Sebastian Inlet Report


Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 3 mph this morning and there is a light chop on the water. There is a small swell out there for the surfers this morning. As always, please use caution when casting into the surfing area when surfers are present. 

The water clarity isn't as good due to all the runoff from the rains. The past few days we've been seeing schools of Blues making appearances, the cold water up-welling must have brought them back. Spanish Mackerel and Bonito have been darting around in the inlet, cutting off lots of lines, frustrating anglers and some are being landed! Mangrove Snapper, Jacks, Reds and C/R Snook have been present as well. Snook are spawning, please handle with care! This morning we received an update from Diane Buyce of Melbourne who reported a slow morning. A few Spanish Mackerel and Mangrove Snapper are coming over the rails and a young man landed a 30" C/R Cobia on the ocean side! 
Our first photo features Zack Bowling with a beautiful Permit he landed off the north jetty using a blue crab. 
Our second photo today is of Keith Pochy who landed this C/R Snook  using a bomber lure. Keith was fishing the rocks and released the Snook into the Tide Pool to recover. 
Our third photo today is courtesy of one of our web cam technicians at Erdman Video, Nick Malinguaggio. Nick was on the north jetty tweaking our new web cam on Saturday and took a stroll out in time to catch this photo of an unidentified angler who had hooked a big Bonito in the side.
