3/5/18 Monday: Snook, Reds, Sheepshead, Mackerel, Jacks, Blues and Black Drum

Winds are blowing out of the West at 2 mph, gusting to 4 and there is a moderate chop on the water.  Although winds have diminished, seas remain high and hazardous for small craft.  NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through Wednesday afternoon.

The rough conditions over the weekend didn’t keep the fish from biting according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop, it was tough conditions for the anglers but some successes were had.  Snook, Reds, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and a few Black Drum came over the rails for the persistent anglers.

Our angler of the day is David Guttmann of Orlando.  David fished the north jetty on the 27th and although the bite was slow, he was able to take home this 18” Black Drum along with a nice 20” Sheepshead.  Nice catch David!
