Sebastian Inlet Report


We have a touch of fall in the air this morning! Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 8 mph and gusting to 11. There is a moderate chop on the water and small craft should exercise caution. Things have been heating up at the inlet this week. We've seen a real good Mangrove Snapper bite, Reds of all sizes but most have been in the slot. Snook have been biting but most of those have been oversized, but an occasional keeper will make some angler's day! Spanish Mackerel started making appearances a few days ago and there have been some real healthy ones landed. Tarpon have been active in the evening hours.

Our first photo today features Serina Humber of Winter Haven. Serina was fishing the inlet for the first time when she landed this nice Mangrove Snapper using live shrimp. 
Inlet regular Paul Szoke is featured in our second photo today. Paul landed this healthy Snapper  along with several others. 
Cristian Sotelo of Coconut Creek and a buddy landed the two slot Reds in our third photo along with 8 Mangrove Snapper, 1 oversized C/R Red, 1 20" C/R Fat Snook, and Cristian lost what looked like a slot Snook right at the net. They plan on coming back when the Flounder start to run!

Bill Brice of Palm Bay fished the north jetty and is featured in our fourth photo today. Using shrimp, Bill landed the oversized C/R Snook, but sent it on its way with a kiss good bye! 
Our last photo today is of Jeremy Ward. Jeremy is a recent transplant from Columbia, SC, now living in Melbourne. Fishing from the T-Dock Monday evening, he landed his 22" slot Red using live bait, his first Red, ever!
