Sebastian Inlet Report
11-16-15 MONDAY: SNOOK, SPANISH MACKEREL, BLUES, REDS AND BLACK DRUM
Winds are blowing out of the East at 14 mph, gusting to 17 and there is a moderate chop on the water.
The rougher conditions have turned the Snook bite on and we saw plenty of them landed over the past three days. Tommy Turowski of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a good weekend for anglers using live shrimp. Yesterday afternoon the Snook were following schools of mullet and pinfish which also brought in Spanish Mackerel and Blues. A few Reds and Black Drum were in the mix as well.
Our First photo today is of Mike Kondrat of Sebastian. Mike landed and released this beautiful oversized Red.
The Snook bite remains strong at the inlet. PLEASE handle C/R Snook with care, they are delicate and cannot be kept out of the water long. Try to return the Snook to the water via net if possible. If not, put the fish in head first, away from the rocks. Take your photographs quickly. If you know a fish is too short or too long don't take the time to measure it, get it back into the water. We must protect our resources, they are not unlimited. Large Reds and a few slot Reds are coming over the rails of the north jetty and for anglers fishing in boats near the jetty. Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported Mackerel in the surf and yesterday he landed a 4 lb. Cero.
We received an update and photo from Laura Weinberger who fished the inlet last weekend with her dad, Bill. They fished all night and reported non-stop action on the north jetty. Snook and Reds were active and Laura poses with a large Sheepshead and Margate in photo one.
Photo three is of inlet regular Chuck Fischer of Satellite Beach. Chuck made a rare weekend appearance on Sunday morning and went home with a 29" slot Snook.
Brian Aviles of Longwood fished the inlet for the first time and went home with the 26" Spanish Mackerel in our last photo.
