We’ve been seeing some nice catches at the inlet which is typical for this time of year. Snook remain active and the season is open for one more week, although the cold front could send them seeking warmer waters in the river and canals. Slot and oversized Reds, Black Drum, Pompano, Flounder, Jacks and a few straggler species in ones and two’s, including Blues, Sheepshead and Cubera Snapper.
Our featured photo today is of Jesse Fennell of Orlando is featured in photo one with an oversized C/R Red he landed off the north jetty. Jesse was using live, jumbo shrimp and reported a lot of Snook, Black Drum and Reds that day with a few Spanish Mackerel and Pompano filtering in as well. Jesse didn’t bother measuring this Red; he got it back into the water right after a quick photo.
Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach has been fishing the north jetty most of last week and reported a decent bite. Pompano, Snook, Reds and Black Drum have been keeping most anglers busy. Wednesday’s Snook bite was very good in the morning hours. Mike sent in our last two photos of Robin who had an excellent couple of days on the north jetty. Robin landed the real nice Cubera Snapper in photo two while free lining live shrimp, then landed a 31″ slot Snook. She landed the oversized C/R Snook in photo three late week. What a nice week at the inlet!
