Sebastian Inlet Report
01-12-16 TUESDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, BLUES, SPANISH MACKEREL, MARGATE, JACKS, TROUT AND POMPANO
It's a cool, gray morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 10 mph, gusting to 12. There is a moderate chop on the water and we have a chance of rain this morning. Currently, there are no NOAA advisories.
The bite has been fair to good. We received an update and today's photos from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty on Friday morning. Mike reported a slow morning overall. Rain and waves crashing over the jetty kept a lot of people home most of the morning. He fished between 7:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and reported that six or eight Black Drum came over the rails. The same number of Sheepshead in the 12" - 14" range were landed along with a few Black Margate and one Pompano. Luck was with Mike that morning as he landed one 23" and one 26" Black Drum and one of the Sheepshead.
Photo one is of Ron Veser with a healthy 28" Black Drum and photo two features Mike with the 23" and 26" Drum.
