03-18-16 FRIDAY: SNOOK, BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, POMPANO AND BLUE RUNNERS
What a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 7 mph, gusting to 10 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Yesterday afternoon the Pompano bite turned on with the incoming tide, about 15 - 20 came over the rails along with quite a few oversized Snook and one or two keepers. This morning the Snook bite was good once again, quite a few hook ups and break offs, a few oversized were landed and released and several slot Snook came over the rails in the early hours. A couple of good sized Black Drum were landed, along with a couple of Sheepshead and Blue Runners.
Our first photo today is of Dave Vermilye of Sebastian and Terry Hammond of MI and FL. The men landed their "twin" slot Snook using live shrimp.
Our next two photos are courtesy of Sally Baughman of Jackson Hole, WY who spends her winters here. Sally has been having a great week with a slot and oversized Snook. I think she's been out there showing the guys how it's done.
Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach is featured in our last photo today. Mike holds an enormous Black Drum that was brought over the rails.
