Night fishing in the Saint Lucie River

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

We took a trip out a couple of days before Thanksgiving, and thought we would see how the evening snook bite was doing.   We headed out at about six pm with some light tackle rods, some lures and live shrimp.  The tide was completely low and just begining to creep in.  The moon hadn't made it up quite yet so it was pretty dark out. The mullet run had since ceased, and the the night time action has definately changed.  We were not seeing the snook like we had.  The mullet have moved up into warmer waters.  We did start to see some action as the tide progressed.   We ended up with about six snook that night and a bonnet head shark. Most of them on a artificials like the repalla and some DOA swim baits.  I have to say the green lights produced for us this time.  Although we did catch a couple under the regular lights. We fished until the tide turned to go out and had a great time.
