Sebastian Inlet Report


01-08-16 FRIDAY: TGIF! 

We have a soggy morning at the inlet but there are some waterproof anglers out there taking advantage of the calmer waters. Winds have died down and are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 2 mph and gusting to 6. Winds are predicted to increase late this morning and early afternoon before diminishing again late in the day. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution for seas. The weekend doesn't look that great for our boaters but surfers should be waxing up those boards.

Water temperatures have slowly dropped into a good slot for Pompano and this weekend we could see anglers lining the beach trying for the small, tasty fish. Small in size but big on sass, they can challenge even the most experienced angler using light tackle. The other prevalent species for this time of year include Black Drum, Reds, Sheepshead, Flounder and Blues. Spotted Trout have been thick on the flats and anglers have reported more catches than they've seen in many years. 

We received an update and our first photo today from Christian Kitzmiller of Indialantic. Christian fished the north jetty Tuesday night when he landed the big bull Red on a bucktail. Christian released the 47" beast immediately after the photo and it swam away unharmed. He reports a lot of Tarpon were coming over rails as well. 
Photo two features Jose Pina of Poinciana. Jose makes the long drive over on a regular basis to fish the north jetty. The drive over was very productive for Jose as he landed several good sized Black Drum and a slot Red using fresh shrimp.
