Week of April 1: Bluefish and Snook primarily, but Flounder and Sheepshead in the channel too

Fishing was great this weekend at Sebastian Inlet and there was a lot of action we’re told.  Bluefish and Snook are biting off the North Jetty.  Use Got-cha lures and silver spoons for best results.  Our friend Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle has been seeing some big Reds, Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, Sheepshead and Flounder too.  Try for the Flounder and Sheepshead west of the bridge in the channel.  Rubber-tailed jigs have been working well for the Flounder and Sheepshead are biting on live shrimp and sandfleas.  Go see Tommy or Sarah for the latest action!

Our thanks to Ed Nunez, our featured angler of the week for sending in this picture of a Black Drum he caught by the North Jetty on a trip to the inlet!  Way to go, Ed!

Current winds out of the NE at 13 knots, holding at 70 degrees and a bit cloudy.  Winds this week expected to peak at 15-20 knots with seas at 4-5 feet per the NOAA marine forecast.  East winds tonight and West winds tomorrow, turning Northeast and East towards the end of the week with some chance of showers.  For all of you that check out webcam before you head out, please bear with us as we fix a sensor that has been intermittently down.  Only humidity and dew point sensors are affected, all other data is current.

Have fun out there!
