Sebastian Inlet Report


What a gorgeous morning at the inlet! Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 5 mph and the water is calm. It looks like a great day for boating, doing some fishing from shore or in the surf. Always check the coastal forecast before going offshore as conditions can change very quickly. Our water temperature gauge has been fixed; the water temperature is 66 degrees this morning. We are happy to have it back up and operational again, thanks to our crew at FIT!

Fishing has been very good the past week at the inlet but that little cold snap really helped turn it on. Snook are all over the place, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Reds, Jacks and Flounder are making a comeback! The bait of choice for everything has been live shrimp. 

Our first photo is of Rob  with a beautiful doormat he landed off the south catwalk. He had no time to get a net, so he flipped the fish to the rocks and ran down to pick it up! Rob estimated this beautiful Flounder to be in the 6 lb range. 
The next photo is of brothers Tony and Ron, both with slot sized Snook landed on shrimp. 

The last photo features Mr. Chi with a 23" Black Drum he landed using shrimp.
