Sebastian Inlet Report


Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 13 mph, gusting to 17 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds are predicted to shift to the Northeast late this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. 

Conditions were very rough on Saturday, not a lot of folks were out fishing in the cold. Sunday brought less wind and a little warmer temperature and more people out fishing. The Black Drum bite was very good on Sunday, according to Rich Blum who made a rare weekend appearance yesterday. Rich showed up on the north jetty around 10:00 a.m. and headed toward the tip but didn't get very far when he saw a lot of good sized Pompano coming over the rails. He threw in his line with a piece of clam and got hit immediately by a 24" Black Drum which was followed by four Pompano in quick succession. The action was steady until he left around 2:00 p.m. with his limit of large Pompano and two Drum at 22" and 24". Rich never made it out to the tip but heard they did well also. Thanks for the update Rich! 

Our photos today feature Chris Bishop. Using jigs on MLK, Jr. Day he landed the big C/R Reds in photos one and two. The big Reds were released unharmed right after the photo.
