Sebastian Inlet Report
10-20-15 TUESDAY: MOSTLY JACKS AND BLUES
The high winds continue at the inlet keeping the camera lens covered with salt. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 18 mph, gusting to 24 and the water is choppy around the inlet and on the ICW. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through this evening.
We received an update from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who got out in the sloppy conditions and fished the north jetty yesterday morning. Most areas of the jetty were wet with waves crashing into the rocks and coming over the railing. Mike reported rough conditions and not many desirable fish, Jacks and Blues were the only thing hitting during his time on the jetty.
Last week when the weather was calmer, the bite was good. Mike took our first two photos today; the first is of Dave Vermilye of Sebastian with a 31" slot Snook he landed using live shrimp.
Photo two is the second of Mike's slot Snook he landed last week; this one was a 30", landed on shrimp.
Photo three features inlet regular Bill Hillman of Kissimmee. Bill landed the monster 39" Red on Oct. 7th using mullet on the incoming tide. The Red was released unharmed right after the photo. What a catch!
On Saturday October 24th a cast net class will be held at the Fishing Museum on the south side of the Park at 1:00 p.m. Learn how to make, repair and throw a cast net.
