Sebastian Inlet Report

08-01-14 FRIDAY: FISHING IS SLOW....... 

We have another toasty morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 8 mph, gusting to 13 and there is a light chop on the water. Over the next few days, we'll be keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Bertha that is predicted to be headed our way; hopefully she will stay offshore and just crank up some waves for our surfers and stir up the fish a little bit.

The fishing remains on the slow side off the beaches and jetties. A few more fish were landed yesterday than Wednesday, but it was still very slow. The morning hours brought us about 5 Snapper and an inlet regular landed a 24" Flounder, but that was it for the morning. Tommy Turowski of the Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop said the big Reds were still hitting on the outgoing tide, but they seemed to have caught onto the poppers many were throwing and have been refusing them. Better try something else like live or dead baits as they tend to be scent feeders. Cut bait works well as it is usually pretty stinky, along with dead or live shrimp. Reds can be found on the flats as well, particularly with the heat, you can find them under mangrove shade, docks or pilings.

Our photo today is of a huge 45" C/R Snook caught by 
Alex Torres. He landed it off the north jetty using a baby blue crab to land this huge Snook. After a quick photo, Alex released the fish unharmed.
