Sebastian Inlet Report
07-24-15 FRIDAY: BONITO, JACKS, SNAPPER, REDS AND C/R SNOOK IN SMALL NUMBERS
Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 6 mph this morning and the water has a light chop. We have a decent boating forecast for the weekend but as usual, showers and storms are predicted. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a quite a few Bonito in the water along with a few Jacks, Snapper, C/R Snook and Reds. A couple of Barracuda are patrolling the north jetty and they tend to keep fish away. No see 'ums are out and biting this morning, be sure to take insect repellent if your head to the inlet!
Our angler of the day is Walt Eldon of Indian Harbour Beach. Walt was surf fishing using a gator spoon when he found a large school of Reds feeding on menhaden. Walt landed five big Reds, up to 30 lbs.! All the Reds were released unharmed.
