Sebastian Inlet Report
03-23-16 WEDNESDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK, JACKS, LOOKDOWNS AND BLACK DRUM
What a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet! Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 8 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories today.
The bite was on the slow side this morning. This morning there were two slot Snook landed and one short that was returned. Quite a few Lookdowns were landed, one keeper Black Drum and two monsters. A seasoned inlet regular landed the first one that was around 50 lbs. He didn't even bother to take it out of the net, he returned it to the water breed. Another angler landed the other fish within five minutes of the first; he returned it to the water as well. Once the fish get that large they are tough and wormy but they are good breeders so those anglers did the right thing! We need more conscientious anglers, way to go gentlemen. Six or eight Sheepshead were landed on shrimp and clams, a school of good sized Jacks came through and seven or eight came over the rails.
Our first photo today features inlet regular Tony Swiderski of Sebastian. Tony landed his slot Snook from the north jetty while free lining live shrimp.
Photo two features winter regular Sally Baughman of Jackson Hole, WY. Sally landed the slot Snook along with several others.
