Sebastian Inlet Report
12-28-15 MONDAY: BLACK DRUM, POMPANO, TROUT, SHEEPSHEAD, REDS, C/R SNOOK, FLOUNDER, TROUT, JACKS AND BLUES
We have cloud cover over the inlet this morning and NOAA is calling for potential showers today. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 16 mph, gusting to 18 and there is a moderate chop on the water. We had a good variety of species landed at the inlet over the holiday weekend.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a good bite for Whiting and Pompano in the surf, a lot of Trout, Reds, C/R Snook, Sheepshead, Jacks, Blues, Black Drum and Flounder. Small and medium sized mullet are still coming and going.
Kurush Akbari of Palm Bay fished the north jetty before the holidays and reported a very good Black Drum bite from the tip and lots of Pompano on the beachside. He was "walking the dog" on the outgoing tide and the Trout were crushing any lure you threw at them. Trout have been thick on the flats as well.
Our first photo features Mike Currie. Mike fished the inlet a couple of times last week. On the afternoon of the 19th he landed the huge C/R 39" Red in our first photo. The big Red was released unharmed to fight another day. Mike went back a few days later and the bite had slowed considerably. On the 23rd he reported a slow morning, a few Blues and Spanish Mackerel in the early hours and a handful of Sheepshead later. Photo two is Mike with one of the Blues he landed.
