Sebastian Inlet Report
05-25-16 WEDNESDAY: LOOKDOWNS, FLOUNDER, MANGROVE SNAPPER, REDS AND SNOOK.
It's another lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 10 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Our photo today is courtesy of Paul Szoke of Palm Bay. Paul confirmed the Flounder run with today's photo. Paul landed this 22" beauty from the south side of the Park. A week ago he landed two 16" and one 18" Flounder. Paul has been nursing a broken femur and thought he missed the run, but says he's landed quite a few since he returned to fishing. He also reported many Lookdowns. On Tuesday Paul landed a large Mackerel and a 14" Mangrove Snapper and five shorts that were returned to the water.
The Angler's for Conservation third annual Advanced Teen Anglers Camp is open for registration. The two-day camps are open to kids ages 12 -17 and are being held June 11 - 12 and July 9 - 10. The two-day camp will help young anglers fine tune the skills of any intermediate or beginning angler and serve as a building block on what it means to be a conservationist. Fish handling, safety, species, habitat, boating, kayaking, fly tying and more will be covered. The camp will take place at the Ted Morehead Lagoon House and costs $40, lunch will be provided. A certificate of completion and a goodie bag will be given to all who attend. Register at atac.anglersforconservation.org.
