Sebastian Inlet Report
08-20-15 THURSDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, BLUE RUNNERS, REDS, C/R SNOOK AND A FEW LOOKDOWNS
We have 6 mph winds blowing out of the Southwest this morning, gusting to 8 and there is a light chop on the water. The NOAA forecast is calling for the wind to shift to the Southeast this afternoon with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
Tommy Turowski of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop said the Snapper bite continues at the inlet. Anglers using shrimp and small baitfish on light tackle are having the best luck. Snapper are a lot of fun to catch and are quite tasty. Schools of Blue Runners are swimming around the jetties, along with Jacks, a few Reds and Snook.
Our angler of the day is Brandon Cintron of Oviedo. Brandon fished the north jetty using shrimp to land this 25" slot Red. Other anglers were trying for Reds using greenies but weren't having any luck. Brandon reported the Snapper bite was consistent all day.
