11-07-17 Tuesday: A good variety of species are biting!

It’s a real nice morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-northwest at 12 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a light to moderate chop on the water. Conditions are beginning to calm down and we should have decent boating conditions until Friday when it starts to deteriorate once again. We also have a chance of showers this afternoon.

We’re seeing a good variety of species at the inlet. Snook, Reds, Black Drum, Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Lookdowns and a few Blues are beginning to make an appearance. Get out and wet a line!

We received an update from Allan Noel of Melbourne who fished from the north jetty Sunday and Monday. Allan did quite well both days, in spite of the rough conditions and seaweed in the water. He landed two slot Snook, keeping only one and returning the other, a 21″ Black Drum and a 27″ slot Red on Sunday. Yesterday he reported quite a few Pompano and Lookdowns. Thanks Allan!

Our first photo features Allan with the 27″ slot Red he landed using live shrimp and photo two is of one of two slot Snook he landed from the north jetty as well. Very nice Allan!
