where are the seatrout

Drove up A1A and put my canoe in along the roadside fished up and down the shoreline both near and far ended up with a lizard fish. Went to sailfish flats around 12:30 and ran into jacks and ladyfish it was fun but not what I was after. I was using the ususal jigs and topwater plugs I normally use but I guess the have seen them before and didn't want to play. I am planning a trip to sebastian when the flounder run hopefully will have better luck then.

    Try north of the Jensen causeway on the west side. Wade, kayak, or canoe those grassy flats near the docks. Water temps are really wacky right now so that's part of why some aren't catching trout and pompano

    We are still getting fair numbers on the west side up by the powerlines on DOA Shrimp.

    They have been hitting good around boy scout island, south of stuart causeway.

    Glow shrimp has worked great for us this week with the water quality.

    Sailfish flats and any of the flats near the powerplant will almost always have trout. Why look for trout when the pomps should showing up good soon.

    there are 3 launches for sailfish flats. 1. small pier right across from bathtub beach 2. Path across from stuart rocks 3. small beach area across form the house of refuge. Fish from the docks all the way out to boyscout island. You'll finds lots of fish out there.

    Just so everybody knows, 1 is closed currently. I personally prefer 2 like a lot of other people.

    I will probably be out saturday.
