Sebastian Inlet Report
04-27-16 WEDNESDAY: FLOUNDER, SNOOK, REDS, JACKS
We have a beautiful day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 3 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Winds are predicted to pick up a little late this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
This time of year is usually pretty good for Southern Flounder and we've seen a few but not in large numbers. As the water temperature rises we will see the cold water species numbers start to dwindle like Black Drum, Sheepshead and Blues. April and May are peak months for Whiting and anglers fishing the troughs along the beaches usually have good luck when conditions permit. There could be some Pompano hanging around the troughs as well. Get out and wet line!
Our angler of the day is Jerry Connors of Melbourne. Jerry and his daughter Heather, a UCF student fish the inlet as often as possible. Jerry landed the gorgeous C/R Red in our photo using live shrimp.
