Sebastian Inlet Report




We have another gorgeous morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 2 mph, gusting to 3 and the water is calm. The NOAA forecast predicts winds and seas to pick up again starting tomorrow but it's not predicted to be as blustery as last weekend.

Yesterday the main attraction off the north jetty was Black Drum. The early morning outgoing tide produced quite a few nice fish. The bite died down for a few hours on the incoming tide but picked up again around 11:30. One straggler Permit in the 4 - 5 lb. range came over the rails, a nice surprise. Dick and Dot Kern made it back over from the west coast; Dot landed a slot Pompano and a Black Drum. Nice going Dot.

Our first photo today features David Glasser with a big C/R Redfish he landed using live pinfish on the outgoing tide. David landed this big bull and said he also landed several other Reds and lots of Jacks. 

Photo two is courtesy of Ryland Sacik. Ryland was fishing the beach next to the north jetty when he landed this 24" C/R Snook. He also landed some Jacks and Ladyfish and reported Red and Black Drum and a few Flounder were landed by north jetty anglers.

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 or call 850-487-0554 for more information.
