05-29-13 WEDNESDAY: POOR CONDITIONS FOR FISHING
Conditions are less than desirable this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 20 mph and gusting to 25. The wind, clouds and showers have kept most folks home today. Small craft should exercise caution. Starting this evening through Saturday morning a small craft advisory will be in effect. Always check the coastal forecast prior to going offshore.
We haven't had a whole lot of shore based action, but patient anglers have landed a few nice fish. Snook and Reds, mostly oversized and in few numbers have been landed, along with Jacks, Blues, Ladyfish and Atlantic Spadefish.
Our angler of the day is Chris Lockwood. Chris was fishing the north jetty when he landed this nice 35" C/R Snook using mojarra, about 8:00 p.m. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. Ladies and gentlemen, his is the proper way to hold a C/R fish.
Our photo from yesterday has been corrected with the proper species listed. The shark was a Reef Shark, not a Nurse Shark. Thanks to all of you who keep us on our toes!
