Try shiners for big bass catches

There are plenty of fish being caught all over the area. Offshore, snapper fishing has been steady for lanes, muttons and mangroves along with black sea bass, triggerfish, porgies and Atlantic sharpnose sharks. At the inlet, anglers are catching flounder, pompano and black drum on the bottom, bluefish, jacks and Spanish mackerel on top. Inshore, the snook fishing has been very good around structures on the changing tides. Redfish are being caught along mangrove shorelines and under docks on gold spoons, live shrimp and scented lures.

Captains Zach and Cole Hazellief, of the Lady Chris party boat out of Taylor Creek Marina in Fort Pierce, said the recent snapper bite has been excellent, but other fish are being caught, too. Scamp grouper, triggerfish, porgies, lane snapper, mangrove snapper, mutton snapper and more are being caught in 80 to 90 feet of water. Inshore, anglers are catching snook at the jetty on swim baits and live mullet.
