Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 11 mph, gusting to 13 and there is a moderate chop on the water.
The bite has been slow. A few nice fish come over the rails of the jetties periodically but overall, its been incredibly slow for this time of year. We’re not seeing a lot of bait fish in the water which normally brings in the larger predators. The month of May is the peak time of year for Pompano, Southern Flounder, Snook and Whiting. Conditions have been rough for surf fishing but a few nice Pompano have been landed from both jetties and the catwalks. Snook have been more active in the lower light periods, evenings and before dawn.
Our photo today is one features John Chang and John Hirowaza with a big, beautiful C/R Red that John H. landed from the north jetty
