Sebastian Inlet Report
05-18-16 WEDNESDAY: LOOK, IT'S A PERMIT!
We have overcast skies at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the South at 9 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Winds are forecasted to decrease this afternoon but thunderstorms are expected.
The bite remains slow but our angler of the day gives us hope! Richard Pearce of Sebastian landed the beautiful 11.5 lb. Permit in our photo using his usual frozen bionic shrimp. Richard is one of the luckiest inlet regulars; he can walk out to the north jetty when nobody is landing anything and have something on the hook within minutes! Hopefully we'll see more of these delicious fish as the water temperature rises!
