Sebastian Inlet Report
09-16-15 WEDNESDAY: SNAPPER, JACKS, SNOOK AND REDS
We have a blustery morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 17 mph, gusting to 22 and there is a pretty good chop on the water. We have cloudy skies and a chance of rain throughout the day today. Many times these kinds of conditions will invigorate the bite, throw on some rain gear and head to the inlet!
Schools of mullet are starting to swim around the inlet, beaches and on the flats. It looks like the beginning of the fall mullet run, three words we love to hear. You can bet that the Snook and Reds will be following those schools particularly in the early morning and evening hours. We're still seeing quite a few Mangrove Snapper and even a few Muttons come over the rails. Large and medium sized Jacks and straggler species are active as well.

Mike reported live shrimp seemed to be the bait of choice for Snapper that day. One oversized Snook came over the rails and Mike landed a 31" C/R Red.
