Calm summer's day fishing inshore on the Indian River

Salt water therapy fishing in the Indian River, Saint Lucie County

Talk about serenity.... pulling your boat up on a spoil island and wading for permit, redfish, and trout soothes your soul. Doc's Goofy jigs and live shrimp were used to get action with light tackle. Even the ladyfish were providing some jumps and excitement to add to the 'Salt Water Therapy' needed after a week of work. As March is in full swing we should see some off-shore action when the weekends align with calm seas. I'm hearing report of wahoo and dolphin (mahi) in 90 feet of water while fishing the color breaks and temperature changes. Dave's Bait is in the turning basin at $15 a dozen. Live bait is always a key to success while slow trolling greenies and pilchards. Anything belly up in the live bait well needs to be chopped up for chum when encountering dolphin to keep the action at the boat. Hopefully we'll have some stories and pictures this weekend. Stay tuned and don't eat the greenies (see picture above).
