Sebastian Inlet Report
03-14-17 TUESDAY: REDS, SNOOK, SHEEPSHEAD, SPANISH MACKEREL, TROUT AND POMPANO
We have a beautiful, crisp morning at the inlet. Temperatures are in the low 60's this morning and winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 7 mph with gusts to 17. The water is choppy and NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 4:00 p.m. today. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
The bite has been sporadic at the inlet. We are seeing bursts of activity then lulls. Yesterday some nice, big Reds came over the rails of the north jetty along with Snook and Sheepshead according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Tommy reports that live shrimp are doing the trick for most species right now. The flats are holding some good sized Trout, Spanish Mackerel and Pompano.
Our angler of the day is Birhan McCalla of Palm Bay. Birhan landed the nice Sheepshead using sand fleas from the north jetty.
