Sebastian Inlet Report


It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 2 mph and the water is flat and calm. Be sure to take insect repellent with you if you head to the inlet, the no see 'ums love these conditions!

Over the weekend we saw schools of big Jacks, Reds, Snook and a lot of Mangrove Snapper are still hanging around the jetties. A few Spanish Mackerel have started making appearances, but hopefully those numbers will pick up as we head into fall. A lot of bait is in the water, schools of greenies, mojarra, mullet and glass minnows have been setting off the bigger fish, which is a good sign. 

Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach fished the afternoon shift on Friday and sent in an update for us. Mike fished from 11:00 - 4:00 and reported a beautiful day, although he didn't have any luck, he had a great time watching the giant schools of bait get chased and busted up by the Snook, Reds and Jacks. Anglers were having good luck using live mullet, but several fish were landed on mojarra. Four or five Snook were landed, but all were oversized and returned to the water.
