    August has turned into a fantastic month around the Treasure Coast. Great fishing action along with beautiful weather has made for lots of fun out on the water. You still will have to contend with the usual afternoon chances of rain and thunderstorms, but getting on the water early can provide you with some great fishing this month. Get out there early and have some fun!

    Redfish have continued to feed in the shallows and allowed many anglers to experience some thrilling action on the Indian River. Our best day came when Joel and Craig went out on a fishing adventure with me. We came upon a school with at least 100 fish in it that were eagerly feeding and tailing across the flat. Craig caught the first red that was 28" and released it. We came upon reds most of the morning and the guys ended up with nine hookups and landed five redfish from 26" to 28". Travis, Carol and Stan joined me to celebrate Travis' birthday. Travis' goal was to catch a redfish that day. He succeeded with a nice upper slot fish that day. Herman was out with me on a day that the winds kept us from reading the flats. We found the fish several times, but couldn't get into casting distance of them. It was a fun week to be fishing for redfish!

    There has been a good trout bite up north of Fort Pierce. Harbor Branch, Queen's Cove and Round Island have continued to hold trout. Herman caught a good number of sea trout including a flounder on the flats. Travis, Carol and Stan caught their share of trout as well. DOA CAL jerk baits have been working very well for us this week. Work your lures slowly for a better success ratio. Live bait and top water lures can also get you some trout on the flats.

    There has still been a good snapper bite along the channel and around structure. I had several reports of a good snook bite around the jetties this week on live bait, Terror Eyz and Bait Busters. A lot of snook are holding up around the rocks of the jetties feeding on the many bait schools in the area.

    The fall mullet run is in full swing now. The river is getting flooded with large schools of finger mullet and the fish are eagerly gorging themselves on the plentiful supply of food. It's a great time of year to try a DOA BFL lure around the mullet schools. It swims better than a mullet and can get you some great strikes on the flats.

    Have fun and get your gear ready for snook season!

    As always, remember, fishing is not just another's an ADVENTURE!!

    Good Fishing and Be Safe,
    Captain Charlie Conner
