Scouting Around Sebastian
BLACK DRUM, POMPANO, SHEEPSHEAD, REDS, SNOOK, TROUT AND FLOUNDER
It's a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 10 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. The wind and waves will start building late this afternoon and NOAA is calling for a small craft advisory this evening through late Friday night.
We are seeing the usual cast of characters biting for this time of year. The Black Drum bite remains good from the north jetty along with Pompano, Blues, Reds, Snook, Trout, Flounder and Sheepshead. Crustaceans such as sand fleas work well for Pompano and Sheepshead. Live shrimp and bucktails are working for Snook and Reds. Blues will hit just about anything. Black Drum prefer clams or dead, stinky shrimp.
Our first photo today features inlet regular Richard Pearce of Sebastian. Richard landed the 25" Black Drum off the north jetty using clams.
Bob Mann is featured in photo two with one of many giant Reds he landed and released!
Mark is featured in our last photo with one of the huge C/R Reds he landed.
