Scouting Around Sebastian Inlet
BLUES, JACKS, SNOOK, REDS, POMPANO AND MACKEREL
We have a little wind to contend with this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 11 mph, gusting to 16 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Although there are no NOAA advisories this morning, with 4 - 5' seas and a wave interval of 6 seconds, boating conditions are poor.
Fishing has been fair. Bluefish are still dominating the catches with Jacks coming in a close second. Bluefish must be 12" to the fork (of the tail) with a bag limit of ten per person per day. Please abide by the FWC regulations, our resources are not unlimited. We've been seeing some Snook, Reds, a few Pompano and Spanish Mackerel come over the rails of the jetties as well.
Our angler is Christian Mooney. Christian reported some big Blues up in the Sebastian River where he landed the big fish in our photo. Christian was using 10 lb. braid with a 30 lb. fluorocarbon leader and a topwater lure.
