12-27-16 TUESDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, BLUES, FLOUNDER, C/R SNOOK AND JACKS
We have East-Southeasterly winds this morning at 8 mph which will remain light and variable through Thursday mid-day. A cold front will make its way down the coast Thursday night which will create poor to hazardous boating conditions for small craft through the weekend.
Black Drum have been the most active species at the inlet, one of our favorite winter species along with Sheepshead, Flounder and Blues. Try using dead, stinky shrimp for the Black Drum and any type of crustacean for Sheepshead. Live shrimp bounced off the bottom work well for the Flounder and Blues will take just about anything, including spoons. Some catch and release Snook were landed over the weekend.
Our angler of the day is Jim Borruso of Hilton Head, SC who landed his first Sheepshead off the T-Dock using live shrimp.
