Sebastian Inlet Report
04-08-16 FRIDAY; SNOOK, REDS, BLUES AND JACKS
It's a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 7 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds will increase this afternoon, becoming Northwest and NOAA has issued a small craft advisory tonight through Saturday afternoon. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
The bite has been very slow at the inlet this week but things picked up a little this morning according to Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. A few Snook and Reds were hitting live shrimp. Blues have been taking spoons on the outgoing tide. An inlet regular told her that large Jacks were hitting under the bridge last night. Jerry Connors is featured in our first photo today. Jerry is a Florida native who recently moved to Brevard County and loves fishing the inlet. Jerry has had good luck with several Reds over the past two weeks. He landed one on his second cast and the other on his sixth cast. Although all have been over the slot and returned to the water, he's had a great time reeling them in. Jerry was using live mojarra on 20 lb. test when he brought in the multi-spotted C/R Red in photo one.
Photo two features Sally Baughman of Jackson Hole, WY with a beautiful 30" slot Snook she landed.
