The stretch of surf and shallow ocean waters from Jupiter Inlet to St. Lucie Inlet is the another Treasure Coast of Florida. These incredibly fertile waters yield a marvelous abundance and variety of gamefish that can be found right from the surf's edge to about a mile or two offshore. This oceanic habitat brings smiles to all anglers, be they ankle deep "in the salt", perched on top of kayaks, or hands wrapped around the steering wheel of a sturdy center console vessel. While this magic area yields up plenty of snook, loads of bonito, and roaming schools of permit in the summer, the fall and winter season offers a more stunning (and the largest) cornucopia of gamefish. The peak season goes off with a bang as the mullet and baitfish migration pulses southward in late September and early October, although this time bracket can vary based on adjacent weather systems. This is a wonderful time to "fish to" aggregates of gamesters that are strictly there to dine on the rippling schools of frantic mullet. Light tacklers can get their seasonally-whetted appetites satisfied with crashing snook, tarpon, jacks, and sharks.
