Sebastian Inlet Report

It's a gorgeous morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 4 mph and the water is calm. Winds will probably increase this afternoon, but we will still have a pretty day ahead of us. 

We received an update from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty yesterday from 9:00 - 1:30. Mike reported 3 or 4 Pompano landed on the outgoing tide, along with two very large Flounder. The Pompano were landed on shrimp and clam combo and the Flounder were landed on finger mullet. Two slot Snook were landed, free-lining shrimp. The Mackerel bite was slow, but Diane Buyce of Melbourne landed one and Mike had one that he lost while trying to hoist it over the rails. The Mackerel were landed on live shrimp and a bobber about 3' up from the bait. 
Jay Cotterell of Western Australia is featured in our first photo today. Jay had a wonderful time at the inlet  and said it was an amazing experience. Jay landed 2 Sheepshead, 2 jacks and the Lookdown in the photo. Jay also had 6 big Blues break off the line. Add a massive school of mullet getting herded by Snook launching out of the water, it was quite a morning! Jay reported that fishing the inlet will be a morning he'll never forget and will tell stories for years to come.

Our second photo today features Larry Robison of West Melbourne with a real nice 26" Redfish he landed  from the north jetty. 

Our third photo is of Willy Sarthou of Orlando with a big Jack and a Spanish Mackerel. Willy landed the Mackerel on a Gotcha lure and the Jack on live shrimp. 

Our last photo today features Tim Pishdad of Viera. Tim fished the north jetty. This big Blue weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. and was taken on a piece of cut mullet about 9:45 a.m. .
