Fort Pierce- HOT INSHORE BITE- Slot snook, tons of reds, HUGE 31 inch trout
With some swells lately, I have been staying inshore. The past week has been insane fishing for us. Our 3 recent trips have yielded some great fish...All fish have come on assorted DOA's and Mirrolures...Heres a breakdown of each trip:
Tuesday, September 4th:
Evening trip, started with 2 decent redfish around 23 inches. Right around sunset, in a foot of water, my buddy hooks a huge snook, and its on for a minute, jumps, and spits the hook. Probably an overslot fish. We get back to fishing, and 3 casts later, he hooks another nice snook....Which ends up being the rare slot! A nice 29 inch fish..
Saturday, Semptember 8th:
Morning trip on my Gheenoe. Started a little slow, but bite really picked up by 8am. Ended up with 4 quality redfish between 23 and 25 inches and 2 nice trout.
Sunday, September 9th evening trip: Absolutely epic trip. Got 12 redfish between 20 and 28 inches, 2 trout, and the biggest trout we've caught to date, and absolute gator 31 incher. We made sure to get a nice healthy release on that big girl. I'd guess she weighed 10 pounds...I dont know though. I know it was huge.
That trout is EPIC, and way cool to release unharmed.

Great job!!! Looks like in the power plant east side area. Those mangroves are a hot spot!!!!
In my opinion,that doesn't look like power plant area at all. It definitely looks like north of north bridge in Ft. Pierce. But to stay on topic, epic catches guys. I fished the 1st through the 3rd and the bite was slow to say the least !! Makes me wanna go get a line wet right NOW !!
