Southeast Florida Fishing Report - Fort Pierce

March Madness

Well, you can tell that it’s march... the marlin windsock on my flagpole seems to be standing straight out more often than not. But for those tough enough to venture out anyway, or lucky enough to find a nice day, and they seem to be more prevalent as the month wears on, there are rewards. The rays have been here and gone, and have come back again, and with them have come the cobia. There aren’t to many things as exciting as casting a live hard tail in front of a ray and watching that big cobe fly out and crush it. The king mackerel have been thick. Limiting out on them has become a common occurrence. Our dolphin run continues, not as strong as it was a couple of weeks ago, but they’re still around. And the spring run should be here in full force before we know it. On the bottom, some nice grouper have been coming to the dock. Muttons and genuines have made up the bulk of the snapper that have been caught lately. Those pursuing bottom dwellers with Shimano butterfly jigs have been doing every bit as well as those using live bait and sometimes better, which is throwing a nice twist into the world of bottom fishing. Finally, for those who venture out to the deep water, hopefully on the nice days, tilefish make for an exotic addition to a great days catch.
