02-24-16 WEDNESDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK AND JACKS
We have gray skies over the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the South at 15 mph, gusting to 21 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for the winds to increase even more this afternoon and has issued a small craft advisory that is in effect through late Thursday night. We have a chance of rain and thunderstorms today; go prepared for it if you head to the inlet.
Yesterday the bite fell off a bit. We heard that a rare, real nice Cubera Snapper came over the rails in the early morning hours along with a couple of slot Snook. In the afternoon hours one Snook was lost to a break off, only three Black Drum were landed and a couple of Sheepshead. A lot of small Jacks were landed and returned to the water. Please familiarize yourself with the FWC rules and regulations. They can be found at the top right corner of this page. Know your bag limits and size restrictions. Read the rules of suggested etiquette to make your fishing experience better.
Our first angler today is Bryan Demieville of Jacksonville. Bryan landed his first Snook ever, a perfect 32" and 11.5 lbs., while on his first trip to the Sebastian Inlet. Bryan was free lining live shrimp from the north jetty when he landed this beauty.
Photo two features Angel Camejo with a 26" Black Drum that he released right after the photo.
Our last photo is courtesy of Sally Baughman of Jackson Hole, WY. Sally was on the north jetty Monday morning and captured the beautiful sunrise. That was all she captured, she reported a slow Thanks Sally.
