Sebastian Inlet Report
07-23-15 THURSDAY: SMALL NUMBER OF REDS, C/R SNOOK, SNAPPER, BONITO AND JACKS
We have another lovely morning at the inlet. It's hot and humid but it's not as bad as a lot of other places around the country. We have that nice sea breeze blowing at 8 mph out of the West-Southwest this morning which is keeping our inlet anglers a little bit cooler. There is a light chop on the water. We are experiencing typical summer weather patterns and unless there is a tropical disturbance we can expect more of the same. Late afternoon showers and thunderstorms are the norm, so expect more of those too.
Fishing is slower this time of year; it's as predictable as the weather patterns. We see scattered species in small numbers. Even though there are baitfish in the water, the bite remains slow. A smattering of Snapper, Reds, C/R Snook, Bonito, Little Tunny and Mackerel have been landed but Jacks seem to be the most active. Anglers fishing from a vessel have better luck by going to find the fish hide outs. Shore-based anglers are not as fortunate. No matter, get out and enjoy the fresh air and beauty of the outdoors!
Our angler of the day is Bill Hufford. Bill landed this big 36" C/R Snook while fishing the inlet. The nice Snook was released right after the photo.
