Just posting this here for all the guys who know me! Enjoy :beer

"Hows it going guys. I just moved to Fort Pierce Sunday from Ocala. I use to post in the Big Bend Forum so I thought i'd continue to post here. But any ways I was lucky enough to run into some amazing fishing rite away. I found some local spots about 10 minutes away from my dorms (I'm swimming at Indian River/IRSC). Found the rite bait to use and got right on the snook. I was amazed when I first found this spot, the snook were literally flying out of the water in schools, blasting huge clouds of glass minnows and pilchards, as well as a few fly's . I was actually getting out fished with live bait from the fly's! Here is what me and my buddy caught. Enjoy"

First of the day after getting broke off a few times.



Local fly fisherman with a nice one.


Rich with a big momma.



You can see the clouds of glass minnows in the back.

Nics catchin' & thanks for the fish pics.

That whole area from Ft Pierce to Vero inside and out is a great area to catch snook, redfish, and a whole bunch of other fish - spent a number of years doing that and saw a lot of interesting things.
