Sebastian Inlet Report
08-01-16 MONDAY: MANGROVE AND MUTTON SNAPPER, JACKS, BLUE RUNNERS, LOOKDOWNS, REDS AND C/R SNOOK.
We have a beautiful summer morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East at 5 mph and there is a light chop on the water. NOAA is calling for a slight chance of showers today. The water is very clear at the inlet due to lack of rain and runoff.
Over the weekend we saw a few nice Mutton Snapper come over the rails according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. More mangrove than muttons were landed, along with Jacks, Lookdowns, Blue Runners and big Reds were landed as well. We are still seeing a lot of greenies in the water. C/R Snook are hungry due to spawning season but please handle the species with extra care.
Our angler of the day is Fabian Cruz of Polk County. Fabian was free-lining a live greenie from the north jetty when he landed and released the C/R Snook in our photo. Fabian was able to take home three keeper Mangrove Snapper that day.
