12-30-16 FRIDAY: BLACK DRUM, TROUT, SHEEPSHEAD, POMPANO, REDS AND C/R SNOOK
It's a chilly Friday morning at the inlet at 55 degrees, with the wind chill it feels like 50. Winds are high, blowing out of the West-Northwest at 18 mph, gusting to 23 and the water is choppy. Seas are running 8 - 11' with a wave interval of 9 seconds today and NOAA has a small craft advisory through late this evening. Winds will start to diminish this afternoon but be sure to check the NOAA forecast prior to boating over the weekend. The cold front dropped the water temperature but not many anglers are out fishing in the less-than-desirable conditions. Find yourself a sheltered spot along the shoreline today for Pompano, Reds, Black Drum and Trout action.
Our photos today are courtesy of Khoi Van. Khoi fished the north jetty with friends on Christmas Day and they had great luck. The men landed several nice sized Black Drum, C/R Snook and a couple of Cubera Snapper, sweet catches gentlemen!
Photo one features Khoi Van with a 28" Cubera Snapper and Rashon Hogan with a 21" Snapper.
Photo two features Khoi Van with a C/R Snook and our last photo is of the men with their catches of the day.
