Week of July 5: Lots of Action
Mostly cloudy and breezy today with scattered thunderstorms through the afternoon. Some of the storms may produce heavy rainfall. Highs in the mid-80s…southeast winds 15-20 mph with a 70 percent chance of rain. Conditions will be choppy on the Intracoastal.
Here’s the weekend report from “Snookman” Wayne Landry…the North Jetty is still Spanish mackerel, jacks and bonito on live greenies, small spoons and gotcha lures. C&R snook and reds on live majorra's and croakers. Also, Wayne saw some keeper size mangroves caught on those greenies and majorra's.
On the South Jetty, anglers hooked up with C&R snook, reds and big jack crevalle on live baits, along with sand perch and whiting using cut shrimp.
In the Flood Shoal, there are some snappers being caught along with Spanish mackerel and C&R snook. Wayne had a report of some early "pre-summer run" flounder being caught in the 1-2 lb range there too.
Offshore the bite for the mangrove snappers is still happening in water 90-130 ft using chunk bait. Also, mahi out on both side of the Gulfstream and some cobia are being sighted around the boats where the snappers are being caught. Look for birds and weeds. Tight lines folks!!
Today’s photo is the “Snookman” himself with a summer snook caught on 12 lb tackle at the north jetty using live shrimp.
Send us your pics! We need photos and stories to include in upcoming fishing reports. If you want to be featured with your catch, send in a picture and the details of your fishing trip to the inlet by using the Contact Form on our website. Pictures work best vertical and if you center the person with their catch, leaving room on the sides. We try to publish all the ones we receive.
