South Indian River Fishing Report 10/9

Inshore:

It’s still hot outside and afternoon storms still are a threat for the Treasure Coast. It has been windy lately and it seems like it’s going to be that way for a while longer. Water temperatures are in the mid to high eighties still and that means that early mornings or late evenings are the best time to fish. Watch the forecast and plan your trips carefully.

Snook fishing continues to be good at night or early mornings around the inlets, docks and bridges of the area. Live bait, Top Water, DOA Terror Eyz or Bait Busters have been working well. Fish the docks for redfish, snapper and sheepshead. DOA shrimp is the best choice in those areas. Jacks, mackerel and ladyfish are abundant in the river. Snapper have been everywhere the past few weeks. The September Treasure Coast Casters Tournament was a great example. The kids caught lots of snapper for the weigh in. Go to treasure coast casters on Facebook to see all the results. I fished the Michael Shields Memorial Inshore Tournament again this year. This was the 10th anniversary. Mike Burke and his boys, Rhys and Cameron, were with me again. We decided to keep 6 year old Rhys busy and spent most of the time snapper fishing. The boys are always great kids and we all enjoyed the day. I have no idea how many fish the kids caught….but it was a lot! They even caught enough nice fish to take some home for dinner. It’s an awesome tournament that benefits Project LIFT. I always enjoy helping out for the tournament.

Plan on lots of hot weather ahead and drink plenty of fluids. Sunscreen is a must as well. The mullet run is going strong and fishing has been good. Enjoy October fishing on the Treasure Coast!

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

Good Fishing and Be Safe,
