Sebastian Inlet Report
05-28-13 TUESDAY: ATLANTIC SPADEFISH, JACKS, BLUES, LADYFISH, REDS AND SNOOK
We have a windy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 17 mph and gusting to 22. The water is choppy and small craft should exercise caution.
We had a beautiful weekend, although the fish weren't cooperating very well. Overall, it was slow, but every now and then a nice fish would find its way to one of our anglers. Atlantic Spadefish, Spanish Mackerel, Lookdowns, Blues, Jacks, Ladyfish and a couple of Snook and Reds came over the rails of the jetties, but nothing in large numbers.
Our photo today features Rob Strauss of Melbourne Beach. Rob fished the north beach when he hooked up with a 4' Nurse Shark using a whole mullet. Rob reported other anglers were getting bites but this was the only one brought in during his time on the beach. The Shark was released unharmed right after the photo.
