Sebastian Inlet Report


It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 5 mph and the water is calm. We received an update from inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty yesterday morning through early afternoon. Mike reported a good day, overall. The water has settled down and the seaweed has diminished but it's still fowling lines. Early morning brought three slot Reds over the rails to Mike, Chuck Fischer and Larry Robison on live mojarra. The Snapper bite was slow, but steady enough for Mike to get his limit of 5 by 1:00 p.m. Vern Roberson of Winter Haven landed a nice one that was 16". A couple of C/R Snook were landed and released by Rick Jablonski. Alberto Morales of Vero Beach hooked up with a huge Goliath, around 300 lbs., that was lurking under the north jetty, which broke his line after about 30 minutes. 
Our first photo today features 12 year old Garrett Zeak who landed this 32" C/R Redfish on the incoming tide using live shrimp. The Red was released unharmed after the photo. 
Jose Dore landed this 27.5" C/R Redfish in our other photo  using live shrimp. He missed the slot by 1/2"; the Red was released unharmed after the photo.

Snook season opens again on Sunday. Please take a few moments to read the FWC guidelines and fishing etiquette pages. Governor Scott has declared Sunday, September 1st as a "no license required" day for tourists and residents.
