Sebastian Inlet Report
11-28-16 MONDAY: THE BITE IS EXCELLENT!
The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The grates on the tip of the jetty are custom due to the angles but we are working on getting those replaced. At this time we have no time frame but we will keep you posted when we have a date confirmed. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us take care of this wonderful resource. Do not leave your clam shells on the deck, put them in the water. Pick up after yourself; do not leave litter lying on the deck. Put unwanted bait back into the water. Place your used fishing line in the provided containers, it helps save wildlife and helps limit the number of tangled lines. Limit the number of rods to two at a time please, jetty real estate is valuable! DO NOT throw objects at boaters, no excuses. The western gate is a permanent fixture and can be closed at any time; it will be up the users of the jetty.
We have a breezy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East at 17 mph, gusting to 21 and the water is choppy. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through Tuesday morning and poor to hazardous boating conditions are predicted into mid-week.
We had an excellent Thanksgiving weekend according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Many different species were landed including Black Drum in large numbers, some healthy Spanish Mackerel, big Jacks, Snook, Reds, Blues, Sheepshead, Flounder and Pompano! That's a great variety, thanks Tommy! The size limit on Black Drum is between 14"- 24" with a bag limit of five per day per harvester. Anglers may only keep one Black Drum over 24". Please familiarize yourself with the FWC regulations, they can be found at the top right corner of this page along with other useful information.
Our angler of the day is Abner Torma of Kissimmee. Abner landed this nice 25" Black Drum off the north jetty using shrimp.
