Sebastian Inlet Report
We have another stunning morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 4 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light chop on the water. Temperatures are in the low 70's this morning and it just doesn't get much better than this! We have a chance of potential showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.
The bite remains slow. A few nice fish are showing up but they are few and far between. Some of the inlet regulars speculate that the lack of bait in the water is the reason for the sluggish activity. A few Blues, Spanish Mackerel, Lookdowns, Jacks, Reds or Snook will appear for a fortunate angler. Sarah from the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported a couple of Sheepshead, Jacks and oversized Reds were in play this morning. The weather is great and conditions are perfect, get out and wet a line!
Our photos today feature Jerry Connors. Jerry recently moved to Brevard and has discovered paradise at the Sebastian Inlet. He has been getting to the inlet as often as possible and having some success with oversized Reds, one oversized Snook and a slot Snook. Photo one is of Jerry with a 41" Red he landed using mojarra on 20 lb. test. He threw mojarra for three hours before landing the big bull. Jerry switched to shrimp and landed the 34" C/R Snook in photo two. Both fish were released unharmed right after the photos.
