09-21-15 MONDAY: REDS, SNOOK, SNAPPER, JACKS, TARPON AND LOTS OF BAITFISH!
We have a real pretty morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 5 mph, gusting to 7 and there is a light chop on the water. Although weather forecasts are calling for drier weather through Wednesday, NOAA is calling for potential isolated showers. Keep it in mind if heading offshore.
Over the weekend some nice Snook, Reds, Snapper and large Jacks were in play according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. There's a lot of bait in the water and big Tarpon are chasing the schools in the surf. A few decent sized Flounder and Blues have come over the rails but not in significant numbers.
Our photos today are courtesy of Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike fished in the wind and rain and reported a good Mangrove Snapper and Redfish bite. Mike landed two nice Snapper and a 25.5" Redfish as did Bob Green of Vero Beach. Mike and Bob landed their Reds on the outgoing tide, Bob used mojarra and Mike used mullet.
Our first photo today features Dot Kern of Bradenton who came over with their local fishing group and fished the north jetty every day, even in the rain. Dot landed the 20" slot Red during early morning Redfish bite.
Photo two features Mike Riccardi and Bob Green, both of Vero Beach with their 25" slot Reds.
