Sebastian Inlet Report
03-15-17 WEDNESDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK, REDS, BLACK DRUM, POMPANO, MACKEREL AND JACKS
Brrr....button up anglers, we have a very chilly, windy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 14 mph, gusting to 21 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 4:00 p.m. today. Hazardous boating conditions will continue through today then begin to gradually improve through Saturday. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.
Will this cold front invigorate the bite? To find out, bundle up and get out there and toss a line in the water! We usually see the fish become more active with a change in weather pattern. Sheepshead are the dominant species along with some nice Reds and Snook. Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Trout and few other straggler species are being landed on the flats.
Our angler of the day is Christina Clyburn of Winter Garden. Christina and her husband Randy were fishing the north jetty when she landed the beautiful Permit in our photo. This nice fish measured 21.5" to the fork. Christina was using live shrimp to land her fish.
