4/2/18 Monday: Sheepshead, oversized Snook, Blues, Jacks and Black Drum

We have a very nice morning at the inlet, no winds to speak of and the water is calm.  Conditions are great for getting out and doing a little fishing.  Conditions are forecasted to remain calm through late Wednesday when another front will pass through bringing us higher winds and seas.

Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet District reported a very busy weekend at the State Park.  Visitors were packed in enjoying the beautiful weather, especially Easter Day!  We couldn’t have ordered better weather.  Unfortunately, the bite was only fair.  Oversized Snook and Sheepshead were the dominant catches with a smattering of Blues, Black Drum and Jacks rounding out the mix.

Our angler of the day is winter regular Rich Blum.  Rich landed his Black Drum and Redfish last week off the north jetty using shrimp.  Very nice Rich!
