South Indian River Fishing Report 12/12
The holidays are already upon us. Where has this year went? Time passes by way to fast anymore!While it ended up being a wet and windy weekend, the fishing continues to be good around the Treasure Coast this week. The rains have left for now, but expect continued windy days throughout the rest of the month.
We had good days earlier in the week. Ron, Mike and Timberly caught eight redfish along with sheephead, trout and a variety of other fish. The redfish bite has been good around the river recently. Fishing docks and flats have both been productive from Round Island to Bear Point along the river. Live bait, Terror Eyz and DOA shrimp have all worked for us. I had Savannah and DeLora on board for the Treasure Coast Casters first tournament. The girls caught a lot of fish on a very rainy day, but none to turn in for the tournament. We caught trout and snook on live bait and Terror Eyz along with lots of ladyfish to keep them busy on a wet day.
Bridges have held sand perch, sheephead and black drum. Bluefish, mackerel and jacks have been hanging around the turning basin to the jetties. Pompano have been out in the river and along the beach if you could find nice weather to get out and fish for them. Snook fishing at night has remained good for those anglers using live bait, Terror Eyz and jigs. The fishing has been good, just challenging this time of year. Have fun and dress appropriately for the conditions and you will enjoy fishing this time of year.
As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!!
Good Fishing and Be Safe,
