Jensen Beach Fishing Report 11-30-09

FISHING 11/30/09

Cool nights in the 50's and with highs of 75 slowed me down but not the fish. Surf finally slowed, weeds are gone and the Blue fish, Mac's and small Jacks are thick. Chrome and shiny spoons, Got-cha or cut mullet is the bait, at one point I heard of one cast one fish. With the cooler water these fish are there well into the noon hour, then the Whiting, Croaker, Pompano and Snook show as that edge warms. Last week the Snook were short this week they have been slot fish all week on spoons, small Whiting and the Yozuri Crystal minnow. Fishing on the beach has been good with fish all day, pick the hour for the species.
Yes, the river fish know it is cold and they eat to maintain their body temperatures, so you should have been here last night, the bite was on. How many times this week have I heard this story and I am in the store making sure every body get what's needed. So much for my fishing. The Snook bite at the bridges (do not forget your jacket) has been off the charts, Flair hawks has been the bait. Lighter hawks, 1oz, the water is not crashing through, the lighter hawks fall slower and I believe that is the reason. Anglers were catching five and six fish to get a keeper, I would be glad to four, dark hours, incoming tide, you pick the bridge. Slot size Red fish till late morning, lots of big Trout and three pound Jacks to keep you awake. From the Ft. Pierce Inlet to the St. Lucie Inlet fishing has been excellent, yes the Pompano are here. Live baits or artificial all report good catches.
Off-shore is just as crazy, Dolphin to twenty pounds, Sails in the spread, Wahoo for the down baits and nice size Kings all close. From sixty to one hundred feet of water it was fishing. Problem was one day it was north of the inlet the next day it was south, listen to the radio and if all you are hearing is south pick up the baits and run south. I know it is hard to run buy a rip in the water or a patch of weeds, just do it, unless you see birds and flying fish. The Wahoo have been on the down baits out at the deeper water, slow down and get your baits back in the water you are now south of the inlet.
