02-23-17 THURSDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SHEEPSHEAD, BLACK DRUM, BLUES, JACKS AND MACKEREL
We have a foggy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a moderate chop on the water and coastal showers are possible this morning. Although winds have died down, NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through Friday morning and poor boating conditions will continue into early Saturday morning.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that fishing has been decent. This morning some small Snook were landed and returned. Prevalent species include Snook, Reds, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Blues, Jacks and Spanish Mackerel. A few Pompano and a nice Permit will make an appearance occasionally.
Our first two photos today feature Larry B. from Orlando. Larry landed the beautiful 37" Permit off the north jetty and landed and released the Black tip Shark off the south beach.
Photo three is of Rosezana with the 17" Black Drum, photo four is of Kenneth giving a Silver Jenny a kiss goodbye! Photo five is of Rosezana with a real pretty Sheepshead.
