Sebastian Inlet Report
08-10-16 WEDNESDAY: MANGROVE SNAPPER, C/R SNOOK, REDS, LOOKDOWNS AND JACKS
We are back to lots of sunshine this morning and very little wind. East-Northeast winds are barely moving and gusting to 2 mph, there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories except a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Seas should be cooperative today.
Yesterday the Mangrove Snapper bite was decent in the afternoon according to Charlie Achinelli of Melbourne. Charlie landed his limit of slot Mangroves, a couple were real nice size. Charlie reported a real nice Mutton came over the rails as well. C/R Snook were actively being caught and released from the north jetty. REMINDER: Please lower the C/R Snook in the net you used to bring it over the rails, the drop from the north jetty is rough on the spawning fish. Always hold the fish horizontally with your hands under the jaw and belly to photograph; holding them vertically can damage their internal structure. For more information on proper handling of catch and release species, look at the links in the top right corner of this page.
Our first photo today is courtesy of Alec Barton of St. Cloud. The Red was a 36" C/R Red that was landed using a live greenie.
Photo two is of Charlie Achinelli's Mangrove Snapper from yesterday.
