Sebastian Inlet Report
06-29-16 WEDNESDAY: THE BITE IS FAIR
It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 5 mph, gusting to 7 and the water is calm. Winds will shift to the Southeast this afternoon and we have a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. There are no NOAA advisories this morning.
We have a good amount of bait in the water, particularly running along the beaches. The water clears up a little more each day but the outgoing tide is still on the murky side. The incoming cleans it up and that seems to be when the Mangrove Snapper bite turns on. We aren't seeing a huge number of fish but we are seeing variety. Catch and release Snook, oversized Reds, Lookdowns, Margate, Sand Perch and Whiting in small numbers have been coming over the rails.
Our angler of the day is Don Welch of Sebastian. Don fished the north jetty when he landed his 14" Mangrove Snapper using mojarra. The wind was so still that morning, it was a scorcher! Not much came over the rails until the tide switched to incoming, when Don landed this nice fish.
