Sebastian Inlet Report
09-14-15 MONDAY: SNAPPER, JACKS, SNOOK, REDS, LOOKDOWNS AND BLUE RUNNERS
It's hot and humid this morning but the conditions are a little different. There is a moderate chop on the water, NOAA is calling for 2 - 3' seas with a dominate period of 4 seconds, making it a bumpy offshore. Temperatures are a little lower this week, only in the high 80's instead of 90's. These subtle changes mean that fall fishing is right around the corner, it's been a long, hot summer!
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a very good bite yesterday. A good variety of fish came over the rails including Mangrove Snapper, Reds, Jacks, Snook, Blue Runners, Lookdowns and one Flounder. Bait is plentiful and mullet are starting to show up off the beach, another indicator of good things to come!
