Sebastian Inlet Report
07-11-16 MONDAY: SPANISH MACKEREL, LOOKDOWNS, MANGROVE SNAPPER AND BARRACUDA
This morning winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast at 11 mph, gusting to 15 and there is a light chop on the water. The wind is welcomed by our inlet anglers, we been experiencing such intense heat. NOAA is calling for the wind to increase this afternoon and there is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.
The bite has picked up according to Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. She reports that over the weekend Spanish Mackerel were active along with Lookdowns and Mangrove Snapper. A few Barracuda have been hanging around the north jetty. There is still a good amount of greenies (menhaden) and croakers in the water. Conditions are perfect for getting out and wetting a line.
Our angler of the day is Jake Barker. Jake landed and released the 40" Barracuda in today's photo on the morning outgoing tide using a live pogie.
