08-18-14 MONDAY: SNAPPER, JACKS, BONITO, TARPON, C/R SNOOK, REDS AND A FEW PERMIT
THE TIP OF THE NORTH JETTY WILL BE CLOSED ON THE 19TH, 20TH, 21ST AND 22ND FOR WEATHER STATION REPAIRS AT THE END OF THE JETTY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE WHILE THIS IMPORTANT WORK IS BEING PERFORMED.
It's a warm, muggy morning at the inlet. The no see 'ums are out in force this morning, be sure to take insect repellent with you if you head to the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 6 mph and the water is calm.
Over the weekend Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported that a lot of fish were in the water, although not many were biting. After the rain Saturday afternoon, it was very active with Snook busting up glass minnow pods, Tarpon were rolling, schools of Bonito, Jacks and big Reds were visible, but they seemed to be more interested in the stuff in the water and not much was really hitting for the north jetty anglers. An occasional nice fish would appear for the more patient anglers, but it was really hit or miss.
Our photo today features 11 year old Brenden Reese who had his first overnight fishing trip to the inlet with his dad, Jonathan. Brenden and his dad are regulars during the winter Flounder season. The father-son duo was fishing the north jetty when Brenden hooked up with this big, 35" C/R Snook.
Jake McEuen of Avon Park was camping at the State Park with a buddy last week and sent in an update. Thursday morning they found a bunch of Mangrove Snapper piled up off Coconut Point. They landed about 30 in less than 15 minutes; all were released even though some were slot sized. The Snapper were crashing bait pods and were hitting Jake's short DOA lure in pink. They were too busy catching and releasing fish to take any photos!
