Having another beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds have picked up and are blowing out of the South at 14 mph, gusting to 18 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Black Drum is the prevalent bite from the north jetty. Clams and stinky, dead shrimp work well for these scent feeders. Blues and Jacks are present and hitting just about anything, they are not picky. The rougher conditions may invigorate the Redfish and C/R Snook bite. We finally have some cooler weather that is supposed to come our way for the weekend that could get things stirred up as well. Flounder in the five to six lb. range have been landed but not in large numbers. It could take an entire afternoon to land one fish. Rumor has it that a 12 lb. fish was landed this week but we've yet to see a photo.
Our first two photos today are courtesy of Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike took the first shot of inlet regular "Granny" with a good sized Black Drum she landed off the north jetty.
Mike Ricciardi is featured in our second photo with the two Black Drum he landed. The fish were 21" and 23" and around fifteen others were landed
Photo three features Dustyn Riveiro with an oversized C/R Red he landed.
