Sebastian Inlet Report
02-07-12 TUESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, FLOUNDER, BLACK DRUM AND SHEEPSHEAD
This morning we have a gray, overcast day at the inlet. There is a light chop on the water and we have a good chance of intermittent showers today, so throw some rain gear in the car if you head to the inlet.
The Sea Trout bite has been pretty good in the Indian River; the south side of the inlet has been producing some nice Flounder for a select few. We have seen some Snook, Reds, a couple of Black Drum and Sheepshead but overall it hasn't been real active at the inlet. Live shrimp has been working for most species but the Black Drum will usually take clams. Sheepshead like to use their teeth on the "crunchy" baits, shrimp, clams, sand fleas and small crabs will work. Reds like crabs as well, float them along the top to see a Red pop up and grab it! Reds will also take spoons, topwater plugs, poppers or plastic tail jigs.
Our photo is of an unknown angler fishing from the rocks in the tide pool. A long line of Pelicans are hoping for a meal as well.
