Sebastian Inlet Report

05-28-14 WEDNESDAY: FISHING IS SLOW........... 

We have another lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 6 mph and gusting to 9. 

Wish we had more to report but the jetty fishing remains slow. The only thing we heard from the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop this morning was that the Goliath Grouper lurking beneath the north jetty are nailing any potential catches the anglers may have. There have been a few far and between catches of oversized Snook and Reds, a few big Jacks, a couple of Lookdowns and Margate for the patient angler. 

Our first photo is courtesy of Scott Ward of Indialantic. Scott fished the south side rocks using shrimp. Fishing close to the T-Dock, he landed the juvenile Red Grouper in our first photo today. Scott has fished the inlet for more than 20 years and this is the first one he's seen in the inlet. The Grouper was returned to the water unharmed. 
Randy Gastfield fished the inlet Thursday night, when he hooked up with a 30+ lb. Snook. Randy had the Snook about 75' from shore when a big shark came up and ate all but the head. Randy reeled in the head that was still alive, which weight 7 - 8 lbs. This was near the south side cleaning tables where Randy also saw a 3' Moray Eel and another smaller shark swim by. Many don't realize that big sharks come in that far, but they do, the proof is in the picture. Randy was really disappointed that the Snook couldn't be landed and released to spawn and fight another day.
