  1. Al Before this last blow I have had really good pompano catches around Sebastian Inlet. Lots of spotted Seatrout also. looks like this Sunday the wind subsides and we get back to a normal flow. Still catching a few Gulf flounder and blue fish inside the Inlet. Big redfish have been off the end of the north jetty but it’s all out warfare between the people on the end of the pier throwing lead at you and fellow boaters with no etiquette. Love your blog Al!
