Anglers come from across the globe for the wonderful fishing opportunities that exist around the Ft. Pierce Inlet and throughout the Atlantic Ocean. While yes, it is true that you can walk right outside of your hotel room and cast off of one of the five fishing piers at Dockside Inn and have great success, but there’s no sense in limiting yourself to just one spot. Here are a couple of great secret fishing spots used by the locals:
Fort Pierce Jetty—this is the perfect place to find bigger fish that would normally require a boat. Catch big snook when the tides change and there are a lot of flounder when the weather gets cooler.
Little Mud Creek—looking to do a little wading fishing? Mud Creek has different depths so you can set your line where you need it to go. This is the spot for trout, snook and in the summer, there are plenty of jacks, snapper, ladyfish, sheephead and tarpon.
Ocean View Beach—this is by no means a secluded spot, but if you watch out for the people and go at the right time, this surf fishing spot can yield you bluefish, whiting, croaker and Spanish macks.
Middle Cove and Sand Bar—just hop out of the boat and catch some of the best trout and snook in south Florida. The locals get an early start and seem to have the best success going that route.
No matter the spot, Ft. Pierce has plenty of fish for your lure. See why so many people continue to take their poles to Dockside Inn and to the great angling spots around Ft. Pierce, Florida.
