Sebastian Inlet Report
06-03-16 FRIDAY: SNOOK, SNAPPERS AND BLUE RUNNERS
The Friday forecast is for a mostly sunny day with a high near 87. Winds are out of the east at 10 to 15 mph. A few isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible. Ditto those conditions for the weekend with the exception of a 50% chance of showers on Sunday.
Good boating conditions are expected throughout the weekend with 2 to 3 foot seas and a light chop on the intracoastal. However, beginning early next week the conditions deteriorate when a developing low pressure system is predicted to move toward Florida.
Sarah from the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that the catch is predominantly C/R snook, mangrove snapper and blue runners today. The luckiest anglers are fishing the north jetty on the incoming and outgoing tides using shrimp or lures. With the exception of some heavy seaweed, conditions are great for getting your lines wet.
To celebrate the week, the state of Florida is offering free fishing days. These are days where anglers are allowed to fish without a fishing license. The license-free, saltwater days in Florida are Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5.
