Sebastian Inlet Report


TGIF Anglers! It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. The wind is blowing out of the West at 10 mph this morning and the water is calm. We have a real nice weekend forecasted, get out and do some fishing!
Fishing has been on the slow side this week although we've seen some real nice catches; they have been few and far between. Blues and Jacks have been most active during the daylight hours but an occasional Black Drum, Red Drum, Sheepshead, Pompano or Mangrove Snapper made an appearance. Night time anglers have been having good luck with Jacks, oversized Reds and C/R Snook. When photographing catch and release species please hold them with both hands, horizontally, while cradling their stomachs to help ensure their survival. Do not hold them vertically or by the gill covers. 
Shallow water Grouper season will reopen on Sunday, May 1st after a four month closure. The Federal water closure (beyond 9 miles from shore) will be extended at least until June (yet to be determined). Goliath Grouper are still a protected species and the open season does not apply to them.
