Living in and fishing out of Ft Lauderdale since 1986 so yeah,I've seen quite a decline in both our fishing and our standard of living here on the New River. Things change so you adapt,I now spend most of my fishing time out in the glades,fresh and salt. Cross the bridge into Everglades City and it's like turning the clock back 30 years to a soon to be forgotten Florida.
Grew up in Palm Bay and fished the Indian River around Sebastian including the inlet multiple times a week. Not there currently but going home at the end of the week. Any mahi or sails being caught out of west palm? I never got into that fishery so me and my friends might give it a try when we’re there. Otherwise we’re gonna fish for bass and tarpon.
