Sebastian Inlet Report
08-19-15 WEDNESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, LOOKDOWNS, BLUE RUNNERS, REDS AND C/R SNOOK
It's another lovely summer morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 3 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light to moderate chop on the water. Water temperatures are creeping back up to normal for this time of year. The NOAA forecast is calling for potential scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.
We have the same cast of characters making appearances at the inlet. Mangrove Snapper have been playing the lead role with Lookdowns with Blue Runners supporting and cameos of C/R Snook and Reds. We are still seeing a lot of bait in the water.
Our photo is courtesy of Alek Turko of Indialantic. Alek fished the inlet and reported a good Snapper bite but the smalls were getting to the bait before the keepers had a chance. There were large schools of Reds and a few Snook popping in the mix. Alek landed this slot Red and slot Snapper.
