THE NORTH JETTY IS CLOSED UNTIL WE CAN REPLACE THE GRATES THAT WERE BLOWN OUT DURING HURRICANE MATTHEW. WE WILL KEEP YOU APRISED OF THE SITUATION THROUGH THE FISHING REPORT AND ON OUR HOME PAGE ADVISORY. ONCE THE GRATES ARE REPLACED, THE SUNSET TO SUNRISE CLOSURE WILL BE IN EFFECT FOR A TEMPORARY PERIOD. WE WILL NOTIFY YOU OF ANY CHANGES THROUGH THIS REPORT.
THE SEBASTIAN INLET STATE PARK IS OPEN ON THE NORTH SIDE BUT THE SOUTH SIDE REMAINS CLOSED INDEFINITELY. IF YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE AT THE STATE PARK, CALL 321-984-4852.
We have a very windy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 27 mph, gusting to 32 and the water is choppy. NOAA is calling for hazardous boating conditions and a small craft advisory is in effect through Oct. 12th at 8:00 p.m. We have a chance of isolated showers throughout the day today.
From what we've been hearing, the fish are hungry after Hurricane Matthew. The storm stirred everything up and fish have been everywhere, particularly on the flats. Reds, Tarpon, big Jacks, Snook, Flounder and even a few Blues have started to show up along the beaches.
Our first photo today features 14 year old Melbourne High School student Gregory Prieto. Gregory landed the beautiful 18" Mangrove Snapper from the north jetty using live shrimp.
Photo two features Jason Stephens of Kissimmee. Jason landed the 30" slot Snook in the photo on a giant shrimp from the tip of the north jetty.
