fish the deeper cuts on low tides and they will come up on the shallows during the high tides.

Spanish Mackerel and bluefish have been around the inlets and along some of the beaches. Sand perch and snapper have also been taken around structure. Jacks and ladyfish are just about everywhere right now. As the water clears back up, the fishing should start to improve all around the area. Looking forward to a great weekend of fishing....hope to see you out there!

Tip of the Week:
Trout just never got around to reading when they were in schools and don't realize that the season is closed for them now. Lots will still be caught during the next two months and must be released. Please handle the fish you release as little as possible and get them back into the water quickly. It's important to the future of fishing for us to protect our wonderful resources we have here on the Treasure Coast. We all want the grandkids and great-grandkids to experience the same fun and excitement that we have been fortunate to enjoy!

As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!

Good Fishing and Be Safe,
Capt Charlie Conner
