Im hoping to give it a shot tomorrow but cant get out till around noon. I have some eels as a backup in case the inlet is too sloppy to get outside. Calling for 2-3 in the latest report.

Looks really good tomorrow. I can fish everyday if tje weather permits. Not a chance in hell was I getting off the couch to fish today. When I see 15-20knot winds out the east, south, or west I stay home. I know there was a great bite today and it should be there in the morning. Catch’em , old man winter is coming. As of now Sunday and Monday look doable.

If the inlet is sloppy a person can head to overlook and then head out straight from the beach without an issue or is there a bar there that will be a problem?

Yep ..you can get out to the west that way as long as there is no whitewater there. Go out along the beach and then hook south into deeper water. Should be no problem with nw wind but you never know.

I will be out in the AM.

Let’s review the VHF code again:

Down 2 means up 4.
East means Southwest but sometimes it means you are at work.
West means we are off the FI Lighthouse.
30 feet means 80 feet.
80 feet means you are not sure where you are
“We are jigging” means you are plugging
Radio check means you are trying to find out where everyone is
We are killing it means you have a solid dogfish bite going.
Answer your phone means someone is avoiding you aka ‘it’s not you its me”

Have fun out there - lets all watch each other’s backs in the inlet if we are there at the same time.
yammi250 and blotb like this.

I’ll be out tommorow. Hitting the inlet at 7am. I’ve been out twice the past 10 days and haven’t had any issues. Sunday I went out at low tide. However, I’m in a smaller CC (23ft)

no luck for me, got a late start 8:30 am. Dogfish city. Didn’t see too many others catching much. Was in 70 feet off the fist pencil. Had some nice marks in about 55-60 feet of water but no takers. Just some more dogs.

Got out of Moriches Inlet at 7:20, trolled for two hours all around the reef. Dragged umbrellas, jigs and mojos and had fish on all. Largest was 28 pounds, a dozen fish in all. Only color that worked on all three lures was green. Back at work by 11:30

Ok folks before I make a report I need to know which one of you this is? Saw this off Demo as we were coming in.

Second- Firefisher I think you almost ran me down, please be careful. Boat approaching from starboard has right of way. All good - I just don't think you saw me? White Everglades, white motor, black pipes, etc?

Got out around 615- ran east. Fish on right away, smaller though. Did pull a nice keeper out though before going further east. So went east, nothing. Came back west, found a pick, then got a call to move - we moved and picked some more. Fish were on top, we threw the bag at them.

Right before we packed up to head for home a boat next to us caught a nice bass, kept it and threw back another fish that they were holding. That fish went belly up immediately, they were trying to revive it with a net- pretty bad. They left it there belly up floating away. It was sad. They continued to fish and then moved. We picked the fish up, 29 inches, tried to revive it but it was dead. We kept it because we only had one in the box. Went over the guys and told them we picked up their dead fish. They shrugged their shoulders and said "Oh it didn't make it?"...pretty bad sport in my opinion.

Scumbags! I'd rather them risking taking a fish over their limit than do that and waste it. I probably would've had some choice words for them after they shrugged it off.

How was the Inlet this morning? Still no dredge in there? Probably heading out both Sunday and Monday, hopefully they hold off dredging for a bit longer.....like Dec 16th.

The inlet was fine this AM. There was no dredge equipment in there.

Avid 24,
Yes that was me in the Regulator. I did not see you at first, was keeping a constant compass heading. But when I did see you approaching from the starboard I throttled down a bit
but not as much as I should have. Sorry about that. Sucks about the dead fish. Some guys just don't care.

I seen something like a pink and white float in the water coming in too but really didn't pay much attention. I take it that was what I seen. LOL, too funny

thanks. They only made less than 10 I believe. I have heard something like 8 or 9. There was one identical to mine in these waters a few years ago, along with a dark blue hull one too. I know the one like mine was sold a few years ago.
