08-23-17 WEDNESDAY: FISHING REMAINS ON THE SLOW SIDE

Please send your fishing photos, updates and inquiries to nmaxwell@sitd.us. Our new web site is under construction. We are hoping to bring you a more modern, updated, mobile ready site.

Winds are blowing out of the North at 8 mph, gusting to 9 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Winds will shift to the Northeast this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories but we have a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms after 2:00 p.m. today.

We are not seeing a lot of action from the jetties. The bite is still slow but we expect that to change soon. With some places seeing hoards of finger mullet in the surf, the predators can’t be far behind. Jason Thatcher sent us a link to a YouTube video of the beginning of the fall mullet run, we’re excited now! It’s been a long, slow summer. To view the video, type 2017 Fall Mullet Run First Sighting Vero Beach into YouTube, the link that we posted yesterday didn’t work.

Our photo today is courtesy of SISP Ranger Ed Perry. Ranger Perry sent us some great turtle photos he took in S. Melbourne Beach in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge. Today’s photo is of a Green Sea Turtle making her way back into the ocean after nesting. Thank you Ranger Perry!
