Today At The Marina:
This morning we are seeing lots of sun shining. Today should be a beautiful day with the high in the upper 50’s. Winds will be out of the east between 5 and 10 MPH. Tonight will be mostly clear skies but a little on the milder side. The low for tonight will be in the upper 40’s, with winds out of the east between 5 and 10 MPH.
Offshore anglers will be looking at some choppy seas today with winds out of the Northeast between 5 and 10 KT, before increasing to between 10 and 20 KT. Seas will be between 3 and 5 feet. Tonight the winds will be East to Northeast between 10 and 20 KT, bringing seas to between 4 and 7 feet. The offshore forecast does not look pretty over the weekends as seas will continue to build throughout the remainder of the week. The offshore bite remains to be Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, and some Mahi being caught on the troll from reports we have gathered. The deep drop trips remain successful with some nice hauls of Black Sea Bass, Barrel Fish, Black Bellied Rose Fish, and Tilefish being brought back to the docks.
This morning the winds will be out of the east between 10 and 15 KT, with seas between 2 and 3 feet. Tongith the winds will remain out of the east between 10 and 15 KT, and seas will continue to be around 2 to 3 feet. The inshore bite remains slow with very few Bluefish still biting. There are reports of some Red Drum biting as well. We are anxiously waiting to see if the Rockfish will make there way down the bay and to us.
Speckled Trout remain the main bite in Rudee Inlet. They are hitting best on either the White or Chartreuse Gulp on a light jig head, as well as some top water artificial baits. There are a few Puppy Drum biting on cut baits as well.
