Sebastian Inlet Report


We have another pretty morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East at 6 mph, gusting to 10. Although conditions look relatively calm, the NOAA forecast is calling for rough conditions near inlets on the outgoing tide this morning. Use caution if navigating near the inlet. 

The summertime blues are upon us, a little earlier than usual this year. The inlet has been slow, but we received an update from SISP Ranger Ed Perry this morning who reported Whiting being caught in the surf and a few from the jetties. There are a lot of spawning Snook in the water; they are out of season for this purpose until September 1st. It's best not to target them during this time. Pregnant females can be seriously harmed or killed if not handled properly or tossed off the north jetty incorrectly. If you happen to land one accidentally from the north jetty, please lower the Snook back into the water via drop net. If no drop net is available, point the fish head first toward the water where there are no rocks. This will help to ensure this precious resource will continue to thrive.
