Sebastian Inlet Report
03-21-13 THURSDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, BLACK DRUM, BLUES, JACKS, REDS AND SEA TROUT
Things cooled down over night last night and it's pretty chilly on the jetties this morning. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 12 mph and gusting to 17. Small craft should exercise caution.
Sheepshead and Black Drum are still the most prevalent bite off the jetties. A nice school of Reds will make an appearance now and again and Jacks and Blues are being caught as well. Smaller Flounder and some good sized Sea Trout are being caught in the inlet and on the flats.
Our angler of the day is Matthew Turnmeyer of Melbourne. Matthew and his buddy Kevin Ferris were fishing the north beach on Tuesday when this bad boy hit a chunk of bonito. Matthew reported it took an hour to bring this heavy Bull Shark to the beach; it was one of the biggest thrills of his life! After the photo and with the help of Kevin, Matthew released the Shark unharmed.
