Sebastian Inlet Report
08-05-15 WEDNESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, REDS, C/R SNOOK, JACKS AND TARPON
We have winds blowing out of the Southeast this morning at 2 mph and the water is calm. With conditions like these, you can rest assured that the no see 'ums are out and biting, be sure to take insect repellent if you head to the inlet. Winds are predicted to pick up a little this afternoon which will help keep the bugs away.
Mangrove Snapper is the prevalent bite at the inlet right now. A few Redfish, C/R Snook, Jack, Bonito or Tarpon can be found in small numbers. We have a lot of bait in the water, getting the fish to bite is the challenge.
Our first photo today features Jeff Spaulding and Bill Hillman of Kissimmee. Jeff hadn't fished in years and had never caught a fish at the inlet prior to landing this 28" C/R Red using live mojarra.
Sebastian Inlet State Park Ranger Ed Perry captured some great shots of the sun rising over the inlet this morning.
