WE'VE GOT THE BLUES!
We have a real nice day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 9 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect for seas. Seas will slowly subside through mid-week then start to build again Thursday morning.
It's all about the Blues at the inlet. This weekend the bite was fantastic according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Large schools of big Blues were making their way in and out of casting range from the jetties. Blues in the 10 lb. range were not uncommon and one angler landed one that was 17 lbs.! Silver spoons work well for Blues but they will hit just about anything, live or artificial. They love the bling, use shiny lures and a heavy wire leader to avoid break offs from their razor sharp teeth. Along with the Blues, quite a few Sheepshead, big Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Reds and Snook were active over the weekend.
