Sebastian Inlet Report
03-21-16 MONDAY: SLOW BITE
We have a blustery morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 24 mph, gusting to 30 and the water is rough. NOAA has issued a small craft advisory through this evening.
The high wind is keeping most anglers off the jetties this morning. Fishing was on the slow side over the weekend; quite a few Catfish came over the rails. Sunday morning the Snook bite was decent again according to Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. A few Sheepshead and a couple of Black Drum were landed along with a few Blue Runners.
Our angler of the day is James Wilder of Clermont. James was fishing the north jetty Friday morning using a light weight rod and live shrimp. He hooked up and landed this heavy, 32.5" C/R Snook and by the time he got it over the rails, he was feeling it! After finding the fish 1/2" too long, he released it unharmed.
