Scouting Around Sebastian
Schools of mullet are attracting some nice predators. We're seeing the Redfish bite pick up as it does every fall. Snook are biting too but Reds are the big draw right now. A lot of slot sized and a few oversized Reds are coming over the rails for our jetty anglers. The Mangrove Snapper has slowed some, many think it's due to the dark water, but inlet anglers are still getting a few. Medium to large Jacks have been active and Flounder have started to appear but not in big numbers yet, it's still a little early for them. Tarpon are active on the flats and along the beaches.
Our first photo today features Dennis Campbell of Palm Bay with a real pretty 25" Red he landed off the north jetty Friday morning. Dennis also fished in the rain last Wednesday and reported a great bite for Reds, Snook and Snapper.
Rashad Hickman of Palm Bay landed the 26" slot Red in our second photo on Friday also. This nice Red was landed on the incoming tide on mojarra. Rashad also landed an oversized 28" Red.
Land crabs are on the move and crossing A-1-A to deposit their eggs in the ocean. October and November are peak months for spawning and they cannot be harvested from July 1st - Oct 31st.
