Sebastian Inlet Report


We have another beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. There is a nice breeze blowing out of the Northeast at 8 mph and there is a moderate chop on the water. 

The greenies (threadfin herring) have just about disappeared. Mojarra have been doing to the trick for Mangrove Snapper, although not many of those are being landed either. There are still some schools of Jacks and Bonito darting around the jetties but they've not been as prevalent and the Spanish Mackerel have been no-shows. The water has been warming up and also cleaning up. The north side of the north jetty is crystal clear again and the inlet is clean but not as clear. The outgoing tide has been most productive, particularly in the early morning hours for anglers using crabs, Permit in the 8 -15 lb. range have been following them out. Other than that, it's been on the slow side.
Our photo today is from Trudy Suttelle who landed this male Hairy Blenny yesterday, in full courtship mode, bright red! Trudy said she could tell because when she went to throw him back, he winked at her.
