Sebastian Inlet Report
09-26-16 MONDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SNAPPER, MACKEREL, LOOKDOWNS AND BLUES
We have variable light winds this morning that will increase and become East this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories but we have a good chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Pack accordingly if you head to the inlet today.
The weekend fishing was very good according to Tommy Turowski at Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. A lot of Snook and Reds came over the rails of the jetties. We're still seeing a lot of Snapper as well. Spanish Mackerel come and go, zipping around breaking off lures. Tommy said he's seeing Blues along the beach but they haven't been landed from the jetties yet. We have plenty of baitfish in the water. It's a good day to get out and wet a line!
Our photos today are courtesy of Ron Gruschow of Sunrise, FL. Ron met old friends Frank Masiello of Monroe, GA and Frank Kneuer of Senoia, GA in Sebastian for a week of vacation. The men grew up in south Florida and came to the inlet as teenagers and thought it was the perfect backdrop for a reunion, bringing their wives along this time. Huge bait pods were rolling in and the predators were actively seeking them. They all had a great time fishing the inlet; they landed Snook and Reds all week long. What a great way to reconnect with old friends!
