Sebastian Inlet Report
07-08-16 FRIDAY: TGIF!
Winds are blowing out of the Southwest this morning at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds are forecasted to shift to the Southeast this afternoon. It looks as if we have a real nice weekend forecasted for our boaters and surf fisherman. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
With the water clearing up we are seeing the bite pick up a little. Sarah at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports this morning the Spanish Mackerel are hitting Gotcha lures, spoons and small bucktails. Blue Runners, Reds, C/R Snook, Barracuda, Sharks and Margate as also appearing. We have Mangrove Snapper coming over the rails, sometimes it's incoming tide and sometimes it's outgoing tide, summer fishing is unpredictable. A few Mutton Snapper have been in the mix too.
Our first angler today is Gretchen Barota of Delaware, OH. Gretchen landed this pretty C/R Snook early Thursday morning using a spoon rig with a plastic curly tail grub.
Photo two features inlet regular Bob Green of Vero Beach. Bob landed his C/R Snook last Thursday as well using a live greenie.
