We are still dealing with high winds at the inlet. This morning winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 19 mph, gusting to 23 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 4:00 p.m. Thursday. Poor conditions are forecasted through the rest of the week but we could see some positive changes for the weekend. Stay tuned.
The bite has been hit or miss at the inlet but spring conditions are on the way and we should see some return of normalcy. Spring is one of the best times of the year to fish the inlet. April and May should bring us Southern Flounder, more Snook, Whiting, Croakers, Mackerel, Margate, Perch, Pompano and the shrimp should continue to run. We’ve heard that some of readers have been having good luck shrimping at undisclosed spots! Bring it on, we are ready!
Our photo today comes from the north jetties inlet regular Tony Swiderski of Sebastian landed this oversized Snook free lining live shrimp. He estimated it was around 34”. He didn’t take the time to measure it, this nice breeder was returned to the water quickly and unharmed.
