Good Morning, The wind has been brutal the last few days so not really an offshore report hopefully it will lay down soon. Inshore the trout bite has been good on soft baits to the north around island with a few redfish mixed in. The snapper bite around the bridges on live shrimp with a few pompano and flounder mixed in. The jetty has had a few nice snook and flounder around live shrimp has produced the best. Christmas is only 2 days away so stop on in and get your last min gifts we have AFTCO clothes yeti stuff Cotsa and Maui Jim sunglasses which make great gifts for everyone. Todays weather
Synopsis: A strong southerly breeze this morning will quickly shift to the west-southwest by mid day as an occluded front extending from a gale center over north Florida moves rapidly east across the waters. Winds and seas will diminish slightly from late afternoon through tonight behind the front. However, as the gale center moves slowly away from the southeast U.S., northeast winds will push large swells back into the local Atlantic through mid week, causing poor boating conditions to become hazardous once again. Boating conditions will remain poor through late week as moderate swells linger over the waters.
Quick, offshore-moving, showers and lightning storms late this afternoon and evening, especially north of Sebastian Inlet, could contain very gusty winds and large hail.
