Sebastian Inlet Report
11-25-15 WEDNESDAY THRU SUNDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SPANISH MACKEREL, TARPON, BLACK DRUM, JACKS, BLUES, SHEEPSHEAD AND FLOUNDER
Only those that brave the rough conditions will find limited success. Occasional bites will continue in spite of the 25 mph NE winds and up to 11 foot seas. Fishing this week and weekend will be invigorating to say the least. It is usually during these conditions that a few trophy fish are hauled in by the patient anglers. So, get out there and have a Happy Thanksgiving weekend. What is certain is that fish and bait will be moved around to set up an exciting December!
11-24-15 TUESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SPANISH MACKEREL, TARPON, BLACK DRUM, JACKS, BLUES, SHEEPSHEAD AND FLOUNDER
We have dark skies over the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 16 mph, gusting to 22 and the water is choppy. NOAA has issued a small craft advisory through Thursday evening. The extended NOAA forecast looks poor for our offshore boaters. High seas and rough conditions are predicted over Thanksgiving weekend.
Choppy conditions aren't keeping the fish from biting. Reds, Snook, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Blues, a smattering of Sheepshead, Lookdowns, Margate and Flounder have been active. Tarpon have been hitting in the evening hours.
Our angler of the day is Garrett Fertig of Indialantic. Garrett fished the north jetty sea wall when he landed and released his under slot Snook. Garrett used live shrimp on light tackle to land the fish.
