Sebastian Inlet Report
11-27-17 MONDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SPANISH MACKEREL, POMPANO, PERMIT, JACKS AND BLUES
We had a gorgeous Thanksgiving weekend and the crowds at the inlet were intense. People were lined up and down the jetties trying their luck, a lot of boats were out and anglers lined the beaches north and south of the inlet. What a weekend! Fish were cooperating and a good variety of species were landed all over the Park. The surf was decent and surfers were attempting to catch that wedge at first peak while dodging flying fishing gear. Please remember that people go to the State Park for different reasons, everyone has a right to be there and working together is the best solution. Anglers please do not throw lures at passing boats and show courtesy to those surfing the north side.
Anglers landed a lot of Snook, Reds, Jacks and Black Drum. A few Spanish Mackerel and Sheepshead were active and Sheepshead were landed from the T-Dock. Anglers fishing the beaches landed some nice Pompano and Permit and those fishing the rocks west of the bridge had decent luck with Flounder. Now is the time to get out and enjoy the gorgeous weather and great bite!
Jonathan Reese and his son Brenden have been fishing the inlet together the past ten years and the father and son duo spend 100 - 125 nights fishing although they prefer early morning for Flounder. They fished with childhood friends of Jonathan's who were visiting from Maryland. They caught loads of fish including big Reds, Sheepshead, Barracuda, Mangrove and Mutton Snapper and small Flounder. They returned all under and oversized fish but managed a few nice keepers as well. All of our photos today are courtesy of Jonathan. Nice catches gentlemen!
