08-08-16 MONDAY: SNAPPER, JACKS, C/R REDS, LOOKDOWNS AND MACKEREL
We have a great morning for fishing the inlet. Overcast skies and a nice breeze are keeping the jetty anglers a little more comfortable. Winds are blowing out of the South at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and the water is calm. Winds are predicted to increase in the early afternoon and subside in the late afternoon. NOAA is calling for a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports a decent bite this morning. One very nice Mutton Snapper came over the rails along with some Mangroves. Lookdowns, Spanish Mackerel, oversized Reds and Jacks are active as well. We still have a lot of bait in the water and the cold water upwelling is pushing fish closer to shore.
Our angler of the day is Ryan Wood. Ryan fished the flats near the inlet and landed a huge Bonnet head Shark along with a Bluefish and a Trout. The Bonnet head is in our photo today.
