Sebastian Inlet Report


We have another beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 3 mph and gusting to 5. We have a chance of rain today and over the weekend. Go prepared for anything if you head to the inlet or offshore. With very little wind blowing, the no see 'ums have a tendency to come out in force, so be sure to take insect repellent, sun screen and lots of water. 

We are seeing some nice sized Whiting being landed from the beaches, even with the weeds in the water. The water has been clear enough to site fish them. We received an update from Chris Lockwood who fished the north jetty late Wednesday night. Chris reported a strong C/R Snook bite; they couldn't resist the large mojarra Chris was throwing. Chris was using a Shimano Stradic 6000 reel with 30 lb. braid and something nailed a big mojarra that managed to spool 300 yards of line with just a few lightening runs. Chris never saw what was on the line, so that was a heart breaker and he's still pondering what it could have been. He is guessing it was a huge Jack or monster Red. I spoke to Dave Hartwell on the north jetty yesterday who said Permit have been active at night as well, so it could have been a Permit, big Snook or Tarpon but we'll never know. 

Our first photo today features Sonny Advincula of Kissimmee who fished the north jetty yesterday morning. The only thing biting before the rains hit were Lookdowns. They were taking small, white jigs.
