Sebastian Inlet Report
03-28-17 TUESDAY: BLUES AND SNOOK
We have a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 3 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds will pick up a little this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that Snook are biting on shrimp this morning, yesterday the outgoing tide produced one slot fish, the rest were catch and release. Bluefish remain the most prevalent species; some nice, big fish have been coming over the rails. If you land and Bluefish and do not want it, please return it to the water, do not leave it on the deck of the jetty. Our resources are not unlimited and nobody wants to pick up after you.
Our photo today features Ryan Wood. Ryan landed his personal best Bluefish. He was throwing a silver spoon from the south jetty in less than desirable conditions; most of us would never have attempted it! Ryan filmed the catch, go to YouTube and plug in RWood Outdoors to see it. Ryan didn't get any measurements on the fish but it was a real beast.
