Sebastian Inlet Report


Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 18 mph and gusting to 22. There is a moderate chop on the water. There is a small craft advisory in effect through Saturday evening. We finally got some of that rain they've been forecasting and we may see it throughout the day today and this evening. A change in weather pattern and a little rain can invigorate the bite, so don't let it stop you from getting out and wetting a line. 

We're seeing some real nice catches at the inlet. Snook, Reds, Black Drum, Blues, Jacks, Flounder, small Mangrove Snapper have been landed over the past week and there have been large schools of bait fish swimming in, out and around the inlet attracting the various species. 

Our first photo today features David Svensson of Ocala. David loves to go to the inlet and always tries to make it a day or two trip because of the long drive. Fishing before first light until about 9:00 a.m., and then resting a few hours before going back to it again. Then he will fish the next morning before the drive home. Sounds like a great plan! David landed this big Jack using a 4 oz. popper. He landed several big, good fighting Jacks and was ready for some rest afterwards!
Our second photo is Jose Dore of Palm Bay fishing in the morning  with a nice 30" slot Snook he landed using live shrimp. 
Photo three is of Greg Fillenwarth with a big Jack he landed off the north catwalk.
Photo four features Sonny Advincula of Kissimmee with a 26" slot Red.
