Sebastian Inlet Report
05-05-16 THURSDAY: SLOW ACTION
We have a gorgeous morning at the inlet. After yesterday's deluge, the sun is shining and skies are blue! There is a moderate chop on the water and NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.
The bite remains slow from the jetties. Anglers fishing the rivers and canals have had better luck, particularly with Speckled Trout. We received an update from Jerry Connors of Melbourne who went out on the north jetty at 2:00 a.m. Jerry reported high winds but after about thirty minutes he landed two Reds back to back. The first was 29" and the second was 32" both fish were landed on live shrimp and returned to the water unharmed. There was no action for the next hour or so, he worked his way to the bridge, still no hits until 6:00 a.m. when he landed two 26" Snook back to back then he settled into another lull. Around 7:30, he landed a 31" Red and at 8:00 he landed a very angry 41" Red which were also returned to the water. After that big bull, Jerry called it a day and headed home.
