Well, the man above heard our plea’s and Florida was spared from Hurricane Dorian. As we continue our relief efforts for our friends and family in the northern Bahamas, the fishing has seemingly heated up. The Snook bite in both the Fort Pierce and Sebastian inlets has been great. And with Snook season opening, live bait has been producing some solid slot linesiders. Tarpon have been congregating along the turning basin and bridges on the outgoing tide. Sightfishing between Wabasso and Harbor Branch has taken a back seat for now while we wait for the water to clear, however areas near the inlets have seen a steady flow of clean crisp blue water. Despite the dirty water from the storm surge, fishing along the Indian River been good. With the dirty water, focus your artificial’s and live bait along docks, seawalls, mangrove shorelines and spillways for opportunities of a mixed bag. August is a warm month along the east coast so the Trout bite has been best in the predawn hours, but as the sun and water temperatures rise, they will push to the deeper water.
