Sebastian Inlet Report
09-28-16 WEDNESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, SNAPPER, MACKEREL, LOOKDOWNS, JACKS AND FLOUNDER
It's a beautiful morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 5 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a light chop on the water. Winds are predicted to shift to the South-Southeast this afternoon. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are likely.
Snook, Reds, Snapper, Mackerel, Barracuda, Sharks, Lookdowns and even a Flounder or two have been coming over the rails of the jetties. It looks like a great day to get out and wet a line!
Our first photo today features Felipe Gonzalez of Ocoee. Felipe and Tiffany Kelley made their first trip to the inlet and reported a great first time experience. They arrived at 9:30 Saturday morning and fished nonstop until 4:00 a.m. Sunday! Felipe was using an 8' rod with a Browning reel, 20 lb. test with a 60 lb. leader. Live mullet on a circle hook brought Felipe this beautiful 36" C/R Snook, his personal best! Snook and Reds were coming over the rails all day and night. He landed a slot Snook later in the evening.
Photos two and three are courtesy of Luke Vila of Kissimmee. Luke and Justin Mitchell fished the banks of the inlet using shrimp and mullet. Justin landed a Redfish and a small Shark and Luke landed a Mangrove Snapper. The men are strictly catch and release anglers.
