Sebastian Inlet Report
03-09-16 WEDNESDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK, BLACK DRUM, BLUES, TROUT, JACKS AND REDS
We have another day of cloudy skies, high winds and choppy conditions. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 19 mph and gusting to 22. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through Thursday afternoon.
We're seeing the usual species for this time of year. Black Drum, Snook, Reds, Blues, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Jacks and Trout are all coming over the rails of the jetties. Conditions have been rough for our beach anglers this week so we haven't had any input from them. Anglers have been using sand fleas, clams, live shrimp, spoons, bucktails and Gotcha lures. If you are using clams for bait, PLEASE put the empty shells in the water, do not leave them lying on the jetty. Leaving the shells on the jetty creates a hazard for others and it smells horrific, clean up after yourself.
Our first angler today is Dennis Hollenbeck of DeBary. Dennis was visiting his brother in law Richard Stone and the two men fished the north jetty Dennis landed the 31 3/8" slot Snook while free lining a live shrimp on the incoming tide.
Photo two features Rizkllah Bahmad of Orlando with his first black Drum, ever! Rizkllah was using live shrimp to land this nice fish.
Walter Manning of Palm Bay landed 11 Spanish Mackerel off the north jetty Tuesday using a Gotcha lure.
