Sebastian Inlet Report
06-30-16 THURSDAY: THE BITE REMAINS FAIR
Winds are picking up thank goodness; the early morning was very still. We have southerly winds blowing at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and the water is calm. Winds are predicted to shift to the Southeast early this afternoon. We have a chance of showers and thunderstorms later today. We had a good rain shower yesterday afternoon, just when the water was starting to clear up!
Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports a few Mangrove Snapper coming over the rails; they are good sized but sparse. Blue Runners were active and Reds and Snook were hitting in low light periods. A few Spanish Mackerel and Whiting were chasing greenies in the surf yesterday.
Our first photo today features Andrew Horner of Melbourne. Andrew was fishing the south side when he landed the 45" C/R Snook using live shrimp around 12:15 in the morning,. Andrew released the fish unharmed right after the photo.
Photo two features Trenton Tessinari of Apopka with a good sized Blue Runner he landed off the north jetty using shrimp.
