Sebastian Inlet Report


We have variable light winds this morning that will increase and become East this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories but we have a good chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Pack accordingly if you head to the inlet today.

The weekend fishing was very good according to Tommy Turowski at Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. A lot of Snook and Reds came over the rails of the jetties. We're still seeing a lot of Snapper as well. Spanish Mackerel come and go, zipping around breaking off lures. Tommy said he's seeing Blues along the beach but they haven't been landed from the jetties yet. We have plenty of baitfish in the water. It's a good day to get out and wet a line!

Our photos today are courtesy of Ron Gruschow of Sunrise, FL. Ron met old friends Frank Masiello of Monroe, GA and Frank Kneuer of Senoia, GA in Sebastian for a week of vacation. The men grew up in south Florida and came to the inlet as teenagers and thought it was the perfect backdrop for a reunion, bringing their wives along this time. Huge bait pods were rolling in and the predators were actively seeking them. They all had a great time fishing the inlet; they landed Snook and Reds all week long. What a great way to reconnect with old friends!

From Todd / Eric @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

INSHORE:  Snook fishing remains hot inshore, with lots of fish following the mullet schools.  Lowlight periods or nighttime has been the best for the snook.  Live mullet is the top bait choice right now, while larger mullet like lures and swim baits are the way to go for artificial lures.  The bridges are holding a lot of snook at night, with the outgoing tide being the best.  The small juvenile tarpon are following the finger mullet schools as are some big jacks.  Look for the bait schools...the predators surely aren't going to be far behind.  
SURF/PIER:  The mullet run continues in full effect, with lots lots of predators in tow.  The tarpon and sharks are putting on a good show, while some big snook are not far behind either.  Jacks, bluefish, spanish mackerel, and others are also in the mix with the mullet.  A few pompano are starting to be caught along the beach.  The Juno Beach Pier has had a mixed bag of spanish mackerel, snook, jacks, and even a few nice kingfish.  Forecast looks like we may see a little swell this weekend, and that could really help fire up the fishing.

From Capt. Charlie @ Fishing Center - Ft Pierce

We have enjoyed some fantastic weather lately along the Treasure Coast. There are still those afternoon thunderstorms, but the mornings have been picture worthy with the sunrises. Temperatures have begun to mellow out a little as the fall transition continues. The fall mullet run is full blown with bait schools all over the area. It's a great time of year to enjoy the fishing!
  The trout bite has been up around Harbor Branch lately. Watch for bait schools being crashed and fish the edges. Live shrimp on popping corks or DOA shrimp have worked best for us. Early mornings, try a top water lure on the grass flats. Our redfish have been on the flats and under the mangroves. Eva caught her first one when we found a school of reds on the flats and the second was hanging under the mangroves. Snook fishing has been best at night around the inlets, bridges and sea walls. Docks have been holding some nice size snapper and sheepshead.
