Sebastian Inlet Report

This morning winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 5 mph and gusting to 9. The water has a light chop and it's a gorgeous fall morning at the inlet! We received an update from inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty Friday morning. Mike reported that the dirty water and lots of seaweed made conditions tough, but the fish were definitely biting. A good number of Reds, 10 - 15, came over the rails of which 4 - 6 were slot fish. Most of the Reds were landed on live finger mullet. A lot of undersized Snook were landed and returned to the water. Mike landed Snook that were 12", 15" and 24". Snook were hitting mullet, live shrimp and mojarra. In addition to Mike's undersized Snook, he landed a 20 lb. Stingray (that must have felt like a whale on the line), a 24" and 29" Red, one of which he kept, 13" and 15" Snappers and a 24" Spanish Mackerel. Mike also spotted a few Sheepshead, Margate and one undersized Pompano.
 Our first photo today features Melvin King of Knoxville, TN. who hook up with a Red at the inlet. On his last day, Melvin landed this 30" C/R Red from the south catwalk using cut mullet. This was his first Redfish, but probably won't be his last! 
Dave Dashner of Sebastian is featured in our second photo today. Dave and his wife fish the south beach several times a week he reported bad weeds and a slow morning. He was ready to give up when this 30" keeper Snook hit a 2 oz. Gator spoon about 10' offshore. This beautiful Snook took him for quite a ride, but Dave prevailed in the end. 
Photo three features Charlie Bosco of Melbourne Beach with two nice Mackerel he landed in the 25" - 30" range using greenies. 
Our last photo features Rick Jablonski of Sebastian with a real nice 31.5" slot Snook he landed off the north jetty. Rick was using finger mullet to land this gorgeous Snook.
