Go back to the basics for bass

Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach reported a mixed bag of catches Friday at Sebastian Inlet State Park’s North Jetty. Catches during the midday outgoing tide included several pompano, mostly right at minimum size, near the beach, and whiting, black drum, sheepshead, Spanish mackerel and oversized redfish towards the end of the jetty. When the tide switched to incoming, anglers began fishing for snook and caught several in the slot and just over it.

Bob Poller of Port St. Lucie sent in a catch report of a nice tripletail he reeled in Saturday while fishing the channel edges of the Indian River Lagoon with a gold spoon. The tripletail was released, but anglers have also been catching pompano, bluefish, jacks, and Spanish mackerel, mostly during the incoming tide. Fish with jigs, spoons and small topater plugs like Gotcha plugs and Zara spooks.
