Sebastian Inlet Report

What a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Skies are blue, winds are blowing out of the Southeast 5 mph, the water is calm and the only thing missing are the fish!

Fishing has remained slow off the jetties over the past few days. Mike of Vero Beach was out on the north jetty yesterday and reported a very slow morning. Between 6:00 a.m. and noon Mike saw two small Sheepshead. a couple of Blues and two or three Mackerel on gotcha lures, but that was it for the morning. It was so slow that Mike is considering taking a few days off, which is unusual for him! 
 The other morning  the fog was so thick you could barely see the jetty anglers reported. Fishing from 6:00 a.m. - 8:30 not having much luck except "junk" fish. Chuck moved to Coconut Point (the western tip of the campground) and when the sun came out about 10:00, the Spanish Mackerel and Blues started hitting well. Using spoons and gotcha plugs, Chuck brought in Blues and Macks in the 15" - 17" range, the largest weighing around 2 lbs. A fellow angler who was using cut bait brought in a Jack in the 10 lb range. Chuck said it was a great day of fishing! People forget that there are many places to fish within the State Park; it's not just from the jetties or beaches.  Try your luck from the banks of the river!
