Sebastian Inlet Report

                                                                                           Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 8 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water.  We have a slight chance of showers this afternoon.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported an incredible Saturday over the weekend. All kinds of species were hitting most of the day.  Sunday the wind picked up again and shut down the bite.  This morning we have a lot of anglers on the north jetty hoping to get some of that Saturday action back into play.  It’s a lovely day to just get out and enjoy the beautiful weather!
Our photos today are courtesy of Rich Blum.  Rich is back for the winter and his son Brian was able to come this past weekend from Huntersville, NC to do some fishing.  Rich said the bite really turned on midmorning Saturday as did the competition for space.  The dominant species were Black Drum.  Rich said at least 30 came over the rails while they were there.  Most of the drum were over 28”.  Rich landed the good sized Drum in our photo after losing two.    Sheepshead, Snook, Whiting and Pompano were in the mix as well.  Brian’s Snook was 33” and had to be gently released but he was thrilled to have landed it!  The men were using a variety of baits, shrimp for the Snook and clam and shrimp combos for the Black Drum.
