Sebastian Inlet Report
06-21-16 TUESDAY: CONDITIONS ARE SETTLING DOWN...
Conditions have started to calm down. Winds are blowing out of the East at 9 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for a slight chance of showers today although dark clouds are hovering over the inlet and rain can be seen offshore. It looks like a good day to go prepared.
The sloppy conditions over the past few days didn't seem to bother the Reds, they like it rough! A few Snook, good sized Jacks and a few Spanish Mackerel were in play but the Mangrove Snapper disappeared. With conditions settling down we should see them back on the scene soon.
Our featured angler today is Palm Bay native Patrick Miller. Patrick landed the beautiful C/R Snook off the south catwalk using greenies on June 10th. The fish was returned to water unharmed right after the photo.
The FWC and the Florida Sport Fishing Association will be hosting a free Kid's Fishing Clinic on June 25th at Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal # 3, 220 Christopher Columbus Drive, Cape Canaveral, FL from 9 - noon. Children ages 5 - 15 will learn the basics of conservation stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills and safety. Fishing equipment and bait will be provided but organizers encourage those who own fishing tackle to bring it. A limited number of rods and reels will be given away to participants upon completion of the clinic. All participants must be accompanied by an adult. Individuals or companies interested in helping sponsor the event or volunteering should contact FWC at 850-487-0554. For more information regarding the clinic go to MyFWC.com/Fishing and select the "Youth and Student" option under "Education".
