Sebastian Inlet Report


Skies are overcast at the inlet this morning and rain is predicted for this afternoon and tomorrow, skies are expected to clear up some by Sunday. The desperately needed rain is going to usher in a cold front so go to the inlet prepared for everything this weekend, dress in layers! This morning winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 10 mph and there is a moderate chop on the water. Always check the coastal forecast prior to going offshore.

Yesterday morning there was a slow bite. From 10:45 - 12:30, several Snook came over the rails; one was 33" which was immediately returned to the water. Russell  A couple of Black Drum,  Whiting and Sheepshead also made appearances during that time

Tommy at the Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop said the bite stayed that way all day, a smattering of everything here and there. Tommy also reported some nice Snook, Reds and Seatrout landed last night. We are hoping to see some increased activity with the coming front. 

The first photo is of Jean Barrett of Melbourne Beach who landed his 31" Snook yesterday on a small live shrimp. 
The next photo is of Neville who landed his Black Drum off the north jetty yesterday using shrimp. 

Learn how to fish the inlet with Capt. Nick Price tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. on the south side of the inlet, Pavilion # 4. The seminar is free, but Park entry fees apply.
