Joe Rimkus of Vero Beach sent in a helpful report from Rio Mar beach Friday morning. Under overcast early morning skies, Rimkus cast a YoZuri crank bait to hook a snook and a couple of bluefish. Other anglers fishing nearby caught the same and jacks, too. The Spanish mackerel schools were just offshore, too, as evidenced by the sheer number of boats Rimkus observed working the schools.
Capt. Tris Colket of Last Mango charters out of Fort Pierce City Marina said the fishing offshore on the troll has been a little slow, although anglers can get a shot at a big sailfish or two. Dolphin and blackfin tuna are also possible catches, with the best chance for action in 120 to 160 feet of water, or over the wrecks southeast of the inlet. Inshore, expect the trout fishing to be better in deeper troughs and channel cuts near the flats as temperatures drop.
