I tried fishing live shrimp and mullet inside the port and at the N. jetty Tuesday. The 25 mph west wind made for a strong current and a hard time. I ended up getting two jack crevalle and a lookdown. I did see a lot of finger mullet, so the potential for a good trip is there.
Friday and this weekend I shifted my focus to the Indian River Lagoon. I noticed the clearest water I’ve seen in a long time, but some spots were all sand with no grass at all. I did find a fair amount of grass in deeper water, especially east of Port St. John. I saw a lot of 5-15 lb black drum, but couldn’t get any to eat.
Saturday, it became really windy out of the south-south east. I tried fishing in a canal, I got some 5-10 inch seatrout and an 8 inch redfish.
Sunday, the southwest wind had the water stirred up, but I saw some bigger black drum off my dock. I didn’t get any.
