Scouting Around Sebastian Area
Conditions are a little calmer today. Northeast winds are blowing at 11 mph, gusting to 18 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Northeast swells are creating poor to hazardous boating conditions near inlets, particularly on Wednesday. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.
The Snook bite remains strong. Anglers using shrimp are having the best luck. Bucktails work well for artificial bait. Reds are active along with Flounder, Sheepshead, big Jacks, Spanish Mackerel and Pompano. We should start seeing more Black Drum show up when the water temperature cools down more, although a few have already been caught.
Our photo today is courtesy of Mark Needham. Mark, Tara Andrews and Donna Bishop of Melbourne fished the north side when they got into a fantastic Snook bite! Mark reported many Snook were being landed, most were in the slot. The trio each kept one slot Snook and returned the others to fight another day.
