Scouting Around - Sebastian Area

Winds are blowing out of the South at 12 mph, gusting to 20 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. 

The Black Drum bite was back on again yesterday morning. Quite a few were lost to anglers but some nice fish made it over the rails too. Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach fished the north jetty from 7:00 - 12: 00 and landed two good sized Black Drum and two Sheepshead. He reported a lot of Bonnethead Sharks, Lookdowns hitting small white jigs, a few Spanish Mackerel and a couple of Pompano as well. Some of the anglers fishing for Drum using bottom rigs actually landed C/R Snook, they must have been hungry! 

The FWC will be holding at snook symposium on Jan. 13, 2016 in Orlando. The day-long discussion is open to the public and will focus on snook management and research in Florida, including the results of the soon-to-be-released 2015 stock assessment, population recovery following the 2010 cold kill and opportunities for improving snook management. The symposium will be held at the Caribe Royale, 8101 World Center Drive in Orlando. Email Marine@MyFWC.com or call 850-487-0554 for more information.
