Sebastian Inlet Report
12-15-15 TUESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, SPANISH MACKEREL, BLUES, JACKS AND FLOUNDER
SNOOK SEASON IS CLOSED DECEMBER 15 - JANUARY 31.
We have a stellar morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 6 mph, gusting to 9 and the water is calm. Conditions are perfect for getting out, wetting a line and enjoying the beautiful weather.
The bite has been good. We are still seeing quite a few Snook and Reds due to the warm water temperatures; they haven't had to seek warmer havens up in the rivers. Black Drum and Sheepshead are hitting clams and live shrimp, the incoming tide has been best for Drum. Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel have been hitting Gotcha lures but shiny spoons will work as well. We've yet to see any doormat Flounder but some in the five to six pound range have been landed. Spotted Trout have been active on the flats.
Check out the huge bull Red landed by R.J. Hoffman in our first photo today. This 37" bull was landed off the north jetty and was released unharmed.
Our second photo is courtesy of Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike landed four Black Drum and two Sheepshead off the north jetty.
