    Down At the Boardwalk! downtown Stuart

    I could not stand it. I can see the Roosevelt bridge from where I am. The wind has died down & my tide clock says High Tide. I need to get to bed butttttt, the water is about to start flowing so, I grabbed my rod and walked down the boardwalk to the bridge. When I got down there I found my buddy fishing a point with his mirror lure. He got a couple lady fish but nothing else, after shootin the breeze for a bit, we got to talking about the bite. Tons of fish were breaking the surface, so I asked him if he had anything smaller. I could see tiny shrimp running for their lives. He shows me his tackle box which had a few top water plugs & among other things buried at the bottom, two, dark brown terror eyez DOA jigs, I point to them and say there you go. Put that on, throw it out and wind it back slow. I wanted to see what was happening on the cat walk & scout out the old bridge, so I went for a walk with my flare hawk. People were catching croakers on the cat walk & after making about fifty casts and loosing one jig on the bottom, I decided to walk the old Roosevelt. It was so calm out with the out going tide, I could see tons of fish breaking the surface. Looked a lot like lady fish, and I suspect some Tarpon. I wasn't up on the bridge for ten minutes when I got a call from my buddy who was fishing the point. I run down to see what was up. He landed a nice 30 inch snook on that little DOA Terror Eyez. Unfortunately, In the process he snapped his rod! I had my camera so I snapped a couple of pics for him. He has another rod with him and planned on fishing some more. I had to go, but wanted to post it for him.

    He looks happy. Good job of advising him on what to use.

    I met him at Billy Bones last week & I was telling him how good they work at the Roosevelt bridge.. He bought a pack but had not used one yet. When I saw him it was the only thing in his box I thought would work, I am glad he got one. He was super pumped & Happy.. He wanted to give me the fish, but Told him I would rather release it. So I started reviving it for him. Once it was ok & I was about to turn it loose, he had second thoughts & decided to take it home. Those Root Beer or similar color Terror Eyez are almost Guaranteed to work there.

    There is a Boardwalk on the South side with plenty of space & the catwalk which leads out under the new Bridge. On top of the Old bridge you have to stand on the railing. Can Be very productive. There are plenty of places for the snook to hide. Very possible.
