Sebastian Inlet Report



The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The grates on the tip of the jetty are custom due to the angles; we are working on getting those replaced. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain this wonderful resource. Do not leave your clam shells on the deck, put them in the water. Pick up after yourself; do not leave litter lying on the deck. Put unwanted bait back into the water. Place your used fishing line in the provided containers, it saves wildlife and helps limit the number of tangled lines. Limit the number of rods to two at a time please, jetty real estate is valuable! DO NOT throw objects at boaters, no excuses. The western gate is a permanent fixture and can be closed at any time; it will be up the users of the jetty. 

We have another breezy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 15 mph, gusting to 16 and the water is choppy. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 10:00 a.m. this morning and poor to hazardous boating conditions are predicted into mid-week.

The bite has been very good at the inlet. Anglers are catching fish all over the State Park, from the beaches and in the Indian River. Black Drum have been plentiful, many have been in the 20" - 24" range, they are excellent at that size. The real big boys haven't arrived, and even though you may keep one over 24", they are best returned to the water to breed as they can be tough and sometimes wormy. We've seen some real monsters come over the rails of both jetties in the past! Reds, Snook, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Trout, Sheepshead and Blues round out the recent catches. Anglers are using live shrimp, clams, finger mullet if they can be found, bucktails and small bait fish. 

Our photos today are courtesy of Robert Pumarada of Orlando. Robert fished the inlet with his friends Jherson Baylon and Gonzalez Sumauyang. The men had a great time and landed plenty of fish for the cooler. Photo one is of Robert with a nice slot Snook, photo two is of the three men with some of their catches and the last photo is of Jherson Baylon at the cleaning station with their catches of the day which include Jherson's first Redfish!
