Sebastian Inlet Report
07-07-16 THURSDAY: MANGROVE AND MUTTON SNAPPER , REDS, SPANISH MACKEREL, BLUE RUNNERS AND MARGATE
We have another beautiful, hot, steamy day ahead of us. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 8 mph this morning, gusting to 12. Winds will shift to the Southeast this afternoon. There is a light chop on the water and no NOAA advisories this morning.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop gave us an update this morning; it was great to hear his voice again. Mangrove Snapper remain the most targeted species right now and this morning there were a couple of Mutton Snapper in the mix. Fishing is always on the slow side in the summer but a few Reds, Snook, Blue Runners and Spanish Mackerel are making appearances. There are schools of greenies in and around the inlet.
Our angler of the day is Brandon Haney of St. Cloud. Brandon was fishing west of the bridge when he pulled in the juvenile Cobia in the photo on a live mullet. The fish was released safely right after the photo.
