Sebastian Inlet Report

This morning winds are blowing out of the East at 6 mph and the water is nice and calm. It's a little overcast this morning but we expect those clouds to burn off and for it to become a real nice day.

Anglers continue to catch Blues, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Flounder, Reds and Pompano off the beaches and jetties. Some anglers may be getting two species confused as the Palometa and small Permit look nearly the same. The differences are subtle but the Palometa's fins are longer and their bodies are more diamond shaped. The yellow on the underside is nearer the mouth. The Palometa has no restrictions because they have no food value. We suggest throwing them back to be on the safe side, you wouldn't want to be fined for accidentally keeping an undersized Permit. It's always better to err on the side of caution.
