Sebastian Inlet Report
09-29-15 TUESDAY: REDS, SNOOK, JACKS, BLUES, SPANISH MACKEREL, MARGATE, TARPON AND TROUT
We have a wet, overcast morning at the inlet. The weather forecast is calling for rain off and on today. Winds are blowing out of the West at 5 mph which should shift to the Southwest this afternoon. NOAA is cautioning small craft to exercise caution for seas.
Don't let the weather stop you from taking a trip to the inlet today. Many times the bite gets real good in rainy weather. Toss on a raincoat and go for it! Reds are the big attraction and the most active species at the inlet, with Snook and Jacks running a close second. The mullet run is bringing in Blues, Margate, a few Spanish Mackerel, a Flounder or two, Tarpon and Trout. There is no shortage of fish!
Our first photo today features Jorge Irizarry with a 22" C/R Black Grouper he landed off the south jetty. This beauty was 2" short, but a very nice inshore, still catch. In our second photo today, Jorge had better luck with a 29" slot Snook he landed later in the evening.
Brie H. sent in our third photo of the day. Brie landed this 6' Black Tip while night fishing the beach. The Shark was released unharmed to fight another day. Nice going Brie!
Louis Chapman fished the north jetty and reported the mullet were running thick! Louis landed the 22.5" Jack in our fourth photo and the 19" Bluefish in our fifth photo.
