Thanks to everyone who has been sending in pics and details from their fishing trip to Sebastian Inlet!  The Contact Form on our site is back up and running so send us your info if you want to be featured as angler of the week…

Getting reports of Black Drum, Sheepshead, Snook, Redfish and Pompano at the inlet with folks fishing from the beaches, jetties and catwalks with good success.  Check out this massive Black Drum caught by our angler of the week – Leonardo Tzitzios - while fishing the North Jetty last Sunday.  “My personal best Black Drum…caught on clams.”  Way to go Leonardo, that’s the largest drum I’ve ever seen!

Try the outgoing tide if your targeting Snook and use shrimp, bait fish or your top water lures to reel them in.  Redfish are biting throughout the inlet and around the jetties.  Use shrimp, clams and sandfleas.

Anglers have been sending in reports of Sheepshead and Pompano too, and really all of the different fishing areas have been productive – beaches, North and South jetties, catwalks.  Don’t forget to check out the T-dock on the Southside too if you want to drop a line.

Chance of rain and warmer daytime temps through Wednesday, but starting Thursday through the weekend, the weather looks G-R-E-A-T!  Lows in the mid-40s with daytime temps in the 60s.  Sun, sun, sun and no rain on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Perfect time to visit!

If you want to be feature as our angler of the week, use the Contact Form to send us the details of your catch with photos (horizontal and vertical, please), and check out the Sebastian Inlet District webcam for real-time weather, conditions and tide charts to plan your visit to the inlet.  Have a great week!
