Sebastian Inlet Report



We have overcast skies this morning. The wind is blowing out of the Northwest at 12 mph and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. 

Black Drum and Sheepshead remain the prevalent species coming over the rails of the north jetty but not in huge numbers. Anglers using sand fleas are nailing some good sized Sheepshead while dead shrimp and clams or combos of both are attracting the Drum. Spoons and bucktails have produced a couple of oversized Reds and big Blues. Occasionally a school of Pompano will come through then disappear. Midsized Flounder in the 4 - 6 lb. range have been coming through and the cooler weather has brought in a few (emphasis on few) up to 8 lbs., some smaller Margate round out the mix. 

Our first photo today features Eric Balcerzak. Eric is a native of Boca Raton who now lives outside of Charlotte, NC. Back for a visit, Eric tried his luck at the inlet and landed the C/R Snook off the south jetty about 6:15 p.m. using a super pogey Rapala. This lure is particularly good on windy days with murky waters although Eric said he threw everything in his tackle box that day! The Snook was released unharmed. 

Photo two is of a large Sheepshead Eric landed while fishing the mangroves earlier in the day.
