05-25-17 THURSDAY: SNOOK, SNAPPER, JACKS AND TROUT
Dark clouds are hanging over the inlet this morning and we have intermittent rain showers. Winds are blowing out of the South at 4 mph, gusting to 10 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution through 4:00 p.m. today, it's still bumpy out there. We are experiencing extreme tides due to the new moon tonight. Tomorrow is a new day and the forecast is calling for a beautiful weekend. Get out and wet a line!
The bite from the jetties has been slow. Snook are starting to gear up for spawning season and we will see them getting more active in preparation for the big event. Snook season will be closed from June 1st - August 31st. Please do not target the species during this time; they will already be exhausted! Mangrove and Mutton Snapper are starting to appear and the summer months should bring us Margate, Lookdowns, Sandperch, Reds and Atlantic Spadefish as well.
