|01-28-16 THURSDAY: WET CONDITIONS TODAY|
We have another wet morning at the inlet. The forecast is calling for rain most of the day today but the conditions are perfect this morning. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and the water is calm. It looks like a great morning to throw on a raincoat and get to the beach for some surf fishing. The winds will pick up late this afternoon creating choppier conditions, There is a NOAA advisory for small craft to exercise caution into Friday.
The Black Drum bite continues at the inlet. Anglers fishing with clams and/or dead, stinky shrimp are getting the best results. Sand fleas, crabs and cut bait will also work for the scent feeders. Pompano are starting to show up as are Flounder. Reds, C/R Snook, Blues and Sheepshead round out the mixed bag.
Our first photo today features Giuseppe Leone of Melbourne with his limit of slot Flounder. Giuseppe landed the fish on the south side of the inlet last weekend.
Photo two features inlet regular Mike Ricciardi with two of three Black Drum he landed that day using clam and shrimp combos.
Thomas Bell of Indialantic is featured in our third photo. Thomas landed the big C/R Red using a bucktail.
Photo four is of Randy Clyburn of Orlando. Randy landed one of the only Sheepshead of the morning using sand fleas.
Our last photo is of a nice Pompano in the 17" range, landed by inlet regular Ike.
