Sebastian Inlet Report
08-25-16 THURSDAY: MANGROVE AND MUTTON SNAPPER, BLUE RUNNERS, SPANISH MACKEREL, C/R SNOOK AND BIG REDS
OUR WEB CAM IS DOWN. WE ARE ADDRESSING THE SITUATION.
We have added a new feature to our web site. Under "Useful Links" we've added the Sebastian Marine Forecast. Northwest winds are blowing at 10 mph this morning. Hurricane Gaston in the Atlantic is beginning to stir up the wind and will bring us some needed rain. Right now he is predicted to weaken before gaining strength again, and then veer off to the Northeast. That is good news for us although local showers can develop quickly and pack some high gusting winds.
Mangrove Snapper remain the draw for our jetty anglers. We've had a real good Mutton Snapper run this summer too. C/R Snook are hitting, oversized Reds, Blue Runners, a few Spanish Mackerel and Whiting are in the surf.
Our photos today are courtesy of George Olmo of St. Cloud. George reported when he was out with friends over the weekend, the Mutton Snapper bite was on fire. George agreed to tell us where he is from and that he was free-lining live shrimp but he won't disclose his secret spot and we can't blame him! George lost three Mutton Snapper; the first was devoured by a Barracuda. After that, four nice ones were landed along with a Porkfish.
Photo one is of George with one of the Mutton Snapper and photo two is of his catches that day.
