Sebastian Inlet Report
10-02-15 FRIDAY: TGIF! THE FISH ARE BITING!
Hurricanes are unpredictable but it looks like we may dodge the bullet with Hurricane Joaquin that is now a category 4 storm. The majority of the spaghetti models show the hurricane moving northeast and staying offshore, we sure hope that pans out. We will still feel the effects if it stays offshore with high winds, rain and rough seas. Our boaters will have to stay at the dock for a few days until the seas calm down. With Joaquin over the Bahamas this morning, we are having a fairly calm morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 6 mph, gusting to 11 and there is a moderate chop on the water. A few dark clouds are looming and we have a chance of showers throughout the day. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution today due to large northeast swells. A small craft advisory is in effect from late tonight through Sunday evening.
The north jetty is crowded with anglers this morning. We are seeing many species of fish in large numbers at the inlet due the fall mullet run. Lots of Reds, oversized and many in the slot are giving anglers a workout. Oversized and slot Snook are hitting mullet and live shrimp. Big Jacks, Blues, Margate, Tarpon, Trout, Spanish Mackerel and even a few Flounder have been active at the inlet.
Last weekend was epic for Meir Genoune, his three children and their friend Terrance Hunter all of Boynton Beach. Meir drove the kids up early Saturday morning to fish the inlet for the weekend. Meir and his kids like to come to the inlet when the fishing gets good but this was Terrance's first trip. Meir reported finger mullet everywhere and the fishing was great all day on Saturday. They landed many Reds, slot and oversized using finger mullet they netted at the inlet and crabs they brought with them. Terrance is an experienced angler but had never landed a Redfish prior to the trip. He ended up landing five Reds and can't wait to get back. In addition, they landed multiple Snook, under and over the slot and saw Blues, Pompano, Margate and Ladyfish come over the rails. The pace slowed down some on Sunday but they managed a few more slot Reds.
Our first photo features (L-R) Terrance Hunter, Eytan Genoune, Sheer Genoune and Leore Genoune, all with slot Reds. Great job!
Photo two features Terrance Hunter with one of the nice Reds he landed.
Photo three features Eytan Genoune with a nice Red.
Our fourth photo features Leore Genoune with a monster C/R Snook.
Our last photo features the man who made all those memories happen for the kids, Meir Genoune with a slot Red of his own.
