Scouting Around - Sebastian
In spite of the rough conditions, fishing in the inlet is good. The water is rough and dirty from the relentless northeast wind. Winds are expected to continue into next week. However, a number of large Black Drum have moved in along with numerous Snook and Redfish. Also, making an early showing are the Flounder roaming around the inlet. Most are being caught on the south side. Of course the choice bait is the live finger mullet. But when the fishing bite is on, many other baits will do the job. A report from yesterday indicated that a big Snook took a frozen shrimp. Night time reports tell us that lures are working on the Snook. If the water is too rough off of the jetties, try some of the calmer back water areas of the inlet or lagoon. It's that time of year when anything is possible in most locations, as the bait is widely scattered.
The photo today shows Zerek Zelmanski, from Celebration, FL, with a nice Mangrove Snapper that he was able to bring over the rail, assisted by his older brother Zach. While everyone else could only manage ladyfish and catfish at the time, Zerek won the prize with this snapper.
