|11-01-17 WEDNESDAY: BLACK DRUM, SPANISH MACKEREL, REDS, SNOOK AND JACKS|
Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach fished the outgoing tide on Friday and reported a decent bite but not as good as the two previous mornings. Mike made up for it with a real nice 32" Black Drum he landed on dead shrimp. Mike landed a total of four Drum that day. There was also a nice Spanish Mackerel bite, Mark and Ray are featured in photo two with 23" and 28" Macks, nice!
Our first photo features 11 year old Harry Loftus of Sebastian. Harry fished on the south side of the inlet, east of the T-Dock at sunset. Harry used a Yo-Zuri crystal minnow lure that caught the attention of this slot Snook, his very first one! Sometimes when there is an abundance of bait in the water and something new and different is tossed into the mix, the results can be very good.
Red Snapper season is opening for recreational anglers for two weekends beginning Friday, November 3 - 5, 2017 and again on November 10 -12, 2017. Bag limit is one per person per day with no size limit. It looks as if seas will cooperate this coming weekend. Please go to FWC.com for more information or information on commercial fishing.
