Sebastian News

4/18/18 Wednesday: Blues, Pompano, Reds, Snook, Jacks and Black Drum

We have a fantastic morning at the inlet.  Cool breezes, blue skies, clean, calm water and sun, it doesn’t get much better than that.  The winds have died down as forecasted and this morning we have Westerly winds at 3 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water.  Today and tomorrow look good for boating or surf fishing, by Friday afternoon, conditions will begin to get rougher creating hazardous boating conditions through the weekend.  Get out and enjoy it if you can.

We received our photos today from David Rathburn of MA.  David and his brothers come down several times each year to “visit Mom” but always seem to make it to the north jetty for some fishing.  Dave gets a kick out of seeing the same Blues that he was catching in MA migrate down to Sebastian Inlet for round two.   Although the bite has been slower than usual for his springtime visit, he’s landed a few Snook, Reds, huge Blues and a few nice Pompano.  Nice catches Dave!

Get out and wet a line, be sure to send in your photos and fishing updates!
