Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 6 mph, gusting to 10 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Conditions are looking much better at the inlet but NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution due to the northwest winds. Winds will shift to the North this afternoon.
We received an update from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty on Monday afternoon from 1:00 – 4:30. He didn’t have good news. The bite was incredibly slow, so slow that he didn’t even get a bite the entire time! A good group of inlet regulars were out and the story was the same up and down the jetty, very few fish. Mike saw 2 undersized Black Drum that were landed and returned, 1 short Snook and 1 Snook that was in the slot. That was the grand tally for Monday afternoon. Hopefully with conditions starting to settle down, we’ll see it pick up. Thanks Mike!
Or angler of the day is David Guttmann of Orlando with a real nice 20” Sheepshead he landed off the north jetty.
