Looks like the weather will feel a little like fall weather this week. Lower night temps in the 60's will bring mild conditions to the Treasure Coast. The water temps will start dropping off with the cooler night temps. The water conditions are still dirty and hopefully it will improve some by the weekend.

The trout bite has remained good in spite of the water. Early morning top water lures have offered the best opportunities for trout fishing. Live shrimp has made it a challenge catching a trout before the many catfish in the river attack it. As the water clears, the trout fishing will continue to improve.

Snook fishing has remained decent at night around the bridges and inlet. Most of the action has been around the north bridge and Taylor Creek. Early morning can also find snook up on the flats feeding. Top water will work well at first light for snook. Spook Jrs., Chug Bugs and Top Pups have been working best this week.

Redfish have been in the deeper cuts of the mangroves along with the bridges, docks and inlet. As the sun warms things up, you will find them moving onto the flats later in the mornings to find a snack. Jigs and soft baits have worked well on reds. I have been keeping to the lighter colors with the dirty water conditions.

As usual, the jacks and ladyfish are everywhere and beating most fish to the punch. There are so many in the river, it's a challenge not to catch one! Jeff and both Scotts found that out this week. But they are fun to catch anyway so enjoy them while they are here. Flounder are still being caught around the bridges and jetties along with the deeper cuts of the mangroves. Soft baits and small pinfish are working best right now. Pompano are making their way into the river and beaches. Looks like fall is coming to the Treasure Coast.

Tip of the Week:
Take a kid fishing soon! There is no smile wider and no eyes brighter than watching a child reel in their first fish. Even though they usually want to take it home, name it and keep it as a pet.....but watching a kid enjoying a fishing experience is a rewarding experience. My little granddaughter is growing up fast and I keep showing her the boat and fishing rods.....and she is only three months old! Make your heart feel good and take a kid fishing soon!

No report next week as my brother and family, myself and one of my best friends are all heading out on a cruise to relax and enjoy being together. I am looking forward to getting together with all of them.

Have a safe weekend. Remember, fishing is not just another hobby.....it's an ADVENTURE!

Good fishing and be safe,
Captain Charlie Conner
