05-23-16 MONDAY: THE BITE IS PICKING UP!
It's a real pretty morning at the inlet. We have West-Northwest winds blowing at 11 mph, gusting to 13 and there is a light chop on the water. NOAA is predicting winds to shift to the Northeast this afternoon with a slight chance of showers.
Over the weekend the bite picked up according to Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Some nice Reds, decent sized Flounder and Mangrove Snapper were landed. Surf fishing wasn't great but croakers are beginning to run along the beach which should improve chances. One can usually tell when the bite picks up, word travels quickly and more anglers magically appear on the jetties!
Our angler today is Caleb Russell who landed the 28.5" C/R Red from the north jetty Saturday night. The Red was landed around 9:00 p.m. on live shrimp and safely released after the photo.
