|12-19-11 MONDAY: FLOUNDER, REDS, TARPON, BLACK DRUM|
We have windy conditions at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 16 mph and the water is choppy. Small craft should exercise caution.
The bite has slowed at the inlet. Friday was absolutely abysmal, three keeper Black Drum were landed off the north jetty along with small Jacks and small Black Drum in the 12" - 13" range and that was it for the north jetty in the morning hours. The south side was a little better with several Flounder in the 3 - 5 lb range and one keeper Red landed by SISP Ranger Ed .
Inlet regular Roger reported that the night bite for Reds and Tarpon has been very good. Thursday evening approximately 15 Reds over 25 lbs were landed from the north jetty, mostly on jigs and pinfish. Roger estimated there to be hundreds of Tarpon in the water that evening.
8 year old Josh who was fishing with his grandfather from the south jetty when he landed this dinner sized Flounder using live finger mullet. Josh also has a 20" and a 22" Flounder under his belt, a budding young angler if we've ever seen one!
Photo on top is the one of the luckier anglers on Friday, Jerry. He landed two of the three keeper sized Black Drum Friday morning off the north jetty using dead shrimp.
