Sebastian Inlet Report


This morning we have a mix of sun and clouds over the inlet. The forecast is calling for potential showers so go prepared if you head to the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 12 mph and gusting to 16; there is a moderate chop on the water.

An update from inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach reported that yesterday morning the Snook bite wasn't as strong as Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Winds were blowing strong out of the Southeast and the water was dirty. There were 6 - 8 hook Snook hook-ups and 3 - 4 fish came over the rails between 6:45 -10:00, but all were over the slot and safely returned to the water. Mike reported quite a bit of schooling mullet activity with large Blues and Snook busting them up. The inlet regulars landed a real nice variety of fish yesterday morning and the smorgasbord is featured in our third photo today. When we start seeing this kind of variety, spring fishing is on its way and we should start seeing additional species soon.

Our first photo today features one lucky guy, Spiro Stathopoulos of Malabar, fishing before daylight, Spiro hooked up with the 32" slot Snook and a keeper 27" Red using live shrimp. It doesn't get much better than that! Spiro reported another slot Snook came over the rails before he left along with some large Bluefish. 
Our second photo today features an 11 lb. Bluefish landed by Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach.

Photo three is of a nice variety of species that were landed yesterday morning. From (L - R) is a Jack, Sea Trout, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Whiting, Spottail Pinfish, Sheepshead, Lookdown and a Ladyfish. That's a good sign of things to come!
