Scouting Around Sebastian Area
The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain 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 saves wildlife and helps limit the number of tangled lines. Limit the number of rods to two at a time. 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 bit of wind to contend with this afternoon but it is a beautiful day with blue skies, white fluffy clouds, clean water and hungry fish. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 19 mph, gusting to 23 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Small craft should exercise caution. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.
Fall fishing is underway and there's no place like the Sebastian Inlet to get out and enjoy Mother Nature's bounty. We are seeing a good variety of species being landed all over the State Park, from the jetties and the Indian River. Black Drum remain the most active species but we are seeing Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Sheepshead, a few Flounder and Trout. Get out and make some memories this weekend!
Our first photo today features 8 year old Caitlin Uhlhorn of Broomfield, CO. when she landed the 22" Black Drum off her Grandparent's dock on the Sebastian River. Caitlin brought the fish to the dock and her father Steve helped her net the big boy!
Rick DiNicola of Miami is featured in our last photo today. Nick came up to fish the inlet and is featured with one of his catches, a large, C/R Red that was released unharmed.
