10-28-15 WEDNESDAY: REDS, SNOOK, SPANISH MACKEREL, JACKS, BLACK DRUM, LADYFISH, FLOUNDER AND POMPANO
We have a lot of clouds over the inlet this morning and it's been raining off and on. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 9mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for scattered showers this morning and numerous showers this afternoon. Seas are 3 - 5' with an eight second wave period.
We are seeing a real nice variety of species at the inlet including Reds, Snook, Jacks, Ladyfish, Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Flounder and Black Drum. Pompano have started to show up over the past few days. As the water temperature continues to cool we should start seeing more Blues and Flounder in larger numbers. Get out and wet a line, there's no better time!
Our first photo today is of Hank Christianson of Melbourne. Hank is a recent transplant from Idaho who wintered here regularly before making the big move. Hank was fishing for Black Drum when he landed this oversized Snook. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo.
