Sebastian Inlet Report
11-15-16 TUESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, BLACK DRUM, SPANISH MACKEREL, FLOUNDER, MARGATE, SHEEPSHEAD, BLUES AND TROUT
The last 500' of the north jetty remains closed until we can get the grates installed. Once they are installed, we will be able to open up more of the north jetty to fishing. Thank you for your patience. The Sebastian Inlet State Park is completely open 24 hours.
We have a real pretty morning at the inlet. It's a little overcast and we have a chance of showers this morning. Winds are blowing out of the West-northwest at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories at this time.
Fall fishing is underway at the inlet. We have a good variety of species that are hitting. We received an update from Charlie Achinelli of Melbourne who reported a real good Bluefish bite in the surf in the Melbourne area and they are headed south toward the inlet. They were in the 18" - 20" range and had sharks following closely behind. Thanks Charlie! We are seeing Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, Trout, Pompano, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum and Margate all over the State Park. Get out and catch some fish today!
Our photos today are courtesy of Stephen Bozzuto of Vero Beach. Stephen and his brother spent a week camping at the Park Nov. 3 - 10 and had a great time. Today's photos were taken November 7th when they landed a slot Red and Black Drum. Photo one is of Stephen with the Red and a couple of the Black Drum and photo two is of their catches of the day.
