Scouting Around - Sebastian
Yesterday the north jetty was wall to wall with anglers trying their luck which created lots of tangled lines. Novice anglers should take the time to read the fishing etiquette, catch and release. The Redfish bite dropped off yesterday but the Black Drum bite continued. Quite a few good sized fish came over the rails for anglers using clams, live and dead shrimp or combos of both. The schools of bait moved on and apparently the big Reds followed. There were a few smaller Blues landed on plugs and a few Sheepshead and Pompano in ones a twos.
Our first three photos today are courtesy of Conrado Ramos of Orlando. Conrado and his wife Cherrie fished the north jetty and reported a great Black Drum bite. In photo one, Cherrie holds a 27" Black drum she landed on dead, stinky shrimp.
Photo two is of Conrado with a beautiful 35" C/R Snook he landed on live shrimp. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo.
Photo three is of Conrado with a real nice 16" Pompano he landed on live shrimp.
Photo four features Jason Blackstone of Indialantic. Jason fished the incoming tide Saturday morning using dead shrimp with a 3/8 oz. egg weight when he landed his 24" Black Drum. Jason reported many Black Drum were landed along with two C/R Snook and a couple of Reds.
