BLUES, SNOOK, REDS, POMPANO, SHEEPSHEAD AND BLACK DRUM
We have overcast skies at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 6 mph, gusting to 11 and conditions are calm for the time being. Winds will begin to increase this afternoon into Tuesday and we will see numerous showers and possible lightning storms tomorrow ahead of a cold front. The front will bring us high seas through late week.
The north jetty is crowded with anglers this morning, it looks like a holiday weekend out there! Yesterday some Blues in the 10 – 15 lb. range moved in although not in huge numbers, but enough to get our attention. Silver spoons are a good bet for the species but they will strike just about anything put in front on them. Be sure to add a strong leader, their teeth are sharp and cutoffs are common. Blues are a lot of fun to catch with their strong runs and jumps. Snook, Reds, Pompano, Sheepshead and Black Drum were also in the mix over the beautiful weekend. Get out and try your luck!
Our angler of the day is Sally Baughman of Jackson Hole, WY. Sally is back for the winter months and spending as much time on the north jetty as possible. She landed this nice slot Snook and a Black Drum, using live shrimp.
