Sebastian Inlet Report
05-04-16 WEDNESDAY: SLOW BITE
We have a wet day ahead of us today. This morning winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 9 mph, gusting to 17 and the water is very calm. Winds are predicted to pick up late this afternoon and NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution at that time. Showers and thunderstorms are likely throughout the day so be sure to pack your wet weather gear if you head to the inlet today.
Rainy, cloudy days can sometimes invigorate the bite, throw on some rain gear and give it a shot. The action has been slow off the north jetty so maybe today is the day it turns around. With the water temperature rising, we should start to see snapper starting to show up.
Our angler of the day is Mike Zambrano of Melbourne. Mike was kayak fishing at Long Point when he landed the beautiful 26.5" Red. Mike was using a Gulp swimming mullet to land the slot fish.
