Sebastian Inlet Report


We have another beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 4 mph and gusting to 7. The water is very calm and there is a light chop on the water. No surf this morning, if winds stay out of the West, we could see it build a little this afternoon; surfers should keep an eye on the web cam.

We've seen a lot of greenies in the water along with some small schools of mullet. The greenies have been attracting Spanish Mackerel in good numbers over the past couple of days. We've also seen a smattering of Reds, Mangrove Snapper, Jacks and C/R Snook. A few Flounder and Sheepshead have been landed as well, which is unusual for this time of year, they could be around as the water hasn't gotten real warm yet.

Our first photo today features 11 year old Mark Gargano of West Melbourne who fished the inlet .He landed this Mangrove Snapper while fishing the T-Dock using live shrimp. 
Our second photo features Glenn Jenkins of Orlando. Glenn fished the north jetty and landed a beautiful Permit along with a couple of Bonnethead Sharks and Jacks. The Bonnethead is a small Shark which averages 2 - 5 lbs. This one was pretty big for the species. Glenn released the Bonnethead unharmed.
