Summer time fishing Ft. Pierce Florida is a great time to bring your kids. Waters are calm this time of year and there is still a lot of opportunities to catch fish. Last week fishing out of Ft. Pierce Bob requested something for his family. We left the Ft. Pierce city marina centrally located to Vero beach and Port St. Lucie on the charter boat Fins. Live bait is a very good way to summer time fish in Ft. Pierce and kids love it. Using Sabiki hooks we caught plenty of bait in a short time.
I turned the charter boat Fins to the north east and steamed towards the offshore reef. Summer time fishing with live bait is a great way to catch sailfish, dolphin (mahi mahi), king fish cobia and more. Well it wasn’t long before bonita tuna arrived to start the morning off. Bonita are fun tenacious fish to catch and are regulars this time of year. Great learning experience as the kids are able to hook and gaff their own fish.
We had three bonita tuna on at once . Tutoring the kids how to hook the fish , proper techniques for spinning gear and gaffing their own fish really added to the enjoyment of the day out.
Summer time fishing Ft. Pierce Florida can also get you king fish. Fast running fish on spinning rods and a lot of fun. In a short while these kids were hooking all their fish and gaffing them! I will tell you it was a ball! You can bring your children. Summer time fishing Ft. pierce Florida, it is about fun, enjoyment and creating memories to last a life time.
