Scouting Around Sebastian Inlet
We have a warm summer morning at the inlet. Winds are barely moving out of the Northeast with an occasional gust of 2 mph and the water is calm. It looks like we will have nice boating weather over the weekend. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.
We have seen a decent Mangrove Snapper bite that was confirmed by Bob Green of Vero Beach. Bob fished the north jetty yesterday afternoon and landed a total of 10, keeping his limit of 5. He kept throwing the smaller 10 - 11" Snapper back, hoping for some bigger ones. He got his wish with five in the 12" - 15" range. Bob said one nice Mutton Snapper came over the rails and one Summer Flounder was landed.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported all the glass minnows are gone, the greenies have scattered and there's not many in the water now. A few finger mullet are swimming around. Blue Runners, Jacks and Spanish Mackerel round out the catches.
