Sebastian Inlet Report


We have a mix of sun and clouds over the inlet today with a possibility of sporadic rains. There is very little wind movement, so the cloud cover is welcomed by our inlet anglers. Tommy Turowski of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported the mullet have thinned out and says he's seen it happen before when they have a "preliminary" run before they really move in. There are a lot of other bait fish in the water though. There have been catches of Snook, oversized and slot, oversized and slot Reds, Mangrove Snapper, Ladyfish and Jacks that have been providing some entertainment. Most people are using baits they've netted themselves, live shrimp or crabs for the Reds.

Mike Ryan of Sebastian sent in our first two photos today. Mike is a regular at the inlet with his "pirate kayak" that he usually fishes from. Saturday however, Mike decided that he would try fishing from the north jetty. Using a small Snapper pole baited with shrimp, Mike pulled a beautiful 32" Snook over the rails...
Photo two is of Mike's kayak that is rigged up for fishing the inlet. If you see this guy around, he's "treasure" hunting! 

Photo three is courtesy of Matt Dillinger. Matt and his cousin Brent C. of Melbourne love fishing the inlet and over the weekend the duo fished the evening shift and Brent landed a 16" C/R Red and the healthy Mangrove Snapper in our third photo.
