Sebastian Inlet Report
02-21-12 TUESDAY: SNOOK, SHEEPSHEAD, BLACK DRUM, REDS, FLOUNDER, SEA TROUT, JACKS, SMALL POMPANO AND A COUPLE OF BLUES
It's another beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing at 3 mph out of the West-Southwest and there is a light chop on the water. A small craft advisory has been issued for seas and hazardous conditions may occur near inlets; boaters should exercise caution.
Snook, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Reds, Flounder, Sea Trout, smaller Jacks, and an occasional Pompano or Bluefish have been making appearances. Live shrimp remains the bait of choice for jetty anglers. We received an update from inlet regular Mike who fished the north jetty on Friday and reported he missed the early morning bite from 5:00 - 6:30 a.m., but it produced 6 - 8 slot Snook in addition to under and oversized Snook. Mike's first cast produced a nice 22" Black Drum but his prize of the day was the beautiful, big Sheepshead in our first photo today. Mike landed the 7 lb, 22" Sheepshead on live shrimp.
In photo two, also provided by Mike , is Red of Melbourne. Red landed an oversized C/R Snook before landing his 31" keeper Snook. .
