Sebastian Inlet Report


It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 7 mph and there is a light chop on the water.

We received an update from Tommy Turowski of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop who reported Mangrove Snapper, Jacks and big Reds were landed yesterday. There are of course, C/R Snook which need to be handled with extreme care as they are spawning. All C/R fish should always be handled with care; we need to take care of those species so they can go out and make more fish! Please lower your C/R fish back into the water from the north jetty via net. If you need a net to get it on the jetty, use a net to lower it back in and don't keep it out of the water long, just a quick picture and back into the sea! Please don't "bear hug" the fish, it wipes the slime off their bodies, always use wet hands when handling.

Our first angler today is Richard Doughman of Melbourne. Richard landed this 31" C/R Snook at night from the north catwalk using finger mullet. This is Richard's first Snook and he hopes to land another when the season opens. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo.

Photo two features Laura Weinberger of Palm Bay with a nice Spanish Mackerel she landed off the north jetty.
