12-07-16 WEDNESDAY: FISHING IS GOOD!
The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain this wonderful resource. If you like fishing on the north jetty, treat it and others with respect. DO NOT throw objects at boaters; NO EXCUSES. The western gate is a permanent fixture and can be closed at any time; it will be up the users of the jetty.
Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 2 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. We have a beautiful day and it looks like a good day to get out and do a little surf fishing. Sunshine is predicted all day but we will have variable winds and they will increase a little in the afternoon hours.
Snook are still being landed by our inlet anglers, this late in the season. The season will close December 15th through January 31st, they will be strictly catch and release during this time. Black Drum have been active along with some big Jacks, Sheepshead, Blues, Flounder, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel and Trout. Live shrimp seem to be the most effective live bait and some anglers are using plugs, gotcha lures and swimming plugs for artificials. We have a "cold front" predicted for tomorrow night and perhaps that will stimulate the bite even more.
