Sebastian Inlet Report
06-27-16 MONDAY: SPOTTY ACTION, THE HEAT IS ON!
We have another beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Northwest winds are blowing at 5 mph, gusting to 6 and the water is calm. Winds are predicted to increase some this afternoon and we have a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
Over the weekend we saw a nice variety of fish but not in large numbers according to Sarah and the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. We have a lot of bait in the water and fish are plentiful but lethargic due to the heat. The beaches are holding some nice fish also. Sarah recommends light tackle if fishing the beaches. A few Snapper, Margate, Lookdowns, Whiting, Reds, Mackerel and Blue Runners came over the rails over the weekend but it was spotty. The C/R Snook bite was good however. It's best not to target them during spawning season, but if you land one be sure you know how to handle it. All Snook are catch and release right now.
Our angler of the day is Bob Green of Vero Beach. Bob landed and released the 30" Red in our photo using live mullet. The Red was released unharmed right after the photo.
