02-20-17 MONDAY: REDS, SNOOK, SHEEPSHEAD, BLACK DRUM, JACKS, POMPANO AND SPANISH MACKEREL
We have a lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are barley moving out of the West, gusting to 2 and there is a moderate chop on the water. A low pressure system that is moving across the state will cause boating conditions to start deteriorating mid-week.
The weekend bite was good according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Tommy reported that Sheepshead, Snook, Reds, Black Drum, Jacks, Pompano and Spanish Mackerel were all hitting over the weekend.
Our angler of the days is Vic D. of Orlando. Vic landed the huge C/R Red using a speckled crab he caught in the surf. This big bull was over 50" and he landed a second big Red within 5 minutes of releasing this one.
The FWC will be hosting the 6th Annual Women's Fishing Clinic on Saturday, March 18th from 9:00 -5:00 at the Sebastian Inlet State Park.
