Sebastian News

Wednesday: Pompano!

We have another stunning morning at the Sebastian Inlet.  Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and the water has a light chop.  Get out and enjoy the beautiful day!

The word of the day is POMPANO!  Cooler water and calm conditions make surf fishing for the highly desired species and easy choice.  Sand fleas are one of the best baits but small crabs, live shrimp, clams and cut squid work well too.  Pompano will also hit smaller jigs. A few Black Drum, small Blues, Reds and Jacks are being landed from the north jetty in small numbers.

Our photos today are courtesy of Justin Foster of Satellite Beach.  Justin and his dad Dennis fished the south beach December 9th and they limited out with six nice Pompano each, while fishing the high tide.  Justin got back out on north beach on Sunday the 17th and got his limit of six using sand fleas.  Our featured photo is of Dennis Foster and photo two is of Justin.  Very nice gentlemen!

Send in your photos and fishing updates!
