Sebastian Inlet Report
Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 4 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a moderate chop on the water. We have a few clouds over the inlet this morning and the forecast is calling for a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Keep it in mind if you are headed to the inlet today. We are getting into that time of year when rain and thunderstorms pop up quickly, especially in the afternoons.
Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports the Snook bite is "on fire", they are gearing up for spawning. The season closes June 1st - August 31st to give the species a chance to reproduce. The inlet is one of the best Snook breeding grounds that exist, please do not target the species during spawning season, it exhausts the fish and they need to conserve energy. We are starting to see Reds on the outgoing tides and schools of big Jacks are active this morning.
Our angler of the day is Eym Perez. Eym landed some late season Sheepshead from the north catwalk
