Sebastian Inlet Report
10-29-15 THURSDAY: SLOW BITE THIS MORNING
Winds are blowing out of the West at 3 mph, gusting to 7 and there is a light chop on the water. This morning was foggy and overcast, perfect conditions for wetting a line. The water is clean but the mullet have disappeared. Early this morning there were greenies schooling around the north jetty.
The early morning hours brought a few Snook over the rails, most were undersized between 25 - 27" but a couple of slot fish were landed as well. The Black Drum bite that was so great on Wednesday fell off today, a couple of lower slot fish came over the rails this morning but that was all. Yesterday there were four Mutton Snapper landed, two were in the slot, four or five Pompano and a few nice Spanish Mackerel came over the rails.
Inlet regular Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach is featured in our first photo today. Mike landed his two Black Drum when the tide turned from incoming to outgoing. There was a thirty minute window when the Black Drum bite turned on. He also landed a 22" slot Red, all on dead shrimp.
Ricky Reyes is featured in our second photo with a 30" C/R Red he landed using mullet. The Red was released unharmed after the photo.
