Sebastian Inlet Report
01-06-16 WEDNESDAY: GOOD LUCK OUT THERE!
We have rough conditions at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 17 mph, gusting to 25 and the water is choppy. Waves are crashing over the jetties so be sure to take wet weather gear if you head to the inlet today. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through late tonight.
For those who don't mind the conditions, some nice fish can be landed in the sloppy conditions. Reds, Snook and Tarpon can get worked up when it's like this but you might want to step up your tackle. A little heavier weight will help keep it submerged so you can bounce it off the bottom. Using noisy top water, chugging or popping baits can improve your chances when the water turns murky.
Our first photo today is from Richie Regateiro. Richie and his friend Peter Privitera landed several nice Sheepshead and Margate.
Charlie Achinelli of Sebastian landed the good sized Palometas in our second photo while fishing the beach before the conditions deteriorated.
