Sebastian Inlet Report
09-19-16 MONDAY: FISHING IS HOT!
It's a lovely morning at the inlet! Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds are predicted to increase a little and shift to the Southwest this afternoon which may bring us some showers and potential thunderstorms. There are no NOAA advisories.
If you take a look at the web cam, you can see that the jetties are crowded with anglers. The word travels quickly when the bite is on and it is hot right now. Although the official start of fall isn't until Thursday, fall fishing is underway. We are seeing a lot of finger mullet schooling in the inlet, on the flats and around both jetties. Those bait fish are bringing in some real sweet catches. Reds and Snook have been exploding through the schools of bait creating quite a show for the inlet anglers. Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that some big Spanish Mackerel have moved in and are snatching lures left and right. A large Permit was landed from the north jetty this morning.
Our photos today is of Lebo who is not as happy with his big Toadfish. Cheer up Brian, it's still a fish species!
