Sebastian Inlet Report
12-31-15 THURSDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, REDS, C/R SNOOK, PALOMETAS AND LOTS OF TROUT
It's a lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South at 2 mph, gusting to 4 and there is a light chop on the water. NOAA is calling for a slight chance of showers today. The weather forecasters are predicting temperatures of 85 for New Year's Day but we are looking at some rain later in the day that will bring in some cooler weather. It's supposed to get into the 70's over the weekend and through next week but it will come with some rain, so go prepared for it if you head to the inlet.
We received a surf fishing update from Charlie Achinelli who fished the beaches earlier in the week and reported a few Pompano, Whiting and a good run of Palometas that were nice size for the species. The world record is 1 lb. 12 oz. but they are fast, fun fighters! Charlie used small pieces of shrimp for bait. Albert "Red" Weiner, a native Floridian living in CA came back for a visit and accompanied Charlie to the inlet for some Palometas he landed off the north jetty. He is featured in our first photo today.
Rangelo Soriano of Miami made it back up to fish the north jetty with his cousin Edisson Soriano of Vero Beach and friend Travious Major of Gifford. Conditions were rough but Reds and Snook like it that way and the men had great luck with large C/R Redfish. They took one fishing pole each and a handful of bucktails and landed bull Reds one after another. Snook and Tarpon were also in the mix, all hit bucktails. Photo two is of Rangelo with a huge C/R Red.
Photo three is of Travious Major of Gifford with one of his big C/R Reds.
Our last photo is of Edisson Soriano of Vero Beach with a huge C/R Red.
