Sebastian Inlet Report
08-26-15 WEDNESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER
Thank goodness for the little bit of breeze we have blowing out of the Southwest this morning, otherwise the heat would be stifling. Seven mph winds with gusts to nine are keeping the inlet anglers a little more comfortable. NOAA is calling for the wind to pick up this afternoon with likely showers and thunderstorms.
This time of year, Mangrove Snapper are the most prevalent species at the inlet; August and September are peak months for them. The tasty little fish are a lot of fun to catch. Live mojarra, greenies or shrimp on light tackle have been producing the best results. Lookdowns, Jacks, Blue Runners, Reds and C/R Snook are in the water as well but getting them to bite is the trick.
Our angler of the day is Michele Ward of Kissimmee. Michele landed her Sheepshead off the T-Dock using shrimp.
