05-09-11 MONDAY: BLUES, BLACK DRUM, REDS, SNOOK, JACKS, SHEEPSHEAD AND MANGROVE SNAPPER
Winds are blowing out of the East at 10 mph this morning and the water is calm.
Over the weekend there was a smattering of just about everything landed but nothing in large numbers. Fishing was definitely on the slow side but we saw Blues, Black Drum, Snook, Reds, Jacks, Sheepshead and a couple of Mangrove Snapper. It was gorgeous and we hope all of you that were lucky enough to get to the inlet this weekend, had a great time. The newly dredged tide pool is a huge hit for families and we are extremely happy with the way the project contractors and consultants got the job done not only on time, but ahead of schedule.
For those of you who visit or fish the south side of the State Park, part of the parking lot is cordoned off as the old "L" Dock is being demolished and replaced with a new "T" Dock that will be larger and much sturdier. The old wooden pilings will be replaced with concrete pilings and will serve as a place for emergency vessels, Coast Guard vessels, police vessels and contractor's vessels to dock safely.
