Capt. Mark’s passion for inshore saltwater fishing began while living in Stuart, Florida at the southern reaches of the Indian River Lagoon. Here he learned the fine art of snook fishing from the area’s lighted bridges while fishing at night. Here too he learned how to catch trout by the hundreds on the expansive flats from Jensen Beach to Ft. Pier

    Improved Bite in Fort Pierce

    November 20, 2022

    The lackluster fishing in the jungles of Fort Pierce has finally improved. If I had to guess, I’d say the cooler water temperatures are having a positive effect on the local predators feeding activity. I’d also say the slowly declining water levels might be convincing more fish to leave the deep mangrove jungles and take up stations on the outer perimeters, where we can get to them.

      The snook bite has been pretty good throughout the inlet area, including the south jetty. Live shrimp, finger mullet and pilchards are producing the best on both sides of the tidal current changes. Artificial lures mimicking these natural baits will catch too, especially at night and other low-light times.

        Mullet Everywhere in Fort Pierce

        October 24, 2022

        Mullet, mullet (almost) everywhere both north and south of town! If you’ll look closely you’ll see black mullet already round bodied with roe beginning to group-up. You should also notice lots of large schools of silver mullet in the six to eight inch range from the deeper flats to the shorelines. Finally, there are still a fair number of fingerling silvers holding close to structures like docks and mangroves.

          I’ve been hiding from the heat since the end of June. While I realize it’s now the peak of the summer’s heat I simply must get back out there and see what’s happening in real time and through my own experiences. To that end my wife (Kim) and I made it out twice this past week to scout a couple of favorite areas.

            After a bit of a lay-off due to the wind Kim and I were finally able to get out for a morning scouting trip. I decided to look south of town as we’ve not been this direction for well over a month. We hoped to find plenty of mullet and pilchards along the eastern shorelines and the predators which routinely feed upon them.

              40 Incher

              June 23, 2018

              After being snubbed by the trout in one of my favorite spots then being continuously flipped-off (yep, they were tailing) by a finicky school of black drum Matt made contact with this 40 inch redfish.
