Sebastian Inlet Report


We have wind and overcast skies at the inlet this morning, but not as brutal as yesterday. Winds are blowing out of the East at 16 mph and gusting to 22. The water is choppy and there is a small craft advisory in effect through Saturday morning. Always check the coastal forecast prior to going offshore.

We received an update from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who was on the north jetty yesterday morning battling the elements for a couple of hours. The early morning Snook fishermen hooked up with 3 - 4 fish, but none were in the slot. A lot of Ladyfish were landed by the overnight crowd, Mike reported one keeper Snook in that group. One 26" Red was landed near the beach on the north side and a couple of small Jacks came over the rails as well. Rumor has it that on Tuesday, Diane Buyce of Melbourne did well with Spanish Mackerel using greenies and one nice Flounder was landed by an unidentified angler. 
We also received an update from Brian Clark who spent last Saturday night through Sunday afternoon at the inlet. Brian reported getting lots of bites, but could only manage to land small stuff that he returned to the water. 
Photo one is Brian's monster Hairy Blenny he caught and released. 

REMINDER: Snook season closes from June 1st - Sept. 1st. Friday will be the last day of the season.
