Sebastian Inlet Report


Whew, what a morning at the inlet, conditions are not for the faint of heart. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northeast at 23 mph and gusting to 27. With the incoming tide, the waves are blowing over the rails and up through the grates, soaking anglers in the process. Not much is being landed either. Quite a few Catfish and a couple of 10" Mangrove Snapper were landed but were returned. They were legal, did not big enough to bother cleaning. 

Dave Vermilye and Dave Lectric of Sebastian fished the south jetty this morning and reported that Snook were busting up schools of mullet at daybreak. Dave Lectric landed two undersized C/R Snook, but that was about it, no table fare on that side either. We sure hope things turn around on the outgoing tide!

Our first photo today is courtesy of Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. Mike took this shot of Diane Buyce of Melbourne with a 36" C/R she landed yesterday morning off the north jetty. Conditions were much better then! The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. 
Our second photo features Spiro Stathopoulos of Malabar with a 13" Mangrove Snapper he landed off the north jetty.

Photo 3&4 are of Brothers Luke and James Vila of Kissimmee who fished the south side and landed a couple of Black Margate using live shrimp.
