Sebastian Inlet Report


We have a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West at 6 mph, gusting to 11 and the water is smooth. As predicted, TS Bertha brought us some desperately desired waves and first peak is crowded with surfers this morning. As always, use caution when casting off the north side of the north jetty when surfers are present.

Mangrove Snapper remains the best bet, although we've seen some good sized Reds, Jacks and an occasional Permit. Yesterday's rain and cloud cover may have cooled off the water a little, but we need several days in a row to really help with the bite. The dog days of August are tough on our anglers. 

We received an update from Atila of Orlando who fished the north jetty Friday night into Saturday morning. Atila landed and released the 35" Red in our  photo today, using crab and shrimp on the outgoing tide, what a beauty! He also landed two C/R Snook, one was 34" and the other was 38". All were released unharmed. Fishing through the night, Atila reported that the Saturday morning was pretty slow with a few Mangrove Snapper coming over the rails. He assisted another angler with a big Permit that was at least 35", he believes it was landed on a mojarra.
