Wednesday: The bite is slow


Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 9 mph, gusting to 11 and there is a moderate chop on the water.  A cold front is predicted to move through central Florida late this afternoon bringing higher winds and seas.  NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect from 4:00 p.m. today through 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

There isn’t a lot to report, the bite is slow.  Waves breaking over the jetties have kept many anglers at home.  We usually have a good bite going on at this time of year, especially with the winter species which include Sheepshead, Mackerel, Pompano, Permit, Black Drum, Reds and Flounder.

We reached back into the archives for our photo today.  Mike Ricciardi landed these nice Pompano off the north jetty five years ago today.  Those were nice!
