Sebastian Inlet Report
04-28-16 THURSDAY: A FEW SNOOK AND REDS, JACKS, LOOKDOWNS AND TROUT
It's a beautiful day at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 8 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
The bite from the jetties remains on the slow side. A few decent fish have come over the rails for patient anglers during the daylight hours. Fishing in the evenings and low light periods has been more productive. Redfish and Snook have been hitting live baits and lures at night and even a Black Drum or two have been landed in the evening hours according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Welcome back Tommy!
Our angler of the day is Andrew Sampson of Melbourne. Andrew pulled an all nighter Friday night and he reported a slow bite until the tide change then a bunch of good sized Jacks started hitting along with a few Snook but that was it until the morning hours. In the early morning hours Andrew landed an oversized C/R Snook and the 32" C/R Red in our photo. Way to go Andrew!
