Sebastian Inlet Report


We have a nice breeze at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the West at 9 mph, but we still don't have any waves for our surfers out there. The north jetty is crowded with fishermen this morning, good news travels fast amongst our local anglers. The bite was very good yesterday.

We received updates from Diane Buyce of Melbourne and Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike reported a very strong Snook bite in the morning, but he wasn't aware of any slot fish, all were out of the slot and returned to the water, although he got close with one that was 27.5"using live mullet. 90% of the fish landed were on live mullet. The Snook bite lasted from 6:30 a.m. - 8:00, then about 8:30, an awesome Redfish bite turned on and 15 - 20 Reds came over the rails, about 80% were in the slot. Spanish Mackerel returned and anglers using live greenies scored. Diane Buyce landed 10, some were good size, in the 3 - 4 lb. range. Mangrove Snapper are still abundant, but most anglers were focused on Snook and Reds and Rick Jablonski of Sebastian landed a big, fat 16" Snapper that was a beauty. Diane reported that working the Macks for several hours can wear an angler out, she had the best luck free-lining greenies, but thinks she may try again today. 

Our first photo is courtesy of Christopher Muhl. Justin Case (L) and Cameron Burns (R) found a nice quiet river spot and wound up with a Treasure Coast Grand Slam of Snook, Tarpon, Redfish and Sea Trout! The big gator Trout had big teeth, so Justin is holding the fish for Cameron. It weighed 10.5 lbs.
Photo two features Mike Ricciardi with a 27" slot Red and Diane Buyce with a 27" slot Red plus real nice Spanish Mackerel. Beautiful catches!!

Rick Jablonski of Sebastian is featured in our third photo. This sweet Mangrove Snapper was landed yesterday while Rick was trying for Snook! 

Ronnie Pastor of Vero Beach is featured in our fourth photo today. Ronnie was fishing the north jetty on Tuesday morning when he limited out with 5 Snapper using mojarra. Way to go Ronnie!

Ken of Palm Bay is pictured with the only Spanish Mackerel that was landed Tuesday morning in our last photo.
