Sorry about no August report but lot’s of bad press on the river’s condition has resulted in a slow August for me and many other captains. I am now back at my home AA marina on Indian River Drive in Jensen Beach. Lately we have been fishing the Inlet area for snook, flounder, redfish, and jacks on incoming tide, live baiting a mile or two outside for kingfish and bonita and fishing the bridges for snook, black drum and snapper. Really have not fished north but once lately catching 3 tripletail to 13 pounds. The quality of the St. Lucie River is a crime and plan on staying away till things clean up. I will be getting back to the trout north of the Jensen Causeway on the Indian River tommorow. With the water releases slowing down, we should slowly see an improvement in water quality in the St. Lucie River but for now it’s not healthy.

Good news, starting around September 10th, Catch 22 Fishing Charters will be offering deep sea fishing charters for ¾ and full day trips aboard my friend’s 28’ Pacemaker “Buddy Lee”. Capt. Bud Friedley holds a 100 ton masters and has been fishing offshore for many years. He will also be fishing out of AA Marina.

I will be getting back to posting current fishing reports for both inshore and offshore in October. For the past year or so I have been posting a “fishing forecast” which many anglers enjoyed and thanks for the e-mails. They have served it’s purpose and it’s time for a change.

Good fishing everyone,

Capt. Bob Bushholz
