Doubled up on TT, plus inshore slam! 12/14, FP inshore report

42 degrees to start the morning at sunrise.

Goal was to hit some flounder spots, but morning tide was already outgoing. Found 0.

As the sun came up, went and sight-fished for tripletail. Caught a few shorts, but did manage a 20" and 22". :cool:

With limit complete, found a ton of sheepshead by the power lines. Picked through some shorts, but did limit out at 15. Small-medium shrimp on 1/8 ounce jighead. Fish fry Saturday before Start Wars with the kids! :grin

Now, its about noon, what next? Checked the crab pots...4 keeper claws!

12:30? Egg-salad sandwich and then ran up to Vero area to a nice deep-water, winter spot among the houses. Proceeded to catch and release (no lie!) 30+ trout, few puppy drums (both red and black), and few snook-lets. All release, and made for the inshore slam! :willynilly

Back at dock by 4:30.

I did not see any pompano skipping :huh, and, miraculously, I did not catch a jack today! :nono

May the Force Be With You this weekend!

    Are you saying your site fishing or triple tail by just driving around and looking for them. Obviously channel markers and crab buoys and traps are what they normally hold on I guess you're referring to that are you just looking for floaters ??

    Thanx I was waiting for that report. I can break out the 10 pounds of sand fleas now I caught last summer.
    Well we just got back couldnt find any permit. 200 pound Tarpon on the end of the line was pretty exciting but that only lasted 10 seconds and 4 jumps.
