Sebastian Inlet Report


We have another beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 4 mph and there is a small swell for our surfers out there, hopefully it will build. Always use caution when casting into the surfing area when surfers are present.

Over the weekend we saw a good variety of species come over the rails. We've seen a lot of Reds, a lot of them have been in the slot, and some have been over. Snook are active, but getting one in the slot has been tricky, most have been oversized. Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Blue Runners are still present. We've started seeing Bluefish activity, Black Drum and a few keeper Pompano as well.

Meir Genoune of Boynton Beach fished the north jetty on Friday with his wife Teresa and reported a slow start to the morning. When the tide changed around noon, the Reds turned on and fishing turned into catching! Anglers were catching Reds one after another, many over the slot but 15 - 20 keepers were caught between 1:00 - 2:00. Meir landed his slot Red by 7:30 a.m. and Teresa landed hers during the noon bite. As a matter of fact, she landed an additional 7 that were returned to the water! Meir said she was putting the guys to shame, way to go Teresa!! Meir reported that Bluefish were abundant with several big Mackerel in the mix, three keeper Black Drum and a handful of slot sized Pompano were landed as well. The cooler north winds and tons of bait in the water was a recipe for great fishing!
