Sebastian Inlet Report
10-12-15 MONDAY: SNOOK, REDS, JACKS, SPANISH MACKEREL, FLOUNDER, TROUT AND TARPON
We have a gorgeous fall morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 4 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a light chop on the water.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a good bite over the weekend. Mullet are still running and there have been Snook, Reds, Jacks, a few Blues, Spanish Mackerel and a few good sized Flounder coming over the rails. Trout have been active in the river and off the beach, which is not common but not unheard of either. Tarpon are rolling in the surf as well.
Last Tuesday was quite a day for fishing off the north jetty, all of today's photos were taken then. Our first photo features Stephen Frey of Cocoa Beach with a big 43" C/R Red he landed early in the morning hours. Stephen said the Redfish bite was good in the early hours. The big guy was released unharmed to fight another day! Stephen landed a 23" slot Red later in the day.
Photo two features Blake Reed of Cape Canaveral with a 26" slot Red he landed using mullet. Blake landed a 43.5" C/R Red early that morning and later in the day. The oversized Red was released safely.
Steve Decoulos of Atlantic Bait and Tackle poses with a 34" oversized Snook landed by Bryan Sampson of Kissimmee in our third photo. Bryan landed this big Snook but his net was needed to assist another angler. Bryan asked Steve to unhook the Snook and place him back into the water. Steve got this big Snook back into the water right after a quick photo. Nice team work and handling guys!
Photo four is of Ken White of Port St. Lucie. This Mackerel was one of two that came over the rails Tuesday morning. There were many, many cutoffs that morning. The Mackerel got hot later that day and we're sure Ken added more to his cooler!
Photo five is of Richard Gonzalez of Palm Bay. Richard landed his Spanish Mackerel using finger mullet after the bite turned on.
