SEBASTIAN INLET REPORT
02-16-16 TUESDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, FLOUNDER, SNOOK, REDS, SPANISH MACKEREL, TROUT AND POMPANO
After a stormy early morning, the late morning is shaping up to be gorgeous. Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 4 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA issued a small craft advisory that is in effect through 10:00 a.m. today. Winds are predicted to decrease this afternoon and the water should smooth out. It could be a nice afternoon to go surf fishing!
We are seeing the usual cast of characters at the inlet. Fish species include Black Drum, Sheepshead, Reds, Flounder, Snook, Blues, Pompano and Spanish Mackerel. Anglers fishing the flats are seeing quite a few Speckled Trout and a few have been landed off the jetties. Flounder are being landed from the shoreline, off the catwalks and some even from the jetties. We are seeing a few in the eight lb. range but the really huge doormats haven't arrived yet.
Our anglers today are Richard Regateiro and Peter Privitera of Polk County with two healthy Flounder they landed off the south jetty on the incoming tide.
