12-23-15 WEDNESDAY: BLACK DRUM, POMPANO, SHEEPSHEAD, BLUES, JACKS, REDS, C/R SNOOK AND FLOUNDER
We have cloud cover over the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 15 mph, gusting to 20 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but always check prior to boating as conditions can change quickly.
The Black Drum bite remains steady from the north jetty. Anglers using dead shrimp and clams or combos of the two are bringing in fish in the 18" - 25" range. The limit is five per day per person and you may possess one over 24", the minimum is 14". Please familiarize yourself with the FWC regulations on bag limits and sizes for all saltwater species, they can be found at the top right corner of this page. Pompano and Sheepshead have been active, much to the delight of our inlet anglers. C/R Snook, Reds, Flounder, Blues and Jacks have all been active as well.
