Sebastian Inlet Report
04-12-16 TUESDAY: BEAUTIFUL DAY AT THE INLET!
It's a lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds have calmed down significantly and it looks like a great day to get out and do a little fishing. Although the bite has been on the slow side, conditions like these are perfect for getting out and enjoying Mother Nature at her finest. Winds are blowing out of the South at 2 mph, gusting to 4 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
We're seeing a few Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Blues, Pompano, Whiting and spring Flounder at the inlet. The flats are holding Speckled Trout. The Black Drum Bite has fallen off but last week there were a couple of monster sized fish that were returned to the water and few good sized fish landed by inlet regulars.
Our first photo today features Mustapha Oufaaiz with an enormous Black Drum he landed on a small shrimp! The big fish was released healthy to the water. Even though the regulations say you may keep one Black Drum of five over 24", it's best to let the huge breeders go; they are tough and often wormy.
Photo two features Chuck Fischer of Satellite Beach with a 27" Black Drum he landed off the north jetty.
