Snook surrounded by greenies.
08-05-16 FRIDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, JACKS, LOOKDOWNS, REDS, C/R SNOOK AND SPANISH MACKEREL
We have a little breeze this morning! Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a light chop on the water. NOAA is calling for the wind to pick up this afternoon which will give us more chop on the water. Even with the wind, the no see 'ums are out and biting this morning.
Mangrove Snapper, a few Muttons, Blue Runners, Lookdowns, Jacks, Reds and C/R Snook are coming over the rails of the jetties but not in huge numbers. A few Spanish Mackerel are zipping around the jetties as well. Summer at the inlet is typically slow but there have been summers that have been much worse.
Our photos today is courtesy of Richard and Pam Winegar of Palm Bay. Pam and Richard sent in some nice wildlife photos taken at the inlet. The photo is of a large Snook in the water, surrounded by greenies that are staying safely out of range!
