Sebastian Inlet Report
04-04-17 TUESDAY: BLUES, SNOOK, REDS, JACKS, MACKEREL AND TROUT
Winds are blowing out of the South-Southeast this morning at 11 mph with gusts to 16 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.
Bluefish continue to dominate the catches at the inlet. Snook, Sheepshead, small Jacks, a few Spanish Mackerel and Reds have been coming over the rails of the jetties in small numbers. There are some good sized Trout in the Indian River Lagoon. Snook, Reds, Jacks and a few scattered Pompano can be found there as well.
Our angler of the day is Bruce Rauert of Ft. Lauderdale. Bruce and his sons take an annual trip to come up and fish the Sebastian Inlet. The men fished the south jetty when Bruce landed the enormous Bluefish in the photo. Bruce was using a chunk of mullet with a 4 ounce pyramid sinker to land the beast!
