Sebastian Inlet Report
06-12-17 MONDAY: THE BITE IS STILL SLOW.....
Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 2 mph, gusting to 4 and there is a light chop on the water. We have a chance of showers after noon today. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. The forecast is calling for calm seas for the next few days but the chance of showers and thunderstorms are there too, consistent with summer weather patterns.
The bite is still slow from the jetties and beaches. Anglers fishing from boats aren't having a lot of luck either. The water temperature is still on the cool side and that is keeping the summer species from making their way to us. Every now and then we'll see a stray Mangrove Snapper but we are still waiting on the big schools. Tommy Turowski reported that the flats have been a little more productive. Those fishing the warmer, shallower areas in the river are having luck with Trout, a few Snapper and even Whiting.
Our angler of the day is Alexander Albaugh of Melbourne. Alexander went out the last night of Snook season to try his luck and landed this 33" C/R Snook on live greenies from the north catwalk. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo.
