Mud Creek

Today I went to Mud Creek near the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant for a little fishin'. I found the place after about 90 minutes of driving, parked, and put in at Little Mud Creek. Mud? What mud? The bottom is hard, packed sand.

I paddled out and headed south, fishing the shoreline. It was low tide, just at the start of incoming. I looked for swirls or unusual water movement, but it was difficult in the rising chop. I had a few bites right at the boat - probably a small jack crevalle or trout.

I arrived at Big Mud Creek only to find that access was blocked. Apparently the power plant doesn't like boat traffic these days. Pity - that was going to be my main fishing point for the day. I rounded the corner and found a few trout with a black/silver/orange SS Minnow (like the one seen here):

I eventually grew tired, realized I'd forgotten my sunscreen, and headed home. While heading home I trolled the SS Minnow and nabbed a 2 lb jack crevalle. Yes, today I've got that "you wore sunglasses and a hat and got a funny looking sunburn" type of sunburn.

  1. Nice fish. Man... I wish I lived somewhere where I could say "sunburn" and "February" in the same sentence. 🙁

  2. So, I went back to Mud Creek today. Caught nothing. Zip, zilch, nada. Saw a redfish or two but couldn't cast to 'em. Paddled about three miles straight into a wind that was strong enough to troll simply by drifting....
