Scouting Around Sebastian Area

The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. If you like fishing on the north jetty, treat it and others with respect. Boaters: please maintain a reasonable distance from the jetty to avoid tangling lines with the shore-based anglers. 

Conditions are a little calmer today, winds are blowing out of the West at 7 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a light to moderate chop on the water. Unfortunately, it won't last long. NOAA is calling for poor to hazardous conditions offshore. The poor boating conditions are predicted to continue as another period of increasing winds and building seas is predicted into the weekend. 

Flounder are hitting live shrimp, mostly west of the bridge. The bite has been sporadic but Black Drum remain the targeted species from the north jetty. Try using dead shrimp, clams or a combo of both for the Black Drum but please throw your clam shells into the water if you are using fresh clams. If the shells keep piling up, the jetty will have to be closed for cleaning. We're seeing Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel and Pompano come and go. Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather!
