Sebastian Inlet Report
12-21-15 MONDAY: BLACK DRUM, BLUES, SPANISH MACKEREL, SNOOK AND REDS
We have windy conditions at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 14 mph, gusting to 17 and the water is choppy. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported the weekend bite was strong for Blues and Spanish Mackerel. Shiny spoons and Gotcha lures were doing the trick. The afternoon Black Drum bite was decent and around 4:30 on Sunday Reds started hitting bucktails.
Our first photo today is courtesy of Luciano Reboucas. Luciano and two friends fish the north jetty on a regular basis and have nicknamed themselves the "Catfish Crew". Our photo features David Bowen with a 28" slot Snook landed on using live shrimp.
Charles Achinelli is featured in our second photo. Charles fished the north jetty and reported a Black Drum bite. Sheepshead were active and he landed this 12 lb. C/R Snook on a 12 lb. Ande line with live shrimp. Charles also landed a couple of nice Mackerel that day.
Our last photo is courtesy of inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike fished an early morning in late October and captured this colorful sunrise. Thanks for sharing Mike!
