Sebastian Inlet Report
03-26-15 THURSDAY: BLUES, BLUES AND MORE BLUES, SHEEPSHEAD, TROUT AND LOOKDOWNS
We have a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 7 mph, gusting to 9 and there is a moderate chop on the water. We have a chance of showers later today but right now, it's great! There are no NOAA advisories at this time.
We have the Blues. Blues, Blues and more Blues! Yesterday morning there were lots of Bluefish coming over the rails, a few anglers caught fish after fish after fish and most of them were good size. One large Spotted Trout was landed from the north catwalk along with Lookdowns and more BLUES. Several good sized Sheepshead came over the rails, anglers were using sand fleas, clams and shrimp. One Margate was landed as well, but Blues ruled the morning hours on the north jetty.
Our first photo today is courtesy of Dennis Wickens. Dennis sent in the photo of Brendon Vaughn of New Hampshire. Brendon only had one night to fish the inlet during his visit. The start of the evening brought Jacks and Ladyfish but when the tide turned to outgoing, everyone started landing big, bull Reds from the south jetty. Brendon landed the only slot Red of the night, it was exactly 27". He was using live mullet to land this perfect, multi-spotted, slot Red.
Photo two features Logan Langston. Logan fished the early morning shift on the north jetty when he landed this huge C/R Redfish around 2:00 a.m. Logan reported that everyone on the jetty was surprised with the size of this monster, it almost looked prehistoric! The Red was released unharmed right after the photo.
