Sebastian Inlet Report

It's another fabulous day at the inlet, winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 4 mph this morning and there is a light chop on the water. We have a wonderful weekend in the forecast, try to get out and do a little fishing!

Fishing was slow yesterday but what a great day to be at the inlet. In the morning hours anglers caught Black Drum off the north jetty using shrimp, a few small and keeper Blues were landed on silver spoons and a couple of short Pompano came over the rails. That was about it for the north side. The south side had a little better action but overall, it was slow as well. Good sized Blues in the early morning hours, a couple of nice Pompano, a couple of Sheepshead and Whiting were landed by a few fishing the south jetty. Those anglers fishing the late afternoon incoming tide have had better luck than those fishing the outgoing tide.
Some real nice Reds have been hitting in the late afternoon and evening hours.  Anglers took advantage of some great weather Tuesday night and ended up pulling in 21 oversized Reds and 1 keeper, what a night! The men netted pinfish at the boat ramp for bait you didn't have to go far to land beautiful Reds. The oversized Reds were between 35" - 40" and weighed between 30 -35 lbs..

The tide pool restoration project is moving along quickly and we could see it reopened to the public in just a couple of weeks. It's going to be really nice!
