Sebastian Inlet Report
12-29-16 THURSDAY: BLACK DRUM, SHEEPSHEAD, JACKS, REDS, TROUT AND BLUES
We have a gorgeous morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 3 mph, gusting to 7 and the water is calm. Winds and waves will start to build this afternoon ahead of a cold front that will move in tonight. Small craft should exercise caution this afternoon and NOAA has issued a small craft advisory from 10:00 p.m. tonight through 10:00 p.m. Friday night. Seas should subside Saturday and Sunday.
Black Drum, Sheepshead, Blues, Flounder, Jacks, Reds and Trout have been hitting sporadically at the inlet; it's just been a matter of timing. Try fishing a few hours before or after the tide change before the velocity picks up for a better chance of landing something. We have had outstanding weather and great conditions this week and there are a lot of anglers out there enjoying Mother Nature. Get out and wet a line!
Our photos today are courtesy of Luke Vila of Kissimmee. Luke and Ed Franceski fished the shorelin and landed quite a few fish on live shrimp including Trout, Jacks and Reds. The men are strictly catch and release anglers, all fish were returned to the water.
Our first photo features Ed Franceski with a nice Speckled Trout, photo two is of Luke Vila with a small Red and our last photo is of Ed with a good sized Jack Crevalle.
