Sebastian Inlet Report
11-10-16 THURSDAY: THE BITE IS GOOD!
THE LAST 500' OF THE NORTH JETTY REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL THE GRATES CAN BE REPLACED. TWENTY TWO PANELS WILL NEED TO BE MANUFACTURED AND REPLACED. WE WILL KEEP YOU ADVISED ON OUR PROGRESS.
It's a beautiful morning at the Sebastian Inlet! Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 11 mph, gusting to 13 and there is a moderate chop on the water. While winds diminish, northeast swells will build, creating poor to hazardous boating conditions through this evening on the outgoing tides. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution for seas. The forecast is looking much better for our boaters over the weekend, it's about time!
There has been an excellent Snook bite and anglers are landing Snook all over the Park and on the Indian River Lagoon. The Flounder bite is underway and we are also seeing Reds, big Jacks, Ladyfish, Sheepshead, Pompano and Spanish Mackerel. With another "cold front" coming through, the weather is perfect to get out and wet a line. It could also invigorate the bite!
Our photos today are courtesy of Robert Pumarada and his son Ivan of Orlando. The father and son duo arrived around 5:00 p.m. and on Ivan's first cast he landed the nice 16" Trout in photo one they saw the sunrise over the inlet and Ivan landed the beautiful 16" Mutton Snapper in photo two!
