Sebastian Inlet Report
10-14-15 WEDNESDAY: REDS, SNOOK, SPANISH MACKEREL, JACKS, FLOUNDER, TARPON AND TROUT
We have another stellar morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and the water has a very light chop. Winds are predicted to switch to the Southeast late this afternoon.
We are seeing many of the usual fall fish come over the rails of the jetties. Reds, Snook and Spanish Mackerel have been the prevalent species with an occasional Flounder, Jack and Bluefish. Tarpon and Trout are active on the flats.
Our first photo today features inlet regular "Mackerel Diane" Buyce of Melbourne. Diane spent a frustrating morning Tuesday on the north jetty. Her beloved targeted species kept spitting the hook or cutting her off and she went through hooks and bait galore. Only two Macks came over the rails during the morning hours but the bite turned on at noon. Diane landed three in a row and she didn't stop there. The Mackerel in the photo was one of many she landed that afternoon.
Photo two features Stephen Frye of Cocoa Beach. Stephen and his friend Blake Reed fished the north jetty last Tuesday morning when the Redfish bite and the Redfish bite was hot! Early in the morning hours Stephen and Blake both landed 43+" Reds and both landed slot Reds later in the morning. Stephen holds a 22" keeper he landed using mullet.
Fran Barbera fished the north jetty and landed the slot Redfish in our third photo and landed the Shark in our fourth photo on Thursday. Nice going Fran!
