Sebastian Inlet Report


We have a real pretty morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 9 mph, gusting to 11 and there is a moderate chop on the water. The forecast is calling for a mix of sun and clouds with a chance of rain and winds picking up this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.

With the air and water temperature rising, we are seeing more activity at the inlet. The water is still pretty chilly but it's beginning to climb. The good news is that spring is on its way and the cold water will be gone soon. We're seeing a good variety of species making their way in and out of the inlet. Black Drum, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Blues, Jacks, Speckled Trout and Snook have come over the rails in small numbers but Reds have been shy the past week. 

Our two photos today are courtesy of Justin Mercado of Palm Coast. Justin's little brother Michael was home on spring break from Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island and wanted to do a little fishing and just enjoy being out of the cold weather. Justin suggested driving to the inlet as he has never left disappointed. The men used live shrimp to land their Black Drum. Photo one features Michael Mercado with a 24" Drum he took home and had for dinner.

Photo two features big brother Justin Mercado with the "big brother" Black Drum. Justin's Drum was about 36", he didn't keep it out of the water long enough to measure it before he returned the big boy to the sea.
