Sebastian Inlet Report
10-15-15 THURSDAY: SNOOK, REDS, JACKS, BARRACUDA, MARGATE, SPOTS AND FLOUNDER
We have a little more wind to contend with but it's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 12 mph, gusting to 15 and there is a moderate chop around the inlet. The ICW has a light chop. NOAA is calling for the wind to shift to the Northeast this afternoon.
The incoming tide produced quite a few Snook catches yesterday according to Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach. A lot of undersized Snook in the 25 - 27" range were landed and released. Six to eight slot fish were landed between 7:00 -10:00. The morning produced more Snook than Reds which was unusual; Mike landed and released one that was 27". Most anglers were using live shrimp. Jacks were back in play yesterday but the Spanish Mackerel bite slowed. Barracuda were present as well. One Black Drum came over the rails on live shrimp.
Our first photo today will get all the Flounder fans excited. Curtis Miller of Vero Beach landed this 7.7 lb. Flounder west of the tide pool on the north side using a tiny mullet. He landed and returned several shorts before and after landing this beauty.
Our next two photos are courtesy of Mike Ricciardi. Victor Montalvo of Orlando landed the 23" slot Red on photo two.
Dave Vermilye of Sebastian landed his 33" C/R Snook on mullet on Monday.
Our last two photos feature Aldo Rodriguez of Union City, NJ. netted this 23" Red in photo four and the 31.75" Snook in photo five also landed three Black Margate, two Spots and one Lookdown.
