Sebastian Inlet Report
02-09-12 THURSDAY: SNOOK, SHEEPSHEAD, FLOUNDER, BLACK DRUM AND REDS
We have another overcast morning at the inlet. We will see a lot of clouds today but the chance of rain is slim, only 20%. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northeast at 17 mph and there is a moderate chop on the water. Small craft should exercise caution if headed offshore.
The Snook have been cooperative with some slots, oversized and undersized coming over the rails of the north jetty. This morning they are hitting live shrimp. Some good sized Sheepshead, an occasional Black Drum or Pompano will find its way to the inlet anglers. We've seen some good sized Flounder landed off the south side of the inlet as well.
The Sebastian Inlet State Park will be hosting Captain Nick Price who will give a seminar on "How to Fish the Sebastian Inlet and Surrounding Waters". The south side of the inlet at Pavilion # 4 will be the spot to learn which baits to use, when and where to fish, fishing gear recommendations and fishing etiquette. The seminar is free but Park admission fees apply. For more details, go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first photo today is of inlet regular Tony with a beautiful, slot Snook he landed using live shrimp.
