Sebastian Inlet Report
03-17-17 TGIF AND HAPPY ST.PATRICK'S DAY!
It's warming up and we have a beautiful day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 13 mph, gusting to 17 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Conditions will continue to improve through tomorrow until a cold front moves in Sunday morning which will create poor to hazardous boating conditions. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
Tomorrow should be a good day to get out and do some surf fishing. Pompano are migrating and like to run fairly close to shore in the troughs. Sheepshead, Snook, Reds and smaller Jacks are being landed from the north and south jetties. Pompano are also being landed on the flats along with some Spanish Mackerel and good sized Trout. Get out and wet a line this weekend!
Our anglers of the day are Dave Vermilye of Sebastian and Craig Davis of Burton, MI. Dave and Craig fished the north jetty morning fishing, when they both landed the beautiful Snook in our photo. Both Snook measured 31 7/8" and were just in the slot. The men landed both fish on live shrimp.
