Sebastian Inlet Report
04-26-16 TUESDAY: THE BITE IS PICKING UP
We have a gorgeous morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. It looks like a great day to get out and do a little fishing.
The bite has picked up a little from the jetties but the river and canals are holding some nice fish right now. Speckled Trout are plentiful near the shoreline for anglers using lures on light tackle. Fishing near the channel markers can be productive for Mangrove Snapper; they are starting to show up. Do not anchor your vessel in the channel, always anchor outside the channel.
The five Rathburn brothers came from Athol, MA to fish the inlet again (and visit their mother). The guys had a great time catching lots of big Jacks and Blues and an occasional Snook or Red and soaking up the sunshine!
