Sebastian Inlet Report
07-20-16 WEDNESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, SPANISH MACKEREL AND BLUE RUNNERS
Winds are blowing out of the North-Northeast at 3 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms today, plan accordingly.
We are seeing typical summertime fishing patterns with the bite fair one day then slow the next. Mike Ricciardi and Bob Green, both of Vero Beach hit the north jetty yesterday from noon until 3:30 p.m. and reported slow action on the outgoing tide. A couple of Mackerel were landed on lures and a few undersized Snapper came over the rails but overall the afternoon was slow. They were told the morning hours brought a few Spanish Mackerel and a number of Mangrove Snapper, some were in the slot and some were short and returned. Mike landed and Spanish Mackerel and a Blue Runner so it wasn't a total loss and it was a beautiful day. T
Our angler of the day is Sam Nguyen of St. Cloud. Sam used a greenie to land the 10.5" Mangrove Snapper from the north jetty.
