Sebastian Inlet Report
02-09-17 THURSDAY: SNOOK, SHEEPSHEAD, POMPANO, REDS AND SPANISH MACKEREL
Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 12 mph this morning, gusting to 22 and the water has a moderate chop. A cold front is moving through this afternoon with increasing winds, creating hazardous marine conditions for small craft. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution today through Friday morning.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports a decent Snook bite this morning. He's been hearing about big Reds, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel and Pompano from the anglers visiting his shop.
Our first photo today features Julio Rosales of Miami. Julio and his wife Mercy paid a visit to the inlet. They were using sand fleas for bait to land his nice Sheepshead. Julio reported that Snook were being landed on the outgoing tide and he landed three good sized Blues near sunset.
Samih Abdelmajid of Orlando is featured in our second photo. Abdelmajid loves to fish and has been fishing the inlet for three years. After trying for three years, he finally landed a Snook in the slot while using live shrimp for bait and he landed a few Black Drum as well. Then Monday afternoon he made it back to inlet to land another keeper Snook, a 30 incher!
Inlet regular Bill Hillman of Kissimmee is featured in our third photo. Bill landed his 25" slot Red.
