Sebastian Inlet Report


It's another beautiful morning at the inlet. There's not much wind blowing this morning and it's pretty humid. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 2 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. It wasn't too bad for August. There were big schools of Jacks ripping through schools of greenies and if an angler threw bait out during one of the frenzies, they landed a Jack. In the early morning, C/R Snook were biting but they became lethargic about 7:30 a.m. and just laid around, stacked up by the north jetty. Mike landed three Mangrove Snapper, saw two slot Reds in the 26" range landed, along with one Spot and one Lookdown. 

Our photos today are courtesy of Matt Hammons of Cocoa. Matt and his cousin, Nick Smith traveled down to the inlet to fish the north jetty. Matt landed the 34"C/R Snook in photo one using large, live shrimp. 

Photo two features Nick Smith also of Cocoa with his first Snook catch. Nick's C/R Snook was 37" and was released unharmed right after the photo. 

The men also landed two nice Mangrove Snapper to take home for dinner, very nice gentlemen!
