Sebastian Inlet Report
08-18-15 TUESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, SNOOK AND LOOKDOWN
Inlet anglers can expect showers and thunderstorms after 11:00 A.M. Between the rains, conditions will be mostly sunny with a high near 91. Initially winds will be south-southeast becoming east-southeast 10 to 15 mph. The chance of rain is 30%.
Vero Beach's Mike Ricciardi fished the north jetty on Monday and reported a decent mangrove snapper bite in the early morning. However, it fell off when the tide changed from outgoing to incoming about 9:30 A.M. Mike and Diane Buyce of Melbourne both landed their limits of snapper, along with a few other Inlet regulars.
There's still a lot of bait in the water with big schools of blue runners busting through the packs. Mike said lookdowns were active and one large C/R snook came over the rails while he fished.
Our picture of the day is from Victor Montolvo of Orlando. Victor landed his limit of mangrove snapper using mojarra. He hooked his entire catch within one hour of arriving at the north jetty.
