Sebastian Inlet Report
03-03-16 THURSDAY: SNOOK, POMPANO, SHEEPSHEAD, WHITING, BLUES, BLACK DRUM, TROUT AND REDS
It's another lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds are predicted to switch to the Southeast late morning and again to the South in the late afternoon. We will see the water kick up a little with a moderate chop.
Conditions are excellent for fishing! The bite has been on the slow side from the north jetty but there are a lot of other places to catch fish. Charlie Achinelli of Sebastian reported a steady Whiting bite in the surf along with Croakers, Blues, Pompano and a Spanish Mackerel or two. We've seen some nice Sheepshead being landed off the catwalks and T-Dock, Snook, Reds and Trout are being landed on the flats. Get out, wet a line and enjoy the beautiful weather!
Our first photo today features inlet regular Bill Hillman of Kissimmee. Bill landed the beautiful 31.5" slot Snook while free lining live shrimp off the north jetty.
Jorge Irizarry of Kissimmee sent in our second photo. Jorge's wife Maribel landed some real nice Pompano, an 18.75" Sheepshead and the 19" Black Margate in photo two.
James Vann of Melbourne landed the Whiting in photo three using shrimp. James was surf fishing and landed a Pompano and Bluefish as well.
Our last photo is courtesy of Charlie Achinelli. Charlie landed his Pompano, several Blues and a cooler full of Whiting while fishing from the beach.
