Sebastian Inlet Report
01-20-16 WEDNESDAY: BLACK DRUM, REDS, SHEEPSHEAD, POMPANO, JACKS, WHITING, SPANISH MACKEREL, BLUES AND MARGATE
We have a little warmer morning with less wind today. Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 8 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a light chop on the water. Temperatures should rise into the 60's today but it will still be chilly out on the jetties. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Black Drum have been biting consistently for anglers using live or dead shrimp, clams and cut bait. Monster Redfish have been beating up our inlet anglers; we have lots of folks going home exhausted after getting those bulls to the jetty and over the rails. Reds have been hitting live shrimp, bucktails and various lures. Sand fleas are the best bet for Sheepshead but any crustacean will work. Good sized Blues and Pompano, a few Spanish Mackerel, Margate, Jacks and Whiting are present too.
Our first photo today features Vero Beach native Sheryl Davis. Sheryl grew up fishing the inlet and landed her 33" Black Drum on dead shrimp. This big Drum was Sheryl's personal best.
Our second photo is of Jose Pina of Poinciana. Jose landed his two nice Black Drum using live shrimp.
