Fall Bite in Stuart

October 11, 2018 by Capt. Bob Bushholz

Trip Info


It’s transition time here on the Treasure Coast with snook moving inshore up the Indian and St. Lucie Rivers. We did have a great summer bite while livebaiting pilchards and greenies on circle hooks. Once the season opened on September 1st, small croakers were available which worked really well. Plenty of slot sized snook 28-32” with some around 40”.
One of the best tripletail bites in several years catching 138 so far this year up to 24.5 lbs. Live or frozen shrimp on trollrite jigs work the best on 12 lb test.
The mullet run is in full swing with tons of baitfish and jacks, tarpon, snook and bluefish chasing them around. We should start seeing some pompano, bonefish and spanish mackerel real soon with and increase of sheepshead, black drum and redfish around the bridges.
