Sebastian Inlet Report
06-24-16 FRIDAY: TGIF!
We had a very quiet morning on the north jetty. There was very little wind and not much was biting. The outgoing tide was very dark, one Jack was landed and a few Lookdowns. After the tide switched to incoming and the water started clearing up, a few Mangrove Snapper hit live greenies. One Blue Runner was landed on shrimp. Hopefully the incoming continued to produce after our departure. The wind has picked up this afternoon and conditions must be a lot better for those still out on the jetties, it was very hot this morning with no wind. We have Easterly winds at 13 mph, gusting to 15 with no NOAA advisories in effect. The weekend looks like a good one for all of our anglers, boaters and shore based alike.
Laura Weinberger, her father Bill and friend Steve fished the north jetty at night when Laura landed the nice C/R Snook in our first photo on live shrimp.
We received an update from Jerry Connors who fished with his daughter Heather last night. Large Snook started feeding from 9:00 - 11:00 p.m. but all they wanted was large mullet and were only hitting on the ocean side. Jerry saw one oversized Red in the 30 lb. class come over the rails but afterward the bite turned off. Around 2:00 a.m. a school of Ladyfish were picky and short striking live shrimp. Heather landed the beautiful C/R Snook in photo two around 10:00 p.m. on live mullet. She had four hard strikes from 11:00 - 4:00 a.m.
