Week of February 18: Fishing is spectacular, weather is great…get out there!

A special shout out to our angler of the week Luis Galdamez of Davenport, Florida – one of the friendliest guys we know!  Fishing off the North Jetty last month to celebrate his birthday with friends, Luis caught a massive 45” Black Drum with cut shrimp on a 7’9” rod with a Okuma 4500 spinning reel and a 20-pound test power pro line and 30-pound test leader/circle hook #2.  Way to go Luis!!

We keep hearing that the fishing has been spectacular so get out there and stop by the Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle shop on your way to the North Jetty to say hello to our friends Tommy and Sarah!  They’ll give you the skinny on what’s been coming over the rails and spots at the inlet where the bite is good.  We are still seeing Redfish, Blues, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Black Drum and Sheepshead, and some shrimping off the catwalks at night have been paying off.

The NOAA marine forecast is calling for Southeast winds all week, up to 20 knots earlier in the week, subsiding to 5-10 knots Thursday night and into Friday.  Slight chance of showers all week with seas between 3-6 feet.  Check out our webcam for current conditions.
