    Winter has lost its grip on the Treasure Coast finally. It's still windy out and that will be the norm for several more months. They will still dictate where and when you might get out to enjoy the fishing. The water quality is poor both north and south of Fort Pierce. The winds are keeping it churned up each day. Look for signs of clear water around the river and fish those areas. Plan your adventures with the weather forecast in mind and have fun!

    Don, Sherman and Art were back up to fish on a windy morning. Bluefish, sheepshead, snapper and croakers were on the catch list for the guys to make for a fun day on the water. Keith and Nancy were back for another adventure. We managed one snook along with jacks, sheepshead and croaker on another windy morning that made it a challenge for us. We had fun in spite of the weather. The Treasure Coast Casters had their monthly fishing tournament. I had twins, Josh and Jeff, out for the first time on the boat. They both are avid anglers and both caught fish to weigh in. We lost one nice redfish early, but caught sheepshead, snapper and drum for the tournament. Josh took the third place trophy and prizes with his catch. Mark was down from MA for a few days. We scouted around the area catching a variety of fish including drum, sheepshead and sand perch. Jim was back with Pat and Brian to enjoy the morning. We moved a number of times and caught sheepshead, jacks, croaker, sand perch and a short snook on a day that got windier as the morning progressed. Pat ended the day with a 15 pound jack that wore all of us out.

    There is a good variety of fish to be caught this time of year. Weather conditions can determine what you might fish for and where you might venture. It has been a fun week with lots of excitement!

    Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
    Thanks and Good Fishing!
