03-24-16 THURSDAY: SNOOK, BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, BLUES, JACKS AND LOOKDOWNS
Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 12 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for a chance of showers throughout the day today.
The Snook bite is slowing down a bit but a few lucky anglers are landing a keeper here and there. A Black Drum or two, Sheepshead, Lookdowns, a few Reds, Jacks and a few Blues have been coming over the rails but overall the bite is slow. Anglers have been using shrimp for the Snook but every now and then an angler will land a Snook on a sand flea while fishing for other species. Bob Green of Vero Beach landed a beautiful 32" slot fish on a sand flea on. Clam and shrimp combos have been working for Black Drum.
Our first photo today features 9 year old Juan Sebastian Miranda of Lake Worth. Juan was fishing with his father when he landed this good sized Bluefish using mullet.
Photo two features Juan Miranda of Lake Worth with a monster Red he landed Monday using mullet. Although fishing was slow, he managed this real nice catch. Juan estimated the big bull to be around 45 lbs. He didn't want to keep it out of the water too long, so he didn't bother to weigh it; it went back into the water after a quick photo. The big Red swam off healthy.
Simon Amis of Melbourne is featured in photo three. Simon landed the oversized Snook using a jig over the weekend. Simon reported a slow bite that evening, with only a couple of other oversized Snook that were landed and released.
