Sebastian Inlet Report


This morning we have a mix of sun and clouds at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 9 mph and gusting to 11. Even though our web cam photos are stuck on Sunday, the temperature, local conditions and tide charts continue to update. If you look at today's tide chart, you will see extreme highs and lows, due to the coming full moon tomorrow night. Tides reported on the web site and in the newspapers are "ocean" tides, be sure to add about 2.5 hours for Sebastian Inlet highs and lows.

Mike Ricciardi and a lot of inlet regulars were out on the north jetty yesterday, braving the elements. Mike sent in an update and reported a wet morning, but a good Redfish bite made it worthwhile. A lot of greenies were in the water attracting the Reds, a few Mangrove Snapper, Blue Runners and sporadic Spadefish. Mike relayed that the first wave of Reds came early, before 7:00 a.m. when at least three slot Reds along with some oversized were landed. The second bite happened around 8:30 when more oversized Reds and at least one slot came over the rails. Mike landed his 25" Red on the 11:00 a.m. bite and landed a few Mangrove Snapper in between, but the Snapper bite wasn't as strong as Monday. Blue Runners were quite active. A beautiful rainbow appeared in between rain storms! Thanks for the photos and update Mike!

Photo one is of Spiro Stathopoulos of Malabar, Chuck Fischer of Satellite Beach and Tony Swiderski of Sebastian, all with slot Reds in the 25" - 26" range which were landed on the 7:00 a.m. bite! 

Photo two is of a very wet Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach with his 25" keeper Red. Sweet catch!

Our last photo is of a beautiful rainbow that appeared over the inlet between rain storms.
