Week of November 4: Pompano on the Beach, and Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Snook and Reds off the North Jetty

Anglers have been reporting a good Pompano bite on the beach and some nice Black Drum have been coming over the rails on the tip of the North Jetty with clams, frozen shrimp and sand fleas as ideal bait for targeting both.  On the tide changes, Sarah and Tommy have been seeing some nice keeper Snook and Reds.  Your best bet is live shrimp, finger mullet or lures.  Spanish Mackerel have also been biting off the North Jetty on finger mullet or Gotcha lures.

NOAA is calling for predominantly East winds this week and up to 15 knots with seas at 3-4 feet consistently.  Winds slowing towards the end of the week and turning West on Friday.  Temps have been glorious and the cooler weather makes it wonderful out there this time of year – so get out there!

Today, our featured angler is a throwback… At the beginning of the year, Sabita was fishing the North Jetty with her dad when she brought in this good-looking Black Drum.  Way to go Sabita!  Just looks like the two of you were having so much fun and we love that…
