Week of January 28: Reds, Snook, Sheepshead and Blues are biting

Check out one of our favorite photos submitted and our featured angler of the week – Sabita – with a really good looking Black Drum she caught off the North Jetty two weeks ago with her dad.  Way to go Sabita!

Current water temp off the North Jetty hovering around 50 degrees with NNE winds.  NOAA’s marine forecast has a small craft weather advisory in effect through Monday evening with seas at 8-11 feet this morning, subsiding to 6-9 feet later this afternoon.  NOAA calling for winds to slow to 15-20 knots in the afternoon today.  Expect rough on the intracoastal waters as well.  Winds up to 20 knots possible all week with varying conditions and chop on the intracoastal.  Morning low temps in the 50 and 60s all week so stay warm!

Our friend Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle has seen a number of massive Redfish, with Snook, Sheepshead and Blues biting too off the North and South jetties.  A few Black Drums as well, and a few days ago, one angler caught a nice Spotted Trout off the seawall by the north catwalk.  Flair jigs are working great for the oversized Reds during the day and at night, use them for Snook.  Spoons are also working well for mainly Blues and Reds.  Best live bait options are shrimp and sandfleas, with the sandfleas proving especially good for Sheepshead.  Seems that our die-hard anglers have been out fishing because of the weather, but more moderate temps and clear skies are expected this week so get out there!
