Sebastian News

Monday: Snook, Jacks, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Pompano

Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 5 mph, gusting to 9 and there is a light to moderate chop on the water.  The forecast is for winds to shift to the Southeast this afternoon, bringing us a slight chance of showers.

The bite has been fair.  Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that over the weekend the dominant species were Snook, Jacks and Sheepshead.  A few Pompano and Black Drum rounded out the mix.  The Flounder never really showed up for long this season but we still have a shot at, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Our photo today is from the archives and features retired SISP employee, Barbara Courtney.  Barbara is featured today with a real nice Flounder she landed during a better run a couple of years ago.  That was a real nice catch Barbara!
