Sebastian Inlet Report
FLOUNDER, SNAPPER, REDS AND SNOOK
We have another beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 10 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is predicting winds to pick up this afternoon and there is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.
We are happy to report that the bite has picked up with some spring and summer species. Quite a few Summer Flounder have been pushing through, we're starting to see Mangrove Snapper and of course we still have the big Reds that have been hitting in the evening hours. Snook are still active and you have a week left in the season to land that keeper. Snook season will close from June 1st - Sept. 1st for spawning season. All Snook will be strictly catch and release during the closed season.
Our angler of the day is Jerry Connors of Melbourne who has become an inlet regular since moving to the area. Jerry landed this beautiful 41" C/R Snook off the north jetty. The Snook was released unharmed.
