|12-16-11 FRIDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, FLOUNDER AND BLACK DRUM|
SNOOK SEASON IS CLOSED UNTIL FEBRUARY 1st, CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY!!
We have overcast skies at the inlet this morning and we may see some rain late this afternoon and this evening. We have partly cloudy skies forecasted for the weekend as well. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 13 mph this morning and there is a light chop on the water. A small craft advisory remains for offshore. Boaters: Always check the coastal forecast before going offshore.
A lot of Sheepshead have been finding their way onto inlet angler's hooks. There have been some real nice ones landed in good numbers, according to Tommy of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Black Drum continue to hit but not in huge numbers. Flounder are still in the inlet as well.
Rob pictured with three of seven real nice Flounder he landed Wednesday afternoon on the south side of the inlet. Rob said the largest one was eight lbs, but all the fish were nice! Beautiful!
Sebastian Inlet State Park Ranger Ed sent in our next photos, Photo two is of brothers C.J. and Mike who landed 11 nice Flounder in two days. The largest fish is in the 9 - 10 lb range another was 8 lbs and all were real nice fish.
Photo of those Flounder on the cleaning table. From this angle, you can see the thickness of the fish. Very nice!
