South Indian River Fishing Report 11/15


The weather has been fantastic this past week. Temperatures in the mid eighties and winds that are very cooperative to fishing inshore. Water temps in the mid to high seventies have really improved the fishing around the area. ;Expect similar conditions in the near future as winter establishes itself on the Treasure Coast. It has been another exciting week on the water.

We have enjoyed a good variety of fish this week. Snapper have been the most prevalent fish out there. Sheepshead and drum are moving into the river now and that is good news. Pompano and mackerel are also coming into the river. Winter fishing is always productive and exciting for anglers! Pete and Peter, Jr. were out with me n a nice morning. First cast was a nice pompano. They found some nice croakers and snapper to add to the days catch. Good morning for the guys! Jerry and Lindy joined me on another nice day. They found redfish, drum, sheepshead and snapper to make for a busy morning along with the usual other species. Bob was back with the baseball guys from PA. We had two boats full and it was another beautiful morning. The guys caught lots of fish. We started out playing with the ladyfish to get warmed up and moved on to snapper, sheepshead, jacks and drum and many others. Don, Art and Sherman had a nice morning to fish. The day was mostly snapper, jacks and sheepshead. All three of them got broke off by redfish or drum on the docks. Art landed a nice tripletail that was just short of the keeper. It was an awesome week of fishing.

Snook have been good at night around the jetties and bridges. Snapper are everywhere and some decent sizes to them. Redfish have been under docks along with drum and sheepshead. Fishing will continue to improve as the water temperatures fall and more of the winter fish arrive to the area. It should be a great November and December this year!

As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby….it’s an ADVENTURE!!

Good Fishing and Be Safe,
