03-07-17 TUESDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK, REDS, BLACK DRUM, FLOUNDER, MACKEREL AND BLUES
It's another windy morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 18 mph, gusting to 23 and the water is choppy. NOAA has extended the small craft advisory through this afternoon but conditions should start settling down later today.
We are seeing the usual cast of characters come over the rails of the jetties. Sheepshead remain the dominate species. Anglers using medium to small shrimp and sand fleas if you can find them, are having the best luck. Small crabs and clams are also good choices. Snook and Reds remain active as well as a few Black Drum, Mackerel, Blues and Flounder. Get out and wet a line!
Our angler of the day is Pete La Rosa of Sebastian. Pete tries to get out in his boat as often as he can to fish the inlet. Pete has been having good luck with Flounder using mud minnows. Pete also has been catching some Blues and Black Drum to round out his Flounder catches.
