[Stuart,FL] Inshore saltwater fishing aboard Catch 22 Fishing Charters in Jensen Beach
Fishing Tarpon With Live Baits and Artificials (10/03/2006)
[Stuart,FL] The mullet run is in full force. Snook, trout, redfish, tarpon can be fished with live baits and artificals. Starting north near the power plant, finger mullet are everywhere so livebaiting or top water action is a definte option. Snook, trout, reds, ladyfish, jacks and some scattered pompano and spanish mackerel are targeted species in the flats along with flounder and tripletail on the channel edges and markers.

[Stuart,FL] Inshore fishing on the Indian River. Hot inside and cold offshore.
Permit Me (7/01/2006)
[Stuart,FL] Seas are down, baitfish outside the inlet are thick so guess it's time to go play outside. We did a few trips recently livebaiting nearshore. Around the sandpile, plenty of bonitas to bend those rods with a few kingfish and cudas mixed in.
All Hooked Up (6/01/2006)
[Stuart,FL] Wow, it's June already and we are definitely into our summer mode. Water temps are in the low 80's inshore and we are seeing an increase in baitfish in both the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers.
Floundering Around (5/01/2006)
[Stuart,FL] Lets start in the St. Lucie River this time and work our way east. We have been fishing the 10 cent bridge often lately with great sucess when the current is moving. Quite a mixed bag with snook to 39"on live shrimp, rootbeer terrorize and also trolling jointed bombers and rattle traps.
Bones (4/01/2006)
[Stuart,FL] Action in the grassflats has been decent north of the county line on both sides. A mixture of trout, redfish, ladyfish, snook, jacks and pompano have kept anglers busy. Seems the past few months the majority of baitfish are concentrated north of the Jensen Beach Causeway.
