Sebastian Inlet Report
10-08-15 THURSDAY: SNOOK, REDS, JACKS, SPANISH MACKEREL, LADYFISH
We have dark clouds over the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 9 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop around the jetties. The ICW has a light chop. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but always check prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.
Today we are seeing many anglers in wet weather gear; not only due to clouds but yesterday waves were crashing over the jetties giving folks a nice, salty shower. We got an update from inlet regular Mike Ricciardi who reported that the fall mullet run is officially over. Everybody can stay home now! We did however manage to gather a lot of photos on Tuesday during the morning and afternoon fishing frenzy of Snook, Reds, big Jacks and Spanish Mackerel.
Our first photo today features Andy Lineman of Sebastian. Andy landed this beautiful 31" slot Snook Tuesday morning using finger mullet. Andy also landed a 34" C/R Red that morning using shrimp.
Photo two features Charles Friddle of Melbourne. Charles was using mullet to land this good sized Jack Tuesday morning. There was an early morning period of Jack after Jack coming over the rails.
Inlet regular Dana Verrier (L) of W. Melbourne landed the oversized Snook in our third photo Tuesday morning with Andy Sampson (R) of Melbourne on the net. They didn't even bother to measure it; Andy lowered it back into the water immediately via net.
Photo four is of a huge Snook that was landed by an unidentified angler. The Snook was returned to the water immediately.
Our last photo today features an unidentified angler with an oversized Red that was released unharmed.
