Sebastian Inlet Report
08-21-15 FRIDAY: TGIF...THE BITE IS SLOW THIS MORNING
We have a beautiful, hot day at the inlet. Winds are moving out of the Southwest at 3 mph with occasional gusts to 5 and the water is calm. The outgoing tide is dark with tannins, the incoming is cleaner. The NOAA forecast is calling for 1 - 2' seas over the weekend with only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.
There are a lot of bait fish in the water and lots of fish in the water this morning but nothing is really biting. The early morning hours brought a couple of C/R Snook and a few Mangrove Snapper but after 9:00 the bite fell off.
Our angler of the day is Loi Nguyen of Sebastian. Loi landed this healthy Mangrove Snapper off the north jetty in the morning using mojarra.
Our second photo features Tommy Ngo of Melbourne. Tommy and a friend were fishing last Friday morning when they saw a sea turtle tangled in fishing line. The duo netted the turtle, brought it up on the north jetty, freed it from the line and released it. What good stewards of the environment, way to go guys!
