Sebastian Inlet Report



We have a small craft advisory this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 14 mph, gusting to 17 and waters are choppy. The extreme tides have the water on the murky side, but the fish have been abundant. It looks like after the jellyfish moved out, things returned to normal mid-September conditions. We are starting to see more variety of species as well as bait in the water.

Inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach fished the north jetty yesterday morning and sent in an update for us. Rain poured down from 7:30 - 8:30 but it set off a good Redfish bite. Those anglers who stayed during the rain landed numerous fish and at least six people landed Reds in the slot. All anglers were using mojarra, but finger mullet were plentiful and work well for Reds. A few Snook came over the rails, but all were over the slot. After Mike landed his slot Red, he went to work on Mangrove Snapper and got his limit of five with no trouble. He used mojarra for the Snapper as well. Mike reported several large Jacks, Blue Runners, a Sheepshead, Margate, and undersized Pompano and a Mutton Snapper.

Our first photo today features Kyle Falbo of Miami who was here surf fishing near the south jetty. Kyle was using a croaker and fought the oversized Snook for 39 minutes before landing it. He revived the fish and released it unharmed after the photo.
 Photo two is of Steve Bozutto of Vero Beach, Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach, Chuck Fischer of Satellite Beach and Tony Swiderski of Sebastian, all with slot Reds they landed yesterday morning.

Dennis Campbell of Palm Bay missed the group shot, but was another angler who benefitted from the Redfish bite.

Richard LaDrew of Melbourne Beach landed this nice Spotted Seatrout using an all-white grub while fishing the flats. This nice Trout was 28.5".
