Sebastian Inlet Report
09-24-15 THURSDAY: REDS, SNOOK, JACKS, LADYFISH, BLUES, TROUT, TARPON AND A FEW FLOUNDER
We have a foggy, overcast morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. NOAA is calling for the wind to switch directions and become East-Southeast this afternoon. We have a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms throughout the day.
We are experiencing the fall mullet run right now; they are thick around both jetties, in the inlet and on the flats. Mojarra and croakers are available in the surf as well. Those thick schools of bait attract some great fish and we are seeing many, many Reds come over the rails with the majority in the slot. Inlet regular Mike Ricciardi fished the north jetty Tuesday afternoon from 1:00 - 4:30 on the incoming tide. He reported much cleaner water with lots of Jacks, Reds, Ladyfish and Blues hitting. Mike landed a 20" slot Red, a 34" C/R Snook and his first slot Snook of the season, a 30" beauty.
Our first photo today features Radomr with a C/R Redfish he landed off the north jetty. The men were using mullet to land the beautiful oversized Red in our first photo. The Red was released unharmed after a quick picture.
Photo two features Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach with his 30" slot Snook; that is something to smile about.
Dot Kern of Bradenton is featured in our third photo today. Dot landed this Bluefish off the north jetty.
Alek Turko of Indialantic fished the north jetty and landed two slot Reds, one was returned to the water. The first catch was a 26" and the second was a 24". And you Know whats coming next in the last photo...
