Sebastian Inlet Report
09-20-16 TUESDAY: REDS, SNOOK, JACKS, SPANISH MACKEREL, BLUES AND LADYFISH
After some early morning rain, we have a gorgeous day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light chop on the ICW. Winds are predicted to shift to the East this afternoon and we have a chance of showers and thunderstorms this evening. There are no NOAA advisories and boating conditions are favorable through late week.
The fall mullet run has begun and they are bringing in lots of predators. Oversized and slot sized Reds have been giving anglers a good workout. Bringing those big beasts in can wipe a fisherman out. Oversized and slot sized Snook are still coming over the rails along with Spanish Mackerel, big Jacks, a few Blues and lots of Ladyfish. There's nothing better than fall fishing at the inlet.
Our first angler today is Tyler Lengyel. Tyler was fishing the beach when he hooked up with sixteen C/R Snook and two C/R Reds. Tyler said the action was so good that he couldn't take a break.
Our next three photos are courtesy of Aed Chinasa of Lakeland. Aed and two friends, Jason and Denver fished the south jetty using live mullet. Jason poses in photo two with a 40" monster C/R Red, Denver has a C/R Red in photo three and Jason is back with another C/R Red in photo four. All the Reds were released to fight another day!
